there's 3 major differences, profit, competition & 3rd party support

Nintendo was only able to slash the price of the 3DS because it was originally profitable, they're losing money on the WiiU so they really don't have any room for a price cut

the 3DS only had to compete against the Vita, the WiiU has much stronger competition in the 360 & PS3

Nintendo hasn't had problems getting 3rd party support for their handhelds while they've struggled to get support for their consoles

Maybe you should stop assuming the Wii U will sell poorly.

Especially since it has already sold 2.5 million units in less than 2 months.

What is there to recover from at this point? Its already been stated that the console sold 2.5 million units in less than two full months on the market. You know what other home console sold more in that time span? The Wii. If in 12 months the system sales have become stagnate even after e3 then we can talk about recovery.

You sound mad just because people think it will be a success.
