1. First and foremost that other thread doesnt really have the final confirmed(posted on site)numbers, so you are saying its doing poorly with no proof lol. So then its not a valid statement then.

2. For the last bit, the WiiU slipping into those territories wouldnt mean anything if they all sell poorly, because they all would slip into those territories.

3. Also all of this is a guess lol, not just Ps4 and 720. People are willing to guess for a plat that has been on the market for less than two months, which we have no clue has coming in the future, why not those?


1. VGChartz numbers are never 100% accurate. But they give a rough estimate. Based on that, Wii U sales aren't good.

2. If all of them sold poorly, it would still be worth talking about. Regardless though, we have no info on how the PS4/720 will sell.

3. You don't need to guess to know that the Wii U needs to improve its sales.


Why dont you just leave my thread, if you are too afraid to guess? But lets have some fun shall we. For all of what you just said, according to what is the WiiU doing poorly? Thats your biggest flaw here, you have no proof. According to vgc its tracking better than 360 and Ps3, so now i ask you, whats your proof? Is it this weeks figures which havent been posted? Those numbers may not even be final lol, its only monday.

The Wii-U if it can manage to release either Super Smash Bros U or Mario Kart U.

Many posters here believe WiiU will sell roughly half of the Wii(about 50mil) or even less. If they believe that then they probably also believe WiiU will be in 3rd. That would suggest at some point in time nextbox and ps4 will begin outselling WiiU. My question is when that will begin happening? Will they sell more from launch day and beyond? Will it be 2014? 2015? 2016? 2017?

P.S. I cant wait to necro this thread lol. So much crow will be served.


Call me a pessimist, but I dont expect the Wii U to sell more than 50mil, and I expect it to be a close second.

As for 2014, though, I expect it to be the Wii U, because that's the year I expect Nintendo to do a price cut and release their "heavy hitters."

1. No.

2. VGChartz numbers are never proof. Are you implying that we shouldn't make statements based on VGChartz numbers?

3. The 360 and PS3 also had bad starts. Fortunately, they were able to recover primarily due to longterm support from 3rd parties. Unfortunately for Nintendo, their consoles have never received good 3rd party support. So there's reason to believe the Wii U won't have as much longterm support as the PS360, which would disable its ability to recover from a poor start.

4. Not just this weeks, but its entire life so far. Specifically recent weeks though, especially in Europe.



This is a little early I think. I know WiiU has been out for two months and I'm not making predictions about it until March when I see more about its late 2013 lineup and post-xmas steady sales. Let alone any idea what the rest of next-gen will do given I only have best guesses at price and software lineup.

I mean, if a PS4/neXtBox come out at the same price as a WiiU, then core gaming perception alone will allow them to outsell WiiU. It would require WiiU having virtually the same library and at a $100 discount to allow it to convince the average core gamer that Nintendo had the better option. Just a fact of the stereotypical (read ignorant) beliefs surrounding Nintendo.

Smash might move some systems, but it won't save the system. It couldn't manage to save the Gamecube.
Mario Kart sold well on Wii but that was mostly because of that wheel. I don't see the sequel selling anywhere near 33million.

The wheel is an interesting thing to blame Mario Kart Wii's sales on. It doesn't begin to explain Mario Kart DS's 22+ million sales, or the fact that MK7 is tracking well ahead of DS. Maybe Mario Kart sales are dependant on the hardware sales of the console, and not the other way around. But it's clear that the series has grown a lot in popularity since the GCN days, and it's not hard to imagine the Wii U iteration selling over 20 million, bundled with a harmless piece of plastic or not.
