It's a distinct possibility. The poor sales may have more to do with the global recession than most would care to think. They could all find out that there just isn't a market for new consoles at the moment, people may just not be willing to spend hundreds on a new piece of hardware when they like what they have already.

the wii u is a failure though. no one is "trying" to say it. it said it itself.

i doesnt matter if their launch sales will be bad, by then the wiiu will have a good installed base and so devs will just port the games between the 3 consoles


wishful thinking

Well, the 720s sales will probably be at least as low as the Wii U's, if not lower, considering it doesn't sell in Japan.


irrelevant, The Wii U didn't even sell well in Japan.

Fabrication.

Considering we are in recession, it's doing pretty well.

i expect them to have lower sales then the wii u due to simply having a higher price then the wii u. higher the price the lower the sales. failure depends on how high its expected to sell and how little in reality it did.

The Wii U has sold 750,000 in Japan so far. The 360's entire lifetime sales in Japan are 1.6 million. So no, it is not irrelevant. The next Xbox's world wide sales won't surpass Wii U sales any time soon because Xbox doesn't sell in Japan.

It would suck for those consoles but numbers do tend to climb.
