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...
