Insane! I had it pegged for 550k worldwide since the Wii U has about 1/4 the installed base of the Wii at the time launch. Just shows how starved Wii U owners are for 1st party goodness! Mighty impressive, can't wait to see the hardware numbers!

It doesn't show that "Wii U owners are starved", the launch was normal (if not very good) for the franchise. And making a prediction solely on installed base proportion while ignoring the other factors isn't the best way to predict stuff.

You'll forgive me if I don't accept lessons in predictions from you, I don't think we should compare our track record overall.

Well, I'd say there's a better chance that early adopters for a console will also be early adopters for a highly anticipated game identified strongly with that console's brand. It's why something like Halo 5 if released this week would still have amazing opening sales despite the sub 5 million userbase.Everyone's always starving for great console defining games they've waited months for.

Maybe you'll avoid such underestimation in the future!
