Haha sure and it's going to outperform the PS4 right after it, face it even most opportunist are thinking that the Wii U will not outsell GCN, or not by much anyway.
you never can be sure 100%. Sometimes its just 1 hype or 1 game that can change everything. Remember the gameboy? Bad sales, but then boom pokemon arrived.
Pokemon has done its part, but it wasn't the only reason for the better GameBoy sales.
The GameBoy Pocket was a lot less clunky and heavy (the handheld got more portable) and didn't drain the batteries as fast. And in 1998 followed the GameBoy Color, which was the first model that interested me. The addition of colors was a huge graphical leap.
