Does it make them feel better?

I can't really comment on the issue of other systems failing... I don't talk about that, because a system can't fail before anything is known about it. Indeed, I tend to try to predict the best course of action for each of the three.

I do say that Vita is failing at the moment, but that's only because it has something to compare to it - namely, the 3DS. And failing doesn't mean failed.

However, the Wii U's state isn't quite as dire as some people, such as you, suggest. Need I point out that with the exception of the Wii, all of Nintendo's recent systems have started out weakly, and then started selling much better once certain software released for it? It's true of both the DS and 3DS. What made the Wii stand out so strongly was that it had the necessary software at launch - Wii Sports, primarily. And while Nintendo Land may be a great game, it's really more of a retro-focused game than an expanded audience game, which is why it's selling well, but not driving software as much as Wii Sports did.

Dohoho, I see where this is going. First off Nintendo killed off Wii support and secondly the Wii U has only been out for a few months give it more time. After all the doom people where giving the 3DS do you honestly not expect some of the Nintendo fanbase to lash out? What comes around goes around, and I highly suggest that Sony fans to not go to crazy with the "PS4 WILL OBLITERATE THE NEXTBOX/WII U" because it can bite them in the ass later.

Sigh....Wii U passed the 3 million mark last week and will most likely pass PS Vita before March 31st. The 3DS has been in good shape for about a year now and is about to reach the 30 milion mark, and the Wii did go out with a bang. That was Zelda. It would have had other games much sooner had it not been for Nintendo of America.

The reason many others question the success for other game systems is because of Sony. When people start questioning whether there will be a PS4, that's when you know Sony has had a tough timeover the last few years. When third parties are reluctent to support a game system with the PlayStation name on it (PS Vita), you know Sony has an uphill battle. Then there's the state of Sony itself. As of last year, many started questioning wether Sony as a company will be able to survive. That's the main difference between Sony and Nintendo. People may question Nintendo's future in the games console market or dedicated handheld market, but nobody is questioning if Nintendo will still be around.

PS Vita Life Time sales = 4.1 million

PS3 first 6 month sales = 1.2 million

360 first 6 months sales = 1.4 million

 

3DS first 1 month sales = 3.6 million

Wii U sales to this date = over 3 million (well first 2 months, I believe is somewhere from 1.2 to 1.5 million at worst)

The 3DS & Wii U have NEVER been in any kind of disasterious blanch to need to recover from, to begin with.

 

And for the Record, I'm a "3D Fanboy" only, well and also "lesbian Superheroine adult film fanboy", LOL.

Maybe Nintendo fanboys just want revenge for the doom stories about Nintendo.

Well either way, I don't care just so long as I get all the mostly Japanese goodies like the PS2 and now 3DS is giving me.

 

I personally not that much of a fan of the 7th Generation of Video Games.

Just as the Wii failed, right? I mean, it's "not next gen', it's got a flashy remote control, no horse power to back it up, and a large lack of 3rd party, right?

Wii U will keep being the internet's joke until a new system does poorly. Nintendo fans want the PS4 or Xbox 17+ to fail because it means the end of Wii U doom threads.

For proof look at 3DS. Doom up until the Vita started stealing the doom. Now people have started to ignore the Vita as they move on an doom the Wii U.


next on the list of BS doom theory's is the PS4 or 720 (which ever releases first)



How can Sony fans proclaim doom on other systems with the Vita doing as it is? How can Microsoft fans talk about other systems being doomed after the Xbox 1? How can anyone doom anything by that logic?

Frankly, pronouncing doom on anything that's not clearly on its way out is a silly thing to do; people doomed the PS3 and 3DS, and look how that turned out.
