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


Will? It already is.


See that's funny because all the data says otherwise.


Except they don't, actually.


So the fact that the system has outsold every home console aside from the Wii in a 2 month time span means that it is failing?

You need to learn what "shipped" means, son. You will be sorely disappointed.

Yeah you're right. 2.5 million consoles in less than 2 months is a massive failure.

Nintendo- What other gaming company has been around sincenthe 1800's?

I am aware of what shipped means. You need to understand a company will not SHIP 2 million extra consoles if there isn't a DEMAND for said consoles. Simple economics.

It is. 2.5 million consoles shipped in 2 months (one of them being a month of huge sales, I won't say which) and, yet, it only sold a fraction of those consoles. The PS3 with its higher launch price and shortages sold (not shipped) more than the Wii U in the same time period. And how can we forget that even the Vita is outselling the Wii U in Europe? Hahahahaha.

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


wasnt aware that the wii U was in need of a recovery. Last news story i read said they were doing fairly well.......

You need to learn that you don't know what you're talking about since these numbers are based on sales and not what was shipped.

You mean the one at the bottom of the page where the president of Nintendo says the Wii U is doing "not bad"? That's damage control. If the Wii U were doing well, he would've said "great" or "excellent," not "not bad."

Not to mention it's the President of Nintendo saying it, so he's going to exaggerate a bit.
