I almost feel bad for the fantrolls, they are so focused on proving the Wii U is okay that they attempt at making up facts like "this is the second best launch in history!!!" when it's clearly not, lol.


Kind of like you when you said it was "Definitely up there with some of the worst" launches?


So far in the EU it is :)

And anyone that thinks the console is in short supply in the EU... lol

So, you've gone to cherry picking now? I guess we can do the same with the PS3 and 360 launches now, right?

Right, so definitely isn't true about shortages then, thanks. Which doesn't in and of itself mean the console is doing really badly, it can be that Nintendo recalled the shortages surrounding the Wii's launch and (perhaps over-) compensated this time.

And shortages in UK had nothing to do with it?


Were there definitely confirmed to be some? I was wondering about that, I asked at my local Game store yesterday and they said they still had a lot in stock. Was definitely not the case with the Wii, so I would've thought if anything Nintendo might be careful to make more stock available this time.


There was/is no shortage in the EU, lol.
I am pretty sure Europeans are not going to pay those bootleg prices for a system that on par with the current gen.

Can't blame them. I'm sure Squatch is saving up his welfare checks to purchase another console for glorious Nintendo though.

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.


And especially the Vita launch.
Call me a fanboy, call me a drone, but remember, you don't have Cubone.

Which is funny, since the fanboys were touting some 500k preorder number. Looks like most people chose to not pick up their preorders... lol
