Stop trying to justify Wii U sales by comparing them to Wii.

I keep seeing people saying that Wii U sales are comparable to Wii sales at the same point in its life and how that means Wii U is doing fine. It's not. There was a severe shortage of Wii systems for a long time. This means that if there had been more of them, they would have sold and the Wii sales numbers at this point inits life would have been much higher. The Wii U is available on shelves everywhere and is not selling out. It is nowhere near what the pace of the Wii would have been if it had been widely available.
