a 300-350 dollar price tag with barely any killer apps VS a 7 year old system with a reduced price for blk friday plus a huge library of (third party) games.

WHO CARES???

750K dummies who dont realize the PS3/Wii/WiiU has free online and that you'll have to buy a separate hard drive just to play Halo online.


Wii online is so bad I wouldn't even consider it an online...

and who bought a hard drive to play Halo? Why wouldn't you just use a flash drive?


I read somewhere that it has to be a hard drive. I may be wrong. lemme look it up

Wait, we are going to factor in price? When the Wii was outselling the PS3 and 360, where were people saying that it was because of it's price? Flip flop Nintendo fanboys, flip flop

Since Halo 4's multiplayer is pretty damn big and not only that but you are better off getting a bigger HDD then the 4 gig (Since it was the Black Friday model) as you'll end up filling the 4 gigs up and more so the flash drive.

lets do some simple math here:

looking at some black friday xbox deals there were 3 different price points:

199
149
249

if you add them and average them you get 199




199x750k = $149,250,000




the wii u comes in 2 price points

300
350

if you average them out you get 315

315x400k $126,000,000

so even at double the sales microsoft only made 23 million dollars more than nintendo.

not that impressive really. especially since if you add in wii/ds/3ds sales nintendo would have made more money.

Lol when nintendo fanboys can no longer play the sales card, the play the profit card.


Actually, nintendo pushed out more than 1 million consoles last week during black friday.

Linetrix. Phaseblack. Icecreamface, whatever your name is. Kirby...

You guys are beyond ridiculous. Why can't people just enjoy the console and the board for said console without you gremlins trying to trash the party?

Who. Cares. About. Sales!? Nintendo does. Microsoft does. Sony does. Let them worry about it...unless you are just trying to start, yet another, argument. I wouldn't put it past you guys for a second.

This this **** go and go back to doing whatever it is you do...unless this IS what you do. If it is...I feel bad for you guys; that all you do is try to grief a Wii U board.

But hey, "it's facts" to you guys. So it's justified, correct? /facepalm If so, then you're just being straight up ***hats. If you're not...let the **** drop already for god sake.

/takes a vaction

Hopefully this board cleans up in the next few months. What's next? Nintendo is doomed because they buy fruit of the loom tighty whities? The true budget plan my friends! It's a sign!

Pretty sure there were people saying that as when all three started out the Wii was by far the cheaper console, then the 360 at $500 and PS3 at $600. Hype might have also had a lot to do with it.

But the fact of the matter is comparing a 1 week system to a 7 year system is still really stupid.

At the same time the Wii U sold more than the Xbox 360, PS3, DS, 3DS and Vita did in their first week though. I think that is what is more important here, especially considering that the Wii U isn't sold at a loss (or at least, they break even once someone buys just one game, which quite frankly will pretty much always happen when someone purchases a console).

I don't mean that in a way to bash any of the above consoles though. I'm just saying that the Wii U isn't doing all that badly and seems at the very least ready to compete in the current market.
Please excuse me for my poor English.
Thank you.
