stop assuming the WiiU will recover like the 3DS

Isn't the Wii U selling far better than most other consoles did at launch? I'm not sure why we're even discussing a "recovery" when its launch has been more successful than the PS3 and Xbox 360's.

Nope.

Inception!

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


Yeah. Maybe both people should stop assuming either way, shut the f*** up, and just wait to see what happens.

The Sony Ponies are still in denial, so they need to so everything they can to reassure themselves.

"Next to other comparable launches the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 the Wii U has done better. This is encouraging, as the Wii U is launching into a more challenging market than the PS3 and 360 were back in 2006 and 2007. Ars Technica uses the US sales figures as a comparison, setting 400,000 first-week Wii U systems against 197,000 PS3s and 326,000 Xboxes sold in the first two weeks. In Japan, in the first 3 weeks, digging back through Media Create data, the PS3 only shifted 156,400. Looking at how the PS3 and 360 tracked over the first month of their launches, the Wii U is almost certainly ahead."

From the same link: "The PS3 had a disastrous launch, though, plagued by stock confusion and a ridiculous price tag"

With ridiculous shortages and price tag the PS3 still sold half of what the Wii U (that you can find anywhere and is half the price) sold. Yep. That's not selling better. Thanks for proving me right.

I don't think it works that way lol. The fact of the matter still stands, the Wii U sold better than the Xbox 360 and PS3. You seem mad about that. Why are you so angry? Be like me, and enjoy all of the systems instead of being a hater that comes off as childish and jelly.

Yep, you're mad lol. You're mad and throwing a temper tantrum. Typical fanboy. Should I send you a picture of me playing all of the consoles at the same time, while laughing at your angry posts on my gaming computer? Will that make you feel a bit better?
