"But, Nintendo's insistence on avoiding the dual-analog controller design that many passionate gamers prefer may lead to the demise of the Wii U."

What? The Wii has dual analogs. What the hell is this article on about?


Yeah, every controller on the Wii U has dual analogs. I have no idea what they're going on about.

The Gamepad, the Pro controller, even the effing Wii Classic controller has it.

Also....

"Kuittinen adds that the PS Vita has also been selling dramatically below expectations, which doesn't bode well for Nintendo."

Yep, because the PS Vita is definitely a Nintendo handheld.....

The author tried to make it a big deal that the Wii U "only" outsold the Vita 2-to-1.

Seriously? What was the point of posting various links that referenced the exact same bad article as if they're reporting something new? Also, how is the Wii U selling horribly and in its launch month it sold nearly double what the 360 sold its first month and nearly triple what the PS3 did its first month?

I want to know what the idigitaltimes guy was smoking. How does the PS Vita not selling well not bode well for Nintendo? Credibility shattered. This must have been a life and death topic for the TC for him to go through the trouble of making sure he found all links that stated Nintendo wasn't doing well. lol

Wait wait wait. Since when does going from 130,000 to 122,000 equate to a 66% difference? Can you even maths? To be 66% the Wii U would have to have gone from 130k to 44k sales. They teach percentages in grade school for goodness sake.

TC failing hard. If you think Wii U has a problem, then you're seriously mistaken.

How long did it take these consoles to pass the 1.8 million mark?

Wii U - 1,817,166 units - Nov 18, 2012 to Dec 15, 2012 - 28 days, avg ~64.9k/day
Wii - 2,071,242 units - Nov 19, 2012 to Dec 16, 2012 - 28 days, avg ~74k/day
360 - 1,873,067 units - Nov 22, 2005 to Feb 11, 2006 - 81 days, avg ~23.1k/day
PS3 - 1,822,853 units - Nov 11, 2006 to Feb 17, 2007 - 98 days, avg ~18.6k/day

How many more units were sold the week after they reached their 1.8 million mark?

Wii U - 390,662 - Dec 15 to Dec 22 - avg ~55.8k/day
Wii - 597,968 - Dec 16 to Dec 23 - avg ~85.4k/day
360 - 73,486 - Feb 11 to Feb 18 - avg ~10.5k/day
PS3 - 49,869 - Feb 17 to Feb 24 - avg ~7.1k/day

Is the Wii U in trouble? I seriously doubt it.


tc conveniently ignoring this post. tbh what i think happened is that all the people remembered the wii shortage and rushed out to get this asap. all those early sales are the late december xmas presents. you could be right but as far as i can see it, all you've done all day is google ways to reassure your decision to sell your wii u. meanwhile, we enjoy ourselves on ours, caring not at all of sales numbers.

lol, first it was 6+4=11, and now we have 66% of 130k = 122k. Is this what trolls are taught these days? Better give them double homework.

Double Homework.

Trolls would only do a fraction of work before.

So 1/x x 2 = 1/2x

So Trolls could do less homework than before! because to find x you need it on both sides!
