WiiU is going to be kind of like the Gamecube?

Quite honestly, the Wii took everyone by surprise. Software sales weren't too big, but it did move a lot of consoles (100+ million) and all of them were moved at a profit.

But the WiiU seems as if it'll be another gamecube.

By that, I mean it'll finish around 20-something million consoles sold.

but imo, I really do think Nintendo is going to pull the plug on it. I think if it gets to 5 years (lifespan), then it'll be around 20-30 million consoles sold.

This might have sounded ok when the xbox (a new console that was on the shelf for only 3-4 years) also sold around 25 million consoles.

But in this day and age where it seems 50+ million consoles sold is the new standard, I just don't see the WiiU making it.

So, what do you think?
