So if Xbox 3 and PS4 sells less than Wii U, will they be considered failing?

People are claiming that Wii U is failing based on early sales. Same with 3DS and Vita. So if Xbox 3, and PS4 come out AND early sales are less than Wii U, will people say that they are failing as well?

How many units need to be sold so that people won't call these systems "failures?"

Bethesda not convinced people will buy the next xbox and PS4: your install base always starts at zero

They won't be failures, because M$ony are so much better than Nintendo in every way shape and form.

At least that's what people keep trying to convince us, anyways.

Thing is, Wii U sold more than Xbox360/PS3 at launch.
Its just the usual Nintendoomed crap that the trolls like to spread.

When NextBox/PS4 sell less than current consoles at launch, it will just be constant excuses from the trolls.

It won't matter if they sell a lot or very little. What the trolls say, even if they are wrong, will always be right in their eyes, so the Wii U is failing, and the 720/PS4 are already winning based on rumors and no sales.

No, because for them it's a marathon, not a sprint. Nintendo's the only one that needs to sprint, and even if they do they're doing it wrong.

You know what, I think they're going to sidestep and say "sales don't matter."

If they release with no must have game for months, underwhelming sales, worse graphics than the previous gen, a horribly slow OS, a major issue with freezing, and a lack of basic features I think we can consider their launches failures.

Whos gonna nitpick first?
