You don't buy the system because it sells well you buy it because you want to play it and think you will enjoy playing it.


Why are so many of you obsessed with the expected sales numbers or refer to them like they mean anything?

The less it sells the worse support it gets.
Just look at the WiiU.

Sales numbers don't affect your personal enjoyment, no, but they affect the future of a system.

If a niche game I like does poorly, I'm dissapointed because that means there will probably be no sequel. If it does well, there probably will be, so I'm happy.

While I hardly expect the One to do bad enough to dramatically affect it's future, it's not hard to see why people care.

I understand many people are obnoxious about it, but it does matter.

Exactly why I want it to sell well. The support.

what an idiotic pov.

It has to sell well, or else it gets no support. You buy the console for games but if it does poorly then nobody will bother to make games for it. You think this console sole crapily developers will still put money and effort in production for a console that has no base to sell it's games? Think man.

That is not the reason the WiiU doesn't get support.

EA was supporting it in the beginning. After the terrible sales EA dropped the support.
