Prediction: Wii U will sell under 40 million units

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

Unfortuantly for those of you disagreeing with me I have a rediculous accuracy when it comes to these things mostly to do with the fact that I see real numbers every day and dont carry any personal feeling into numbers.

And anyone saying 40 million or less are very wrong. Casuals are the ones doing much of the current pre-orders

I actually had 8 giant bullet-points typed out to explain my prediction, but for some reason the page re-loaded and the text disappeared. I'm not gonna type it again damn it!!

Anyway, I'll bump this thread in 10 years.

In the meantime..do you agree? do you disagree? If you have any questions, fire away.

 

Hmm....

    Yeah... I say you're not really serious and just making this for fun and/or gamrpoints.

    Don't get me mistaken. I think the prediction is absurd too. I think it'll sell way more than that. But using pre-orders as a basis for that is flawed imo



    It'll definitely sell more than 40 million consoles.

    IF PS4 and 720 arrive at similar price points the WiiU will drop off. core gamers will likly choose PS4 and 720, you can quote me this next year. WiiU is actually lanching more expensive than the orig 360. it doesnt have the family friendly price tag as Wii did so il go with 40 - 50 million

    Wut?!?  360 launch prices...

    $299 "Core" model, no HDD, 256 MB mem card, composite cables only.

    $399 "Pro" Model, 20GB HDD, Component cable.  No games bundled for either SKU.

    Wii U Launch prices...

    $299 Standard Edition... 8GB flash memory infinitely expandable w/ any USB HDD, HDMI Cable, Controller AC adapter.

    $349 Premium Edition... 32GB flash memory infinitely expandable w/ any USB HDD, HDMI Cable, Nintendo Land, console stand and charging cradle for controller.

    The Wii U is launching at the same exact price as the "family friendly" PS2 did way back in 2000... nearly $400 when adjusted for inflation.

    You know I was always wondering why no one ever used the dollar sign for $ony, but then I realized they have no money so it would be pointless.

    Ughh...I gave an explanation in my last prediction thread, so I don't see why you think I wouldn't have done one for this thread.

    And yes, I'm being cereal. Why does no-one on this site take me cereal?!

    I work retail and no exactly how insane pre-orders are right now.

    And I assure you that you couldnt be more wrong

    Ben, is that "insane"? or just insane?

    wow...one thread. If I wanted to, I bet I could find ten outrageous threads of yours without an explanation.
