What can Sony learn from Wii U launch failure for PS4?

How was the Wii U launch a failue? Didn't it sell exceedingly well?



Just in comparison, my local Walmart has had 6 Wii U systems on the shelf since this past weekend. My local Target, Best Buy, and Gametops all have them in stock.

When the Wii originally came out, you couldn't find them anywhere for months.

So, at least in my area, I'd so no, they haven't been selling well.


It's like this around here as well. Nobody cares about it. Of all my gamer friends only 1 has it. We've played it but it's a lot of the same casual market crap. And the controller isn't comfortable at all.

It's cool for a few hours but gets old fast.

I'm not saying I will never own one, but I just don't seem interested in the Wii U at all. I already have a PS3 and 360, from what I've seen the U isnt that much of an improvement.

The buzz for the U is nowhere near that of the original Wii. That's the truth.

The Wii U sold 400,000 units.

That doesn't sound like a launch failure to me.
