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

 

Thoughts?

No chance. The Wii U will... 415 53.34%
 
I agree, the Wii U will s... 363 46.66%
 
Total:778

I find it unlikely. Nintendo isnt Sony, if sales are too slow they will drop the price and a 3D mario and the world gets reversed.

They have the necessary money in the bank to make it happen.

I'm on my Wii U so I can elaborate as much as I want. However, it is suffice to say that you are wrong and your prediction sucks. Nice try at a Gilgamesh prediction.



I don't think it will surpass 10 million, but heck I'd say definately over 7 million. Once Nintendo launches their better games and after E3 2013. I think the console should pick up some sales.



You are crazy. That is a just wrong prediction, whether joking or not. Without doing any maths i say 12m.



DON'T WIN ME CHIBI BUDDY DON'T WIN ME.

ANIMAL CROSSING NEW LEAF FRIEND CODE:- 5129 1175 1029. MESSAGE ME.
ANDY MURRAY:- GRAND SLAM WINNER!

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

It's going to top 10M in CY 2013. Wii U should have atleast one AAA title to boost the sales before the end of march; Wii Fit U.



Ei Kiinasti.

Eikä Japanisti.

Vaan pannaan jalalla koreasti.

 

Nintendo games sell only on Nintendo system.

You're not allowed to revise this prediction once the lineup is unveiled, MBP.



For comparision sake:
Wii 2007 - 16,553,289

Wii U going let's say 6,999,999 will means a 58% drop from Wii second's year.

It depends. If the first few months with 2013 are littered with announcements for new iphones/samsung phones/next box etc there is a chance that the wiiu could sell less then 7m. A slim chance though as it's already hit 2m. I estimate that the life sales of the WiiU will put it somewhere inbetween the GC and N64, as long as 2013/2014 sees another console release and a continued popularity in iPhone/Nexus/etc products.

Will that boost sales? I can't see people feeling the need to upgrade wii fit to wii u fit. It's not like you bought Wii Fit for the graphics, so why upgrade? This is the major downside nintendo never considered when they focused on the casual audience; getting them to upgrade when you are no longer the "in" gadget is incredibly difficult.

I actually don't think those things will matter very much.  The people that want a Wii U are not going to suddenly decide not to get one just because some new phone (with the tiniest increase in something new over the last phone ) was announced.

New console announcements....maybe.   But largely it seems that consoles sales tend to be not be deterred too much by competitor consoles these days.   All 3 last gen consoles over 70 million.
