50% lower than the software sales for the GameCube? 0_o

I was under the impression that the Wii U was doing pretty well, but if this is true, then I'm worried this console is going to outright die...
Mario vs. Donkey Kong is a hideously underrated game.

Let me put the final nail in the Wii U's coffin.

OUCH! Oh no! my thumb it's doomed!

Kinda hard to sell games when there are none worth buying.

I actually tried Rayman today, it's bad too. Ruuined by the gimmick stuff.

You can judge something's success by the amount of critics and haters it gathers...by that standard alone the Wii U is the most successful console ever! ( there must not be anything fun to play on 360 or ps3 since they have so much time to troll)

It doesn't make any sense that the WII U could sell almost 3 million units in less than two months, yet no ones buying the games. The article even says that the Wii U has generated more revenue than the Wii, despite not selling as much AND selling at a loss. There's some missing link here.

Do these numbers track digital sales? I want the full story before jumping to any conclusions.

I don't think so. Hard to say how much that would skew the numbers.
