Forums - Sales Discussion - 360, Wii, and 3DS to dominate this holiday season! Black Friday eye witness report~

Where is the PS3 and Wii U? After a long Black Friday I noticed one thing. Those two were not selling, and the 360, 3DS, and Wii booths were in shambles! Both the wii and the 360 had close to a dozen open spaces on the shelves.

Lets not forget the killer 360 sales at Target and Walmarts price match of it. Then we had the Wii that was 10 dollars cheaper than a DSXL.

Black OPS 2 360, Just Dance 4 Wii, Some hip hop experience game for the wii, MW3 wii, and many other games were gone!

Sadly, even for 10 dollars a pop, the Wii u-Draw tablet with studio game was still not wanted by anyone. So I got my copy for cheap! Skylanders was huge yet again as well.

The DS should have a decent season as well. The system is cheap and quite a few games were bought for it as well.

 

So you do not think I am biased I will mention the Vita. I did not find one copy of any game for the handheld around the store left anywhere. We had two systems that someone tried to rip apart and steal, but I am guessing the cops got to them in the bathroom or fitting room or wherever they tried to tear it apart because they were still in the boxes in claims. There were also a good amount of PS3 games picked up as well, just not on the Wii and 360 level. By the end of the day/night the PS3 finally sold out as well.

Other games that sold well? Just look at the same games that Nintendo has been selling for 7 years on the DS and Wii. They were gone!



 Bananaking was right, I was wrong. Like he always is. About the 3DS not selling at least 19.999 million in 2013...

What is wonderbook?

 

A couple days ago I got a couple to buy the Wii U instead of the infamous 2 PS3 bundle. Last night only 1 Wii U was bought!

Got a retro room? Post it here!

Spurge, what do you think accounts for low interest at your store for PS3 and Wii U? I'm surprised because of that awesome PS3 bundle that just came out, and because Wii U is the sexy new holiday gift.

P.S. Good for you for working the Black Friday shift. That's not an easy job with all the crazies out in force :P

I am sorry, but not at my store. Handhelds were not that popular in general besides DS games and the DS. Probably just consumers going after the good deals. Other systems will be picked up later on. Even the 3DS was not super big. We pushed out a lot of Wii and DSXL's though!

I love going out on Black Friday, so this was no problem. Makes you feel good inside when you help that customer find that one item that has been bought up for hours but you find it on some random car oil shelf.

 

The Wii U was horribly advertised at My walmart. I almost go someone to buy a Just Dance 4 Wii U copy! Just to see if they knew the difference. It took their daughter to tell me that it was for something else. She did not know what, but it was not Just Dance 4 Wii edition.

No need to apologize lol. 

Hard to sell when you have DS for under $100.

Why should people go out on Black Friday and buy a Wii U? There are no Wii U BF-deals anywhere. So if you want a Wii U and are sane you would not got out on Black Friday to buy one when histerical people wants to get the deals.
