If Nintendo is so inferior, how come it's outselling the competition?

As much as I love Nintendo products, minus the Wii, it's because they appeal to kids. Kids buy video games more than anyone.

Appeal to kids =/= good games for people that post on GameFAQs.

And, of course, the Nintendo DS is now the best selling video game system in the history of video game systems. It just surpassed the PS2.

So if Nintendo sucks so much, how come everything listed in the original post has defeated its competition?


Not true, the PS2 is still the highest selling, DS has 4 million to go.


In the US. Globally, the DS has a slight edge over the PS2 (about 200k)


Is this the chance when VGChartz becomes a highly reliable webpage?

The Wii has outsold the PS3 and Xbox 360.
The DS has outsold the PSP.
The 3DS is outselling the Vita.
The Wii U is outselling Sony and Microsoft because they haven't even released a new console.

So if Nintendo is so technologically inferior, how come they keep winning? People love Nintendo; that's why they buy it instead of Sony or Microsoft.


Dreamcast had a huge launch but see what happened to them. Big launches don't mean crap and who's comparing handhelds everybody knows Nintendo is king in that department. Don't compare handhelds sold to consoles you can't make that comparison.

This topic is inaccurate when it claims Wii U is outselling everything.
#107StealthlysPosted 12/28/2012 8:45:36 AM
It is. But it was good topic none the less.

It's not. The December numbers aren't out for the 360 yet. I'm sure if the 360 is selling 750k units versus 400k for the Wii U, the 360 will come out on top again.

The Nintendrones are comparing launch numbers, but the 360 was sold out while Wii U's are piling up on shelves. Wii's were also hard to attain at launch. Microsoft had chipset problems and things were not smooth at the beginning. Many of the Nintendo folk are simply acting as if this stuff never happened and the Wii U is on it's way to dominate the competition for years to come.
