Prediction: Wii U will sell under 40 million units

Forums - Sales Discussion - Prediction: Wii U will sell under 40 million units

I started a thread on unikgamer.com back in 2012. It was all about how the 3DS would wind up crushing the Vita. The list of arguments people put up for the Vita were just bad.

1. The Vita has better graphics!

2. The Vita has more games, because it has ports, emulation, and PS1 classics!

3. The Vita is getting Monster Hunter!

4. The Vita has a bigger screen!





The sentence below is false.

I think it will sell about 14 million.

Ouch. That one must have hurt.



I always assumed that WiiU would do better than the gamecube. But, I never expect Nintendo to struggle to produce game has much has they did.

The system actually got off to a decent start. But, Nintendo was clearly not ready for the move to HD. It became clear by year 2 that Nintendo was struggling with making HD games, games development took way too long and there was no more 3rd party support for the WiiU.

Nintendo first party games became mediocre and they weren't able to make top quality games to save the system.

It nice to know that Nintendo still has what it take to make a killer app (Zelda: Breath of the wild). But, WiiU wasn't worth saving, The Nintendo switch will still struggle to gather support but with Nintendo making easier at least from hardware point of view... we can expect more indie support on Switch.

R.I.P. WiiU

This thread is kinda painful. :/

So many hopes... People expecting as much as 80million units! I regret I have not predicted anything, I would be probably wrong as well.



We need to track the switch one with the same care, and bounce it back in a couple of years. That will be fun

Oh yeah, I remember that. Turkish edited that post years later.
