RECON64bit posted...yes way to look at the numbers, when records are being broken even in the midst of economic collapse.
brb video games are still selling more than they did a decade ago.
brb one month of february in comparison to previous benchmarks set by current gen/last gen.

freedree posted...The reason why people are saying the Wii U is selling poorly, I think, is because of the fact that it is Nintendo, that the Wii sold so much.
AAaaahh, I kept hearing that it did better then the xbox 360 and the PS3 in the same time frame XD, then again, I didn't really take the time to look it up myself, and I can't even remember where I hear it lol.

So numbers from 10 years ago, and a generation ago means business is fine?
First of all you're responding to a troll, second if you look at total sales from launch till now, and compare the similar periods for the ps3 and 360 the wiiU beat them pretty well. Third the month to month sales figures are estimates, and news has shown that they're likely underestimates. Fourth if you compare past console launches the wiiU is not really that far off average. Console sales for the first year tend to hover around the 100k a month range. Most consoles(the successful ones) have slow starts and then pick up and start selling in their 3rd and 4th years.
Here's a fun fact, the ps2 is the best selling home console of all time, in it's first year it sold worse than the dreamcast, ps1, and n64 in that same year.
People did the exact same thing for the 3ds, we've linked to those thread before, it's the nintendo cycle and they're going to look just as foolish. But see that doesn't matter they're trolls they don't care about facts and logic.
PS3 had a bloated price and crappy titles at launch. 360 couldn't be manufactured fast enough to meet demand, so how does that even compare to U's situation? They flooded the market so that there wouldn't be a shortage, and people didn't bite
Drone? Really, Zaggy? You be trollin', son. I own every system dating back to the NES. I own the games you listed. That doesn't make them games that I would want to be stranded with on an island, if I had to choose.
You know what I see in your list, despite owning them?
Gritty RPG with no imagination, gritty RPG with no imagination, gritty platformer, gritty platformer mixed with endless shooting x3, gritty FPS, another gritty FPS, gritty bootleg shooter that plays like an RPG with no imagination, FPS puzzle game, RTS, gritty FPS x2, don't know anything about Fez, good game but too short, gritty action/RPG by insecure japanese developers who try to westernize things because they're afraid to use their imagination, gritty third person shooter x4, superbly milked franchise that plays the same, gritty shooter/RPG, gritty american RPG with no imagination, FPS x2, gritty GTA wannabe, Minecraft is the only thing that dared to be different.

If it weren't for these games, the 7th gen would have sucked hardcore, thanks to everything needing to be gritty, M-Rated, and lacking originality and imagination. These games are from my personal collection, so you were dead wrong about me being a drone. Troll harder. :P
The ALL THINGS GAMING fanboy. PSWiiU60DSPVita FTW! 1356 games and still growing. XBL: GameMaster1178 PSN: megax28 Wii U: GameMaster1178
what's the point of console vs consoles?
what's the point of console vs PC?
what's the point of game vs another game?
I really don't get gamers nowadays, can't you just play the game and have fun with it?
Games, Manga, Anime, Gunpla, Figures ONLY!
I now conclude that, Ever17's story is eminently the BEST story of all I've seen/read in my "entire life".
Wouldn't it be fair to allow wii u to reach 7 years and then compare at the 7 year mark?
As of right now you're comparing 7 years to 4 months.
Old School Games FTW!
Everything about the wii u is next gen.
If the wii u was released during the same time as ps3 and 360 it would have murdered both of them.
JUST from media alone it would destroy Xbox 360 and no forced installs like PS3.
Old School Games FTW!
