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.


The Wii U is not outselling crap. 360 is still dominating it's ass.

Old news.


This topic is inaccurate when it claims Wii U is outselling everything.


You're dense.

The Wii U is outselling its competition, because it has NONE. Sony and Microsoft have not released their next generation console.

However, in the current generation, the Wii is outselling its competition: the XBox360 and the PS3.

The DS also outsold its competition, the PSP. And the 3DS is outselling its competition, the Vita.

You're delusional. The Wii U's competition is current gen, as it's a current gen system. The Wii isn't outselling anything either. The fad already dried up. Does it have better all time sales numbers? Sure it does but the Wii was a phenomenon. It was also underpriced and dominated the casual market (grandma, grandpa, children etc.)

The Wii U is next generation. There's no debating this point. I am done having a discussion with you, because clearly you are an intellectual inferior.

The only things that a "real" gamer needs to have is a gaming quality PC and a PS3. Everything else should be considered irrelevant to a "real" gamer. I'll admit that the new XBOX might be worth buying as a cost-effective 2nd PC(I'm actually planning on buying one and using it as a 2nd PC to replace my old one) but the 360 is trash and after this generation every single one should be forcibly collected by the government and tossed in the desert.

Nintendo hasn't been relevant in 2 decades but they were supposedly the company that started it all and then they just slowly died.

Slowing dying things don't outsell all of their competition.

Sales

Wii > xbox and ps3
DS > PSP
3DS > Vita
Wii U > no current competition

Also, PC gaming is not "gaming;" it's sitting at home because you have no significant other or friends, playing World of Warcraft while drinking Mountain Dew and eating Cheetos. That's not "gaming," that's wasting your life.

>implying all pc elitists eat/drink soda/sugary drinks, or Cheetos/x game snack you prefer.

Much like other gamer's on gfaqs, I drink water while at the pc.

Justin Bieber has outsold tons and tons of bands....so, yeah.

Not saying anything against Nintendo, but sales =/= superior or inferior in any measurement other than just that, sales.

If you have a gaming PC, why a PS3? All of the good games on PS3 are better on PC.

Gaming is like a pair of boobs - Sony and Microsoft fight over whos boobs look more realistic, while Nintendo is about having fun with them - Walkiethrougie
