50% lower than the software sales for the GameCube? 0_o

I was under the impression that the Wii U was doing pretty well, but if this is true, then I'm worried this console is going to outright die...

Mario vs. Donkey Kong is a hideously underrated game.

Kinda hard to sell games when there are none worth buying.

I actually tried Rayman today, it's bad too. Ruuined by the gimmick stuff.

So much for selling at a loss lol

You can judge something's success by the amount of critics and haters it gathers...by that standard alone the Wii U is the most successful console ever! ( there must not be anything fun to play on 360 or ps3 since they have so much time to troll)

It doesn't make any sense that the WII U could sell almost 3 million units in less than two months, yet no ones buying the games. The article even says that the Wii U has generated more revenue than the Wii, despite not selling as much AND selling at a loss. There's some missing link here.

Do these numbers track digital sales? I want the full story before jumping to any conclusions.

I don't think so. Hard to say how much that would skew the numbers.
