This is odd...

I saw the thread title and started to laugh. Once I realized it was my old prediction, I was like "oh"

In all fairness, this prediction was before anything was known about the systems. I've always made crazy stupid predictions before I should because that's what makes them entertaining.

I have learned a lot this year as a person overall and "system wars" are not only completely pointless but dumb as well.

Besides that, I now realize why the Wii sold so well and why Wii U is struggling. I think their own HH market is hurting it.

Anyway, I don't post much anymore but decided to post for all of you wanting to get my take on the thread. Well, here you go :)

At least you were brave enough to make a prediction like this.

Lets all come back to this thread in 2 weeks.

The Wii U is off to a slow start in Europe but this will improve in time. Once the big games start coming, so will the sales. This will be close between all 3 and there will be no clear winner in Europe.

In the U.S, I see it being a battle between Wii U & 720. The Wii U will sell slightly better IMO with the 720 in a very close 2nd. Sony is losing presence in the U.S.

 

 

LOL PS4 crushed Wii U sales within hours in Europe and probably passed it in NA by now as well. Should probably post this thread in the dictionary next to the word "fail".

You're an artist!!!

At least you realize this and for that you deserve some credit. A handful religious Nintendo fans, 2 of them especially, on this website still belive in this prediction!!!!!!

Sounds like a good Fred idea..



Wii U's not going to have Tomb Raider the Definitive Version or Grand Theft Auto V The Definitive Version ( which will be announced in the near future ) or Titanfall Game of the Year Edition ( if it warrants one which will be coming to Playstation 4 just like Bioshock did in the 7th Gen ) or Grand Theft Auto VI and many other third party games which will be coming to PS4 but not to Wii U.

Now it's true that people still love Nintendo's franchises but with each release in the same old series people just get a little more tired of them while new franchises ( ie. developed on the other consoles within the past few years continue to grow in popularity ) while Nintendo hasn't come up with a new core franchise in decades and the casuals aren't going to buy their casual games in the same numbers that they did on the Wii.

To make a long story short, with some hefty price cuts and by appealing to the kiddy demographic, Nintendo could pull it off, but I hope they don't.

I like how u say Nintendo releases the same old series while 2/3 of ur examples for other consoles belong to 15-20 year old franchises and are updated ports lol

"Uncharted," "God of War," and "The Last of Us" on PS4 and even "Halo" on Xbox aren't 15 to 20 years old.  Mario, Donkey Kong, Zelda, Samus, Mega Man, they were all around before I could drive a car and that was a long time ago.  Where's Nintendo's hard core adventurer hanging out with ladies with fine asses like Nathan Drake, or their Kratos with all of his violent and bloody struggles and hot sexual encounters?
