Worst week of the year has arrived again. Always gigantic drops after the holidays are over


Why did you stop making topics about Media Create in NGG? WiiU...?

The PS3 sold 22000 so wiiU's 20000 isn't so bad. Yes I'm sure everyone would like it to do better, but it's not doing bad at all.


Not sure if serious...
My Predictions as of September 2012:
Vita will be discontinued in 2013 - Wii U will struggle after launch, PS4 will NOT launch in 2013

If I remember correctly PS3 was out of stock for longer periods. Wii U had no problems stocking up.


And the PS3 was $600 dollars. Poor Wii U, first Europe, now Japan...

Very true. Being vastly cheaper and having a much larger availability one would think that nintendo would have been able to sell a lot more units.

Just for reference, this Wii U number is lower than the PS3 did it's first January during these same weeks (Jan 2007), so the Wii U is starting to develop a disturbing trend of posting sub-PS3 numbers when it was that ridiculous launch price still in 2006/07.

Lower first December than the PS3 in North America too in NPD. That's not a good sign.

Wii of course was still hot selling 90k+ this week in 2007 in Japan.

you might think wii U's numbers is good because it is close with the PS3, but remember, the PS3 has been out for 7 whole years, it's oversaturated already whereas wii U is on greener pasture.

"Wii U is being sold at a loss, Nintendo isn't going to lower the price anytime soon. " I can't wait to see them
defend the price cut that IS going to happen soon.

Either way, it's still a new console. There's no excuse for such low numbers.

I dont think Dragon Quest will make a big impact. It sold about 450,000 copies on Wii which has an install base of how many millions? Now Wii U gets the HD port but all the hardcore DQ fans have probably played it to death on the Wii. I doubt many people will buy a system just for the game. Monster Hunter HD isn't doing much software or hardware wise.
