I live in a decent size city(290,000)and a friend of mine works at Target and he told me they will sell 1 or 2 a week,he told me that 360's out sells they Wii U by 73/1 just at his store lol.

Wow. No ****. Sellers at my area always talk down Wii U when people ask about it. They always recommend PS3 and Xbox360 over Wii U or wait for PS4/X1.

They always say things like,

Wii U have no games
Wii U games are similar with much cheaper version on PS3 and Xbox360
Wii U power is about the same as PS3 and 360
Wii U have poor online support
Wii U going to die soon

Sounds about right.

How is quoting an article a trolling topic?

Are you new to the board, Manji? Junior detectives... they're an elite team of tween e-psychics who can interpret the intent of all posts by pressing their junk to the monitor and speaking in tongues. It's supposed to be a top-secret experiment by the government, but they escaped one day during a field trip to the circus, and have been on the loose ever since.

"How is quoting an article trolling"... BWA-HA-HA-HA!! XD Oh Majni... you're funny.

(PS - As long as the news is something they don't want to hear, yes - it is trolling. This site has ACTUALLY trained people to believe if someone posts something they didn't want to read, instead of simply not reading it, they should blame the person posting it for "encouraging an inappropriate response". That's right - people's reactions to shared news are now YOUR responsibility. God... in 10-20 years, this society is going to be f***ing laughable... way more than it is now, and that's saying something.)

everyone who posts negative things about wiiu ( true or not ) is a troll.fact.

If they don't make parenting licenses mandatory, then AT LEAST restrict internet access to triple-digit IQs. Please? =/

Wii U will certainly be fine by the time Mario Kart 8 comes out. X will have an impact for sure, but not as big as something like Mario or Smash Bros.

If it sells similarly to Xenoblade Chronicles, at this point, it would only move about 40,000 copies.

Xenoblade sold 83,000 copies in Japan during its first week.

You completely misconstrued my post. 100 million Wii units sold. Xenoblade Chronicles only sold like .83 million. That means less than 1% of Wii owners bought the game. With the Wii U sitting at only 4 million sold right now, if 1% of Wii U owners bought the game, that would only be 40,000 units sold.

According to VGChartz, as of Oct 26th, they've sold roughly 220,000 since October give or take. I calculated 227,874 between EU and NA between the week ending on October 5th to the week ending on Oct 26th. This doesn't include worldwide sales or Japanese sales either. Needless to say sales are picking up.

Gamecube is actually a nice machine with decent third party support. But Wii U.... sigh.
