Forums - Sales Discussion - Prediction: Wii U will sell under 7m in 2013



No chance. The Wii U will... 415 53.34%
I agree, the Wii U will s... 363 46.66%

I'm calling it now bitches!

I'm on my phone so I can't really write alot to elaborate right now, but if you have any questions, fire away!

I'll bump this thread at various intervals throughout 2013 showing a chart of the Wii U's progress towards my prediction. In the meantime, tell me I'm crazy!

At this stage it looks plausible to do just that.

Only Nintendo can turn it around with surprises and marketing.



you're crazy. and i hope it sells 7000001 units just to spite you :D

I agree. I don't think any games will be forthcoming.

I just looked at the 360's first full year; it sold roughly 6 million (it was a real quick look, so I might be wrong), so I think it's quite safe to say the Wii U will sell more than 7m based it's initial sales relative to 360's. I say it'll sell closer to 10m copies in 2013 - but this is of course without knowing what MS and Sony will bring to the party...

EDIR: And oh - you're crazy!!

I'm on Twitter @DanneSandin!

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.

I don't see it somehow, but stranger things have happened...


Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

Good, risky call imo. I say it'll be between 6 and 8 million!

Game of the year 2017 so far:

5. Resident Evil VII
4. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
3. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy
2. Horizon Zero Dawn
1. Super Mario Odyssey

Anything is possible.

You've got courage MBP.

iPhone = Great gaming device. Don't agree? Who cares, because you're wrong.

Currently playing:

Final Fantasy VI (iOS), Final Fantasy: Record Keeper (iOS) & Dragon Quest V (iOS)     


Got a retro room? Post it here!

You're crazy.

The rEVOLution is not being televised

The XBox 360 had a worse launch, had serious supply issues for the first part of 2006, was facing a massive PR problem with the RROD, and still sold 6.8 Million units in 2006 ... The PS3 had a worse launch, an insanely high price and strong competition still sold 7.8 Million units in 2007

IMO the most realistic sales range for the Wii U in 2013 is 8-12 million units; and I think it is far more likely that it would pass 12 million than fall short of 8 million
