Yes, second best launch in history (loses to the Wii) is indeed meek.


lol uh what? the WiiU launch is quite possibly one of the worst system launches in gaming history


It did better than the 360 and PS3 launches.


6-7 years ago is the best you can use as a defense? Too bad it can barely do what those same consoles did at launch: Be better than the previous gen systems of the competitors.


You completely trolled yourself in your own post.

ITT: Comparing it to 6-7 year old consoles? LOL BEST YOU CAN DO. TOO BAD 6-7 YEAR OLD CONSOLES ARE BETTER.

But the point is we are talking LAUNCH SALES. For launch sales this isn't bad, bot by a long shot when we consider it's just the US and EU numbers only.


Yeah, and many other consoles sold much better at their launch, this is pretty bad. Especially when most launches sell out very fast, whereas the Wii U is documented as not being sold out at all.

And so far the Wii U in US has sold roughly near those other launches in a week. Again it's really not bad. Doing bad would be like if it sold 100,000 copies in the span of a few weeks.

It sure beat the pants off of PS4 and 720 sales.

Dreamcast sold half of what the Wii U has sold in a week in 24 hours.
PS2 sold more in 2 days than the Wii U sold in a week.
PS3 sold nearly 6 times more in the EU than the Wii U did, and that was just in 2 days!
Even the PSP sold more in the UK than the Wii U did in all of the EU.

It's okay to admit that this launch isn't selling good, let's just hope Japan has a craving for Wii U.

I wonder if the poor EU sales are related to Nintendo locking 18+ content until the Wii hours of the night...

PS3 had a poor launch in the US, we know. It showed strong in the EU though.

Wii U is having a weak launch in the EU and US though, so...

Ia anyone actually expecting poor sales in Japan?
