It's bad when they can't outsell the other consoles despite them having many benefits on their side:

1. More gamers now then there were back then
2. Launched with Mario, this is a HUGE bonus
3. Launched during the BUSIEST shopping days of the week

Again, be realistic.


To bad the worldwide economy kinda sorta blows right now... Otherwise, perhaps you'd be right.

Really, what good does comparing the Wii U sales to previous gens do, anyways? The Wii U could in it's life time sell just as many units as the Sega Saturn and still be considered to be the winner of this gen if it happens to outsell the competition...

425k units for a week in the US
178k units for a week in the EU

Let's hope Japan likes this thing, since it's looking pretty meek everywhere else...


you are aware that if this thing does 250k in japan it will become the fastest selling launch console of all time, right?

"About 100 people were waiting outside Bic Camera's flagship store in Tokyo's Ikebukuro commercial district before it opened at 8 am, with the number quickly swelling to several hundred, an AFP photographer said."
