LOL @ CNN as a reliable source for gaming news, or any news for that matter.

Junk article is junk.

Yeah Nintendo is such a failure for not outselling the PS3 and X-box 360 which have been out for 6 plus years with the WiiU that has been out for less than one.

Also correct me if I am wrong but didn't the Wii totally outsell the competition last market cycle? Also doesn't Nintendo have a huge head start on the next generation? Seeing as we know very little about the PS4 and we no almost nothing about the next X-box, but I can buy the WiiU at the store right now seems to give a bit of an advantage to Nintendo. We have to wait and see what the competitors do.

Also 3+million sold for a system that has no games seems pretty decent to me, once they get a killer app I think their sales will increase.

So basically Nintendo is a failure for getting a head start on their competition and selling 3+million units without a killer app. And Sony and Microsoft are huge successes for selling 0's upon 0's of their unreleased systems.

That said I do think Nintendo would have been better off waiting on the WiiU launch a little bit until a killer app was developed, buy I don't think releasing early really hurt them that much, and in light of their terrible Wiiu marketing strategy having it out longer may actually help them gain consumer recognition by the time killer apps start coming.

Since when is CNN in power to confirm anything gaming-related?


Hey! Remember when CNN reported that the Supreme Court struck down the ACA?

Oh wait....

Seriously, reporters. If you're so desperate to play great games, then buy a gaming system instead of making up doomsday story after doomsday story, as if that would sway Nintendo to export their games (and even if they wanted to: they can't. Not properly, at least. Because a phone is not a gaming system).

Poor Cirno News Network, what a sad state you have become.
I mean if disappointment means "is possible to become one of the best selling hardware of all time", then sure.
