24 WonderSwan (WS) 0.00 0.00 1.12 0.00 1.12

Before it seemed like the Wii U would be able to catch up during the holiday season, but then the recent Vita price drop changed everything i think.

Now I doubt that even Mario can change things.

What do you all think? Those of you who thought the Wii U would pass up Vita's total sales to date by January 1st 2014. Do you think the Wii U can now?

Pavolink~ I lose if SSB 3DS sells less than 200k FW in japan. We all kno i already won Very Easily though :)

At the low sales level both have, everything can change a lot in this snails race. Hard to say, but the gap seems to big.

share awesome Miiverse art / predict! / Can 3DS outsell PSP?

Bet with platformmaster918 and ethomaz about PS3 overtaking Wii in total sales.

Bet with Lawlight: How many PS3 will Sony ship over 2013. He wins if that are more than 11 million, I win if it are less.

The Wii U was never going to catch up this year.

When I start looking at sales data all sorts of ideas and questions all of a sudden pop into my head. A reason why the chartz are so great. So much information we can get here. It is great! Forget Neo borefestgaf!

 

Maybe there should be some 3DS connectivity? Even though the Wii U has a gamepad....

Playing 3DS games on the big screen would be a start.

 

Despite my OP, I think America really wants to love the Wii U. Walmart still has given it a whole section of space! That tells you something. Mean while the Vita has a foot of space left to right, and 5 inches of space top to bottom. Enough room for 3 Vita systems, and three games at my local stores. Makes me think that AMerica wants a Wii U, just do not have the motivation yet to purchase, maybe this holiday. A Black friday deal could help, but I think the Wii and DS and 3DS will have a deal as well. Finally make a final huge DS drop, and the final Wii drop. Could hurt Wii U sales.

And why exactly is that? "Never" really?

CrossBuy for legacy games (NES, SNES, GBA, DS) would be great. Buy them once in the eShop, play them on WiiU and on the 3DS.



Beyond a shadow of a doubt. I'll see your Vita's Killzone 2.9m and Borderlands 2 1.5m and raise it to the Wii U's Wind Waker HD's 4m, Donkey Kong's 5m, Wii Party's 7m, Mario & Sonic's 8m, Super Mario 3D Land's 8m+, Wii Fit's 20m. The Vita's gonna fold. Price cut or not. Especially when the Wii U is outselling it in Japan where the price cut already happened.


"Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence." - C.S. Lewis

"Anyone who tries to use the word "fanboy" as a legitimate descriptive term in any intelligent conversation needs to go back to grade school. Immature no-brain bullshit like that is why normal people look at video game players and only see acne-ridden dweebs with severe social issues." - Myself

As for the rest of it, did you even read my other post to you in the other thread?

Is there even any point comparing the wii U and the Vita?

The vita isnt doing great but I think the wii U is doing worse.
I cant see MH4 selling as many Wii U's as opposed to 3DS.
