im sure japan sale would be at least 2 million by the end of the year if supply is enough...


Zero chances.

In fact, it's not going to launch as good as Vita in Japan, imo, supplied or not.



referring to dying systems as benchmarks... so evil... tss tss tss

2nd week of january



@Vic Why can't it launch better than Vita? It has 2D Mario, Nintyland, MonHun(it actually got one before the Vita), and Dragon Quest day one. The white WiiU is slightly more expensive than the Vita in Japan and Mario alone is enough of a system seller.

Day one will be enough I guess .. I heard from some website the pre orders are estimated to 1.5M, but seeing what Sony expects from their blockbusters this year "COD, ACIII" I can say mid-December to early Jan.

Because Vita had an excellent launch there. And because portable systems sell more.



@Vic Yes "usually" portable systems sell more. Definitely not going to be the case here. The 3DS will surpass the PS3 soon in Japan, while the PS3 is looking to keep its lead over Vita for a very long time. The U already has what the Vita needs desperately(MonHun) and of course Mario. The WiiUs launch is looking to be massive, especially in Japan.



I think that after a month it will be around halfway there. February or March would be my guess.



Could I trouble you for some maple syrup to go with the plate of roffles you just served up?

Depends on how much stock Nintendo has. I could see it happening by the end of March if sales are high and Vita continues selling horribly.
