To be fair, the Wii U did pretty good at launch. If "pretty good" means being outsold by every other system except the Vita and the DS in it's first 2 months, that is.

Seriously, people don't understand how much of a gigantic failure the Wii U was.

According to NPD Wii U was doing better its first 6 months than the ps3 and 360 did in theirs

Uh... no. Not at all.

Wii U was behind PS3 by its fourth month and behind Xbox 360 by its fifth month. Not to mention just how few units it was selling each month. Wii U was only ahead for any length of time because of its launch sales. It crashed and burned afterward.
