WRONG!
Virtual Boy my friends
900k sold lifetime!
Itll be the 2nd worse selling though.


VB have not sold 750,000 lifetime?

Seems like nintendo has some bad karma... Or the wheel of fortune has been swaying against them... But for any time on the bottom of the wheel, it is always sure to turn.

I say their situation is due to lack of innovation and progress and gameplay, and resting on their laurels. The universe is telling nintendo to move forward with new ips and gameplay ideas, but they are too busy focusing on what was succesful before.

Yeah, it's almost safe to say that unless something magical happen. It may hit 20million though.

I actually dont think it will hit 20million.

late 2016 or early 2017 new consol release from Nintendo, they drop support for wii u.... wii u sales drop like a rock.

Releasing a new console too soon will just screw them over again. It will be underpowered again compared to next-gen consoles and thus it won't receive third party support.

The system has sold terribly but Nintendo can fall back on Amiibos and games to break even. Its a shame really, can you imagine all the money Nintendo would have made off Amiibo if the system was selling better. I just hope that they roll out NX and their next console with a better strategy and appropriate pricing.


Can u imagine Amiibo on Wii/DS back in 2008/2009? They would have sold like crazy.





I predict that the Wii U will sell a total of 18 million units in its lifetime. 

The NX will be a 900p machine

Not if they release it next year... and make Zelda available on both WiiU and new console. The PS4 and Xbox One would still be in the mid of their life cycle.

The Nintendo NX would have to retail at $299 or something to have a chance.

It won't just be the worst selling either, i think sometime from now it will be regarded as the eorst Nintendo home console overall.

For me Wii U is one the best Nintendo home consoles, so much better than Wii, and for me probably best Nintendo console after N64.

Your right until proven otherwise.

Get ready to have this thread bumped in 5 years "if" WiiU passes Gamecube.

Boy, get ready to be OWNED in 5 years! Won't you feel silly ;P


Why would he feel silly-   There is a VERY high probability that Wii U will not hit 20 million-

How much do you think the Wii U is going to sell?

IMO it will sell about 14 million during its effective lifetime (time till its replacement is released) 



Yeah, probably, unless something ridiculous happens, which is now near impossible.
