Is the Wii U doing better or worse than the N64 or Gamecube did?

I'm kinda starting to get worried by a lot of the doom and gloom topics here and I remember what happened 2 gens ago with the Gamecube and how it really took a nosedive in sales and how it started strong but I was like the only person that owned one that I knew and it didn't get like ANY 3rd party support for equal titles that were on Xbox or PS2 and how just 3 years into its life there wer like no good games except for the rare Nintendo ones that still came out for it.

I really don't want that to happen again and it seems Nintendo tried to emulate the once in a lifetime Wii sales again but thats not happening.

So what is you guys opinions on this matter?

well that I personally knew yes.

I mean none of my friends owned a gamecube they all had ps2 or xbox.
and right now I haven't met a single gamer that is my friend that owns a wii u they are all getting ps4 or xbone and either already have a 360 or ps3.

Didn't the N64 sell over 60 million? Wii U won't do close to half of that.

Hey at least Wii U is doing better than the Virtual Boy, right? ;)

Somewhere between 29 and 34 million.
