When will WiiU pass PS Vita?

Forums - Sales Discussion - When will WiiU pass PS Vita?

Sinobi said that Iwata said during the retailer meeting yesterday that there are going to be less Wii U units available than what people seem to be thinking. Plus the basic set is going to take up the largest portion of what will be available, despite the premium set and MH3GHD bundle seemingly having the most demand at the moment.

Sinobi is a japanese retailer that's an informer for lots of sites, including the extinct Andriasang

This is important: define "less than people are thinking", cause I'm thining 3 mil, tops, for the holiday season.

@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 really don't think so.... we'll see.

Vita numbers were great, imo, twice the PSP's.

That's why.


WII sold 370k frist 2 days in Japan compared too Vitas 320k and early indications are WIIU launch is going to be a larger.

Last I heard WIIU pre-order have surpassed the WIIs.



"How long will it take the WiiU to pass the PS Vita?"

It hasn't yet?  Oh, then I don't know... a fortnight?



Either within the 1st month, or not for awhile. If Nintendo ships enough for first month then it can pass vita. But after the first month it is likely demand will drop, and the Wii U would need more software titles to drive sales after January. I do not believe Wii U will keep selling as well as it does the first month, it might even get down to current Xbox 360 sales or lower if their isn't enough software and marketing.



@ Farsala

Nintendo isn't even producing 1 million a month yet...



BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA so much lol in this thread!!!
