This. Also, could you get the 3DS's numbers as well?

3DS:4897-5935-1924; PS3 sold in anticipation of PS4. If you added CrimsonEnigma, I no longer use the account.

^ this. Sony didn't send a lot of consoles to retailers so they "sold out".

So the third week Wii U numbers aren't as terrible as some would have us believe.

There's a reason for the sales of the 360 when it launched in Japan. If all you're going to do is put LOL over the sales numbers, then your whole argument is moot.

This really doesn't seem to carry much weight, either way. Each console has different histories. The real question is not what it sold, but things like what it sold compared to stock, how it sold compared to expectations of the company and eventually what the sales in the coming weeks and months will be like.

In terms of hype and demand, the Wii U is not at the level one would expect of a new console . Certainly one from a company that is in serious financial trouble due to a major miscalculation with the 3DS price drop.

Look, I understand you are trying to defend the Wii U, but putting LOL next to one of the consoles is freaking pointless and just gives ammo for the trolls trashing the WiiU. You are hurting more than helping doing that.

And to be honest, what the heck is the point anyway? I'd rather be enjoying the WiiU than wasting time trying to defend it against people you are never going to convince. Trolls keeping you from playing the WiiU with their pointless topics is a victory for them. DON'T GIVE IN!!
