Why did you stop making topics about Media Create in NGG?

because other people do it. I only post them on the Vita board now.

"Wii U is being sold at a loss, Nintendo isn't going to lower the price anytime soon. " I can't wait to see them
defend the price cut that IS going to happen soon.

Either way, it's still a new console. There's no excuse for such low numbers.


actually, reggie himself said that buying one game turns the wii u into a profit. So yes, they can go lower. But they dont want to because the 3ds burned them bad

The PS3 sold 22000 so wiiU's 20000 isn't so bad. Yes I'm sure everyone would like it to do better, but it's not doing bad at all.


If I remember correctly PS3 was out of stock for longer periods. Wii U had no problems stocking up.


The Wii U didnt sell too bad. 150,000 per year is pretty good for a consoles launch. But in order to achieve those numbers enough
consoles have to be in stock. So few units were made probably because they didnt know how it was gonna do.

My Predictions as of September 2012:
Vita will be discontinued in 2013 - Wii U will struggle after launch, PS4 will NOT launch in 2013
