Forums - Nintendo Discussion - I've accepted Wii U's sales situation

I've accepted that the Wii U wont outsell GCN,I changed my lifetime to 18M,I still think it can make 20M or maybe barely outsell GCN's 21.7M if it gets 199$ price soon. I think Nintendo after the Wii got cocky like how sony did with ps3.Plus the Wii U name was confusing and no games in it's 1st year.It had potential to at least match SNES in my opinion.But I hope they learnt from this and can do a lot better next gen,I hope they can match NES sales next gen with their Wii U's successor we know nothing about.Nintendo is a wildcard you never know what they will come up with.

So lets just enjoy the Wii U its a great console and has great games and more to come.

Yeaa, its time to accept it really. I don't see Nintendo dropping the price to $200, maybe to $250 but $200 is too low for them by the looks of it so yea, 18sh sounds good depending on how long they support it

Price cuts will tell us more of the story. They just refuse to do it! Will beinteresting to see how much price cuts eventually boost it over the years.

I find it funny how Sony has already written off the PSV based on its sales, and yet it has still sold better than Wii U.

That's like a double kick to the testes.

Selling gamepads at stores would bring sales up, and could bring the price down. By now they should be able to make a hefty cut?

Kind of shocking actually but true. But at least the vita has Japan. The Wii U has no where.

I'm starting to think it'll only reach 15~18m. O.o



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

Better late than never! I knew this before MK8 even released! xP

I have seen this since before christmas IIRC. But I live in Europe so I do not know if it is real.

Do you work at Walmart? Have you seen this?



I remember when in mid-2013 noname2200 said to me that at this time it can already be considered a victory if the Wii U beats the GC in lifetime sales. I argued that the Wii U still has many big games coming for it, plus several price cuts as opposed to the GC which had nowhere to go in regards to price pretty quickly.

Then in late November of the same year I said to noname2200 that at this time it can already be considered a victory if the Wii U reaches half of the GC's lifetime sales.

Gosh, what a piece of trash the Wii U is.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
