Two Wii U doom threads in the space of three hours. If I didn't know better, Soundwave, I'd guess you were enjoying this.

I knew when I saw the title that this was a Soundwave thread...

VGC has BO2 for WiiU at 90,000+ global (NA) for the first week; WiiU install base was 460,000+ global (NA) for the first week, giving BO2 a near 20% attach rate on WiiU.

We don't know how much it's dropped off yet in week two as that data isn't up yet, but unless the Chartz have it severely overtracked, it sold far more copies in its first week alone than the 21k you claim in the OP.


It's NPD data that Pacther said during the pre-show of the Spike Awards. Argue against it all you want, lol. 

90,000 is massively overtracked, I have the game, go online with it, there's barely anyone online though it's getting a little better the last couple of days. 



Really...?

A big multi-platform sells the least on a new (just launched) platform.

If that would surprise you, this sales website might not for you (IMO).



In the wilderness we go alone with our new knowledge and strength.

The biggest franchise on the planet selling only 20k for Wii U on opening month does surprise me a little actually.

Even COD on Wii in Nov. 2006 (Wii launch) managed 48k with roughly the same userbase. And that was a heavily downscaled port from when the franchise was only a fraction of as popular as it is today. 

I wasn't expecting sales comparable to the PS3/360 obviously, but these are very, very low.

I'm not arguing against it at all if it's indeed NPD data; I'll concede to that fact - so no need to edit your post for your signature "lol".

I should add, it really isn't surprising, but sad and frustrating at the same time from someone who likes 3rd party games.

At the launch I went to a few people were moaning about how 3rd party doesn't support NIntendo. Yet the only game they picked up with their preorder was you guessed it NSMBU and NIntendoland (packed in). As far as I could see from the 70 people who come to launch, I was the only one who didn't get mario lol. Most people who picked up a 3rd party game did get zombiu.

And this is why Third parties will never want to support the wiiU.



Nintendo has A class first party support though.

I think the numbers of ZombiU are more interesting for 3rd-party than the numbers of ports. Why should people buy new consoles, if they can play the game on the ones they already own.

The install base for PS3, Xbox360 and PC are higher. Why would anyone be surprised that multiplat titles sold less on the Wii-U?

Pachter doesn't buy your excuses!



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Well, at least it can join Playstation All-Stars Battle in the bomba line ;)
