Genetics, Japan and NA, however, it talks about how big an indicator Japan is for Nintendo hardware.

Not good news.

Warning, Lemmy posts old links!

Bottom line, Wii U off to disappointing start.

1st, you actually have to own one to sell it.
2nd, in post #5 and #24 you posted the same article. Lame....

The only system to sell more than the Wii U in Japan the week of Dec 22 was the 3DS. Yeah, it's doing fine.

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."


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


It doesn't matter...I didn't read it either. As soon as I saw Yahoo I knew it was garbage. All these articles that are posted are garbage. Mine included, I was just showing him that their are both positive and negative articles out there. Bottom line is it's too soon to tell until more numbers come out. Even then it's still too soon. Look how the 3DS is exploding after the slow start.
