Wii U sales are looking good in NA
lol vgchartz. The worst site to get recent information ever. The only time they are right is years later, after they have time to steal all their info from other sites.
If you know of a better alternative please post a link.....

The Wii U is about 1 year into it's life cycle and your comparing it's sales to 7 and 8 year old consoles and the 360 still doubled the Wii U sales. If you look at global sales they are not even on pace to have a 15 mill unit install base after 5 YEARS!
You have to compare 1st year 360/PS3 stats to current Wii U stats for any credibility. I highly doubt both were doing 200+k a week globally. Remember PS3 had a huge price cut/revision in it's first year. 29k a week is a positive sign given all of the negative factors the console has going for it. This is still the beginning of the software surge on the Wii U and i am more interested in Year End Numbers.
They need to market this thing badly, there is a market for the console. They just need to get the word out.

29k a week for NA isn't good but it's better than what they were producing before the price cut. They were hovering around 10k a week. With the price cut hitting Europe and Japan later this month I can see potential sales of 50-60k a week. Also, most people fail to realize that the holidays are the biggest push for sales for Nintendo consoles. So even if you do the 52 x 50k = 2.6million a year, you forget that it will sell a million or two extra just during Christmas alone. Once Mario Kart and Smash Bros comes out next year, expect MUCH bigger numbers.
