Wii-U has SOLD 6.17 million consoles. How long until XBOX ONE does the same?

also for those who claim "wii is dead" i beg your pardon...but your wrong

now im not gonna claim this with absolute certainty but i will use past experience thaat actually happened with Nintendo:

the WiiU is currently in a slump...guess what also was in a slump for a while? Wii...guess what turned into a machine that you put discs in and it prints hard cash out for Nintendo on theo ther end? Wii

if you think a slump like this is the end of Nintendo or the Wii console line, i suggest you learn your place


Nintendo for one, isnt stupid...they know if somethin doesnt work they have to fix it...i suspect much like the Wii, this slump is only temporary...the Wii of course became literally the most sold console of all time...actually topping the original NES/Nintendo eventually...yet it had a big slump that lasted around a year if not a bit more too...so why do you people think that a slump is going to ruin nintendo?

Nintendo is the big cheese of gaming...the boss...while they werent the first company to produce consoles they were the first one that was truly successful...and theyve applied these decades of experience in the gaming industry

one rather unintelligent person tried to tell me the WiiU is "the new VirtualBoy"...yet that couldnt be farther from the truth...the WiiU is still selling even if sales are in a most likely temporary decline...virtual boy literally flat out died and stopped selling not long after release and had all of 14 or so games mostly launch titles..

the WiiU may be in a slump...but i can almost guarantee that its temporary just like its predecessor the Wii...besides...we got 2 great titles coming to WiiU htis year...Mario Kaart 8 very soon and Smash Bros later this year...both gamess quite deserving of all the hype and guaranteed to sell well due to their respective fanbases being quite large


Suggesting each successive generation will follow the same path as the previous one is laughable at best.

And I literally cannot stop laughing at the second bolded section. Two games?!

True and (sadly) true :'(

Despite launching one year earlier and the whole Xbox One situation, Nintendo still managed to screw up the Wii U.

I'm not getting a Wii U just to play Mario Kart this time.

Aside from the ones I listed (MH3U, Rayman, Wind Waker) are there more that I don't know of? Honest question


?


Answer is none I also heard mh3 was upscaled and not native but I'm not sure


NSMB U
Mario Kart 8
Bayonetta 2

Took less than 10 seconds. What's wrong? Couldn't get Xbox to bing it for you?


NSMBU and MK8 are both 720p upscaled to 1080p, not native, and there's no info released about Bayo 2 yet. I posted this from my Wii U btw.

IF Microsoft can impress at E3, it'll probably be by November or slightly earlier.

If they turn it into a giant mess again, it'll be somewhere in 2015.


Slightly off-topic, but I read somewhere that Nintendo recently did a $100 million investment into some unknown technology, so I don't think the WiiU is completely out of it just yet.

I bought a Wii U a few months back and I loved the games I played, WW was beautiful, it just doesn't have enough. Very possible that's just me, but it looks bare on the horizon, hope Nintendo figures it out.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the only time the Wii was in a slump was about 1-3 years before the Wii U was announced. Also, I'm pretty sure it had a much better first year than the Wii U did.

Only an idiot would regularly post on a board that is dedicated to a console that they don't plan on owning.
