Wii U will outsell PS4 or 720 by 40 million units. Prove me wrong.

Love that pic of Yuga, did you do that on your own?

Heh, no way. I can hardly draw a good looking picture of a cat.

Ouch, waaay off base :P gonna be a 60m+ gap in PS4 favour!

Indeed. Truly this was not my best prediction I've ever made. 

Unfortunately (as I'm sure you'd agree with) it's also not my worse.

It's cool, I don't think many predicted the WiiU to do as badly as it is.

not even people who dont like Nintendo thought it would do this badly. Hasnt even passed Vita yet

I think you would have been banned if you predicted the Wii U sales correctly...

The bolded part above has me laughing so hard I'm crying!  I liked ZombiU, but compared to Killzone SF or Ryse, it looks like last gen.  The PS3 could have ran ZombiU and it probably would have looked even better.

There was so much optimism on the Wii's successor, and even though I like the Wii and Wii U, those who said the motion controls of the Wii were a fad have been proved right.  Nintendo still has a lot of great first party games, but the majority of the Wii's sales weren't by people who really like to play video games all the time, hence all the youtube videos of older people flinging their Wiimotes into walls and TV's.  Selling to the majority casual crowd was a good business decision in the 7th Gen, but the Wii U gamepad function just isn't hitting with the casual gimick loving crowd.

Gamers are voting with their wallets, PS4 is the choice right now.

since when is zombi U a nintendo first party? and no ps4 xone exclusive really look better than mk8, so it was kinda true.

bolded: when? answer: never, motion controls were great and still deliver the definitive controls for certain genres, including fps.

Oh my. Don't ever change Zero.

I admire your steadfastness if that's a word.

Wii U the 'new' PS2 confirmed.

LOL welcome to the future!

It's amazing how people can be so wrong, lol

I predicted the original wii was going to be a big flop despite being a huge fan of their earlier consoles. I couldn't see why people would pay serious money for a gamecube with a new controller.

In fact from memory my predictions for various consoles were;

PS1: successful
Saturn: unsuccessful
N64 unsuccessful
Dreamcast: unsuccessful
PS2: Successful (despite not being a fan of it)
Gamecube: Successful
Original Xbox: Successful
Xbox 360: Successful
PS3: Successful
wii: unsuccessful
wii u: successful
PS4: successful
xbox one: unsuccessful

In hindsight I think my views are skewed slightly towards favouring powerful hardware as likely to be successful.

Indeed, the relative awfulness of the sales really caught everyone off-guard; this thread is proof of that.


Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

Meh, I don´t blame him, pretty much everything I ever thought in my life was proved wrong with time =/

My grammar errors are justified by the fact that I am a brazilian living in Brazil. I am also very stupid.

This is what I would like to happen but don't forsee it. Easily will destroy Microsoft. Once Smash Bros and Mario Kat 8 come out, Nintendo owns America. When X and Shine Megami X Fire Emblem, they own Japan. Now maybe Bayonetta 2 will do the trick in Europe?








I win if Bayonetta 2 does wonders for Wii U in Europe. They seem to like their games violent.

Thanks for all the great memories!
