This early, it means nothing.

This early, like for the Wii, it's only the true Nintendo fans buying.

It's going to be far more telling in a year or so when the same people that bought a Wii don't buy a Wii-U.

No.

They're doomed.


But seriously, while they're doing okayish right now, the real problem is the sharp decline they'll likely face.

The problem with that is, The Wii was sold out

The Wii U is not.. 3 million shipped and reportedly around 2 million sold to consumers

Wait and see what happens to the Wii U sales when the TRUE next gen consoles come out. 3rd party developers will be tripping over themselves as they abandon the Wii U in favor of making games on PROFITABLE systems. 3rd party developers have NEVER made more money on a Nintendo console compared to a Sony / MS consoles.
