even without all the bad mouth, bad press, lack of games and they can have ads everywhere and it won't help...

because the real reason they can't do as well is because they shot themselves in the foot trying bash Nintendo for not getting on board with EA and no used games by doing so the bashing by developers and game critics have led to several price drops for the system, games and accessories which in this economy I'm afraid the competition has priced themselves right out of business....

KARMA REALLY IS A YOU KNOW WHAT!!!!

with all these companies dying its really looking bad for M$ and $ony and if Capcom goes under they are finished and they know it, the only way to survive is to delay next gen by 2 years or more...

Let's not kid yourself. The PS4 will probably sell more than that by the end of 2013.

Youre either crazy or stupid if you honestly believe that, i can see them doing that in the first week.

PS4 is only $100 more expensive than Wii U and far more future-proof for third-party titles (meaning, less likely to collect dust and end up a "waste" of your hundreds).

If the Wii U was actually priced worth it's hardware ($200-$250 max) you might've had a point.

You for got to add the cost of a PS vita to that to really mimic the Wii U....

Due to early Wii U launch, it will still dominate the sales. I expect PS4 to have high sales at launch, reducing in next 11 months. PS4 high sales + little Xbone sales should equal Wi U by 2015.

Sony, so they can sell the Vita.

Lets be honest here, its not like the WiiU set the bar very high :/

Xbox1 could possibly surpass the U's numbers, but the PS4 definitely will.

At this point, the WiiU is to the point that I'm not so sure if it will ever have a huge sales surge. Awhile back, I was under the impression that Mario, Smash, and Kart would bump these numbers in a big way, but now I'm not totally sure that will even happen.

Just being honest, I don't think anyone expected the sales of the U to be as low as they currently are.

I don't think the gamepad has a unique game library.
