It's Nintendo, their **** prints money even if all they are is gimmicky nonsense nowadays. Not to say they don't have their positives, but for the most part any Nintendo product I buy just collects dust these days, the Wii for example.


I agree however but the Wii U is better than the original Wii.

The fact that the stores were fully stocked with them a week before Christmas makes me a bit skeptical. ;)

I actually got far more enjoyment out of my Wii than my 360, but the Wii was fairly limited in what it could do.

And seriously, this thread should not exist.

Yeah it's like you can buy it now. But beforehand they didnt have the deluxe set in stores, which everyone wants that version.

my local walmart has had the same 3 wiiu's setting in their display case for a month and a half

people literally had to sell their children's souls to get ps3's and 360's when they launched

something smells fishy here
#28grizzmoePosted 12/27/2012 7:18:14 AM
lets see how sales 3 years from now stacks up to 360s, wii at first was a hot seller too

I sincerely doubt any stores had "had the same three units for months" lol. They aren't selling fast but they're not selling THAT slow either.

I will agree however, that I don't believe that they're doing that great. Unless Nintendo produced a MASSIVE amount of these things then they weren't selling very well. Right up until Christmas I could have went out and found either a white or black one with no problem at all. Even right after launch stores had the white models all over the place and then a couple weeks after the black ones were well-stocked as well.

well, when I bought farcry 3 I said to the employee "I see you guys have some wiius in stock, that's surprising" and he said "yeah, those have been there for over a month"

so I'm just going by what he said
