No but it will pass the Xbox360 based on its launch numbers.


I doubt next gen will last seven years like this gen. Wii U will most likely do 40 M within a five year period.

Just to remind you, PSVIta outsold WiiU by 20K in Europe this week.

Why did you bring that up?

Sorry, just realized it was not the point. I've edited.



At the moment I would say No. SW is lagging behind big time in the EU. COD sold like around 350 copies last week in the UK for example.

But things can certainly change. With systems like ps3 we have seen big turn arounds. Coming E3 is key I think

tie ratios are surprisingly close from console to console. so what you are really asking is; will wiiU be able to match the wii in hardware sales?

That all depends on how well Sony launches. They know what they need to do. Lets hope they dont become out of touch.



Bring on the games. If you have the games it will sell! All about the games.

Cuz we are sick and tired of Vita DOOMED crap



It depends on whether downloads are tracked. On my WiiU I have 5 download titles and only 3 physical titles, the only reason I have three physical titles is that one was bundled with the system (Nintendoland) one came cheaper with an accessory, and COD is not available as a download. Everything else, ZombieU, ACIII, etc... all came down the digital pipe.

I only bought a few games over several years as downloads for the wii vs the 40+ physical games.

Plus this time I will probably also get a Steam Box to go with the WiiU which will mean a few less games that I will buy for the WiiU.

I suspect that the 0.8 x wii sales may be a long term trend.
