Please don't tell me the trolls are gonna try to use the Vita selling more in a full week than the Wii U sold in 2 days as a way to paint the Wii U as a flop.

Who am I kidding? Of course they are, cause they think we're stupid.

It's true. They sold 18 Wii Us here in the United Kingdom over the first 3 days on sale. 6 of those were returned (4 bricked whilst updating, 2 had the A button falling off problem). The other 12 are being kept although their owners are disappointed in the slow CPU which makes the menu abysmal and means that they have to use the new Wii U Fitness Pedal accessory and pedal really hard to give the console the power boost it needs in order to run any games at more than 8fps.

I heard the vita was being bundled with loaves of bread to get them to sell and customers still bought the non-bundled bread even though it was twice the price.


Lol!!

No, an American would more likely be eating fast food and binge drinking. There's a higher percentage of smokers in Britain than in America and we're obviously the fatter country.
