I wouldn't say life support, considering this time period is historically terrible for game sales. Also, the Wii U is getting the major releases come March.

As much as I'm not into Nintendo's first party titles, they do have a very strong following and with the line up they have set up for the next few months I don't think anybody here has anything to worry about.

That's in April-May, which is right when the releases for Wii U are suspected to pick up.

It's only been out in Japan for 55 days. Way too soon to claim it's on life support.

TC knows nothing about sales patterns. This point in the year is terrible for sales. Every retail outlet suffers. Once Spring comes around, sales pick up.

These days, all the kids are playing M rated games while the adults are lining up for Pokemon. Which game is a kid's game now?

No no no lol. It isn't flopping hard. It's selling well for a system that is having few releases. Also, it's a normal gaming drought period right now. Further, 3 million Wii U's sold in 2 months is not flopping at all.
