Looks like they are getting on the Wii U hating bandwagon today. They are upset that Skylander didn't sell well in the 6-11 age group and are "concerned."

I can't remember the last time I bought an Activision game (maybe Guitar Hero III), but talk about a self-fulfilling prophecy. IMO they've released junk/late ports so far on the Wii U (not interested in BO2) and they expect to sell millions or something? Thoughts?

How can you be disappointed in an event you did nothing to avoid?

Hmm, concerned with this and not the fact that we are, perhaps, in the midst of the largest global recession ever known and therefore parents of said 6-11 year olds have less disposable income.

Business degrees pay dividends.

Must be why Ubisoft decided to port the Rayman game to other consoles.

It's starting to look like the only exclusives Wii U will have, be the ones from Nintendo or ones that Nintendo purchases.
