Ha! Lemmy posts the last article, dated Dec 7! Which talks more about ALL Nintendo hardware sales, not Wii U. Thank god 3DS is selling well or Reggie would be hanging from the rafters!

Hey, Lemmy! Try giving us articles from the last few days!

Google: wii u sales (then sort by last week). Have a pick at all the article showing weak Wii U sales!

I'm not saying the article is right, but I don't find it hard to believe. There are a lack of games and a lack of games coming out soon. Even in comparison to the PS3 and 360 at launch, it's kind of pathetic.

ZombiU is Game of the Year 2012

From Yahoo:
"But weirdly enough, the brand new and heavily promoted Wii U home console wobbled badly as its weekly sales slipped to 122,000 units from 130,000 units in the previous week. This may have been the biggest week in Japanese console market in 2012, so the stakes were high.

To put Wii U performance in context, the old PSP portable console sold 58,000 units in Japan during the same week. It is not an encouraging sign that the more than half-decade old PSP (which was displaced by the PlayStation Vita a year ago) managed to sell nearly half as many units as the brand new Wii U during the holidays. Of course, PS Vita continues to miss sales expectations dramatically — it sold only 19,000 units last week, barely more than a quarter of what its predecessor managed."

Lemmy, try to show stories that show the latest drop in Wii U sales from last week, not 3 weeks ago.

Wii U sales are a big concern for Nintendo right now. Add to this, software sales, including NSMBU and Zombi U have been very weak.


God you can be dumb...NSMBU is over 1 million sales worldwide. Sure my source is vgchartz...not entirely accurate but close enough to know that around 1 million after only one month for a new system is excellent! Zombi U is at an estimated 300,000. Pretty good, that's probably not counting downloads and maybe not the bundles either. What the hell do you expect from launch games? Call of Duty sales?

Does the article concentrate on Japan, or is it global.. I didn't read it.
