How many Wii U's do you guys think will sell this week? I bet that people will be buying a Wii U to play this game (again).

Maybe double what the previous week sold, so still less than the Playstation Vita.

Personally, I think EB will move about 100k consoles this week.

Pikmin may sell 5,000 or so.

Wii U sales last week: 26,801
Vita sales last week: 42,713

26,801 * 2 = 53,602
53,602 > 42,713

Math! =D

That said, I don't expect this to move many systems. A copy of the original is still cheaper than a Wii U and the download...though only slightly.

Not if you don't have a SNES. A SNES+a copy of EB costs moar than a Wii U+a digital copy of EB.

I can't give an exact number, but I'm sure it definitely helps.

I didn't even know it was coming out today until I came on here, so that's probably not a good sign for awareness.
So if Nintendo changed the name of the Wii - U, would they be pulling a U-Wii?
