Seems we have to bring back the chalkboard for the wii U.  Have to house these Wii U excuses somewhere:


Just FYI, they made it bannable to post that chalk board here again (even though it wasn't bannable for the years it was actually semi-relevant).

Does anyone know if these numbers are using the data from December NPD? Seem a bit high.

Thats fine, it servered its purpose back in the PS3 days, its revelant here.  Me being banned doesnt change that.

is this normal for the PS3 to be that much higher than 360 at this point of the year?


I think last week PS3 was about 180k higher than the 360 globally....



well, could be adjusted later when MS and Sony give their quarterly reports though

 

is the Wii U sales on schedule for Nintendo, I mean is that number what's expected by Nintendo?

high software sales in Germany was indeed a true indication. I bet there wouldn't be much change after the adjustments are up.

Ethomaz was pretty much warned by Khan last night because he posted a WiiU related .gif from GAF, claiming it was unnecessary and not to do it again.

Sadly I expect the same to happen with this.

For standing by your principles, that's pretty sweet, hopefully you don't get banned :)

*High-Five*

Good man!! If the BulletBill crashing into the city .gif can be posted when Vita gets outsold big time in Japan by 3DS around these parts then so can this, as well Pirates of the Caribbean cannonball .gif.

 

 

Keep fighting the good fight everyone.

It harmless stuff really, I mean the figures will ultimately prove anyones statements true or false... dont think there is any need to ban people unless they are posting the same thing repeatedly.

If a site wants to get its self taken seriously, then first it needs to let people have an opinion (even if others thinks it is wrong as ultimately the figures will say who is right and wrong), and second they need to be more active banning/deleting the "penis size/Girlfriend has dumped me" teenage type posts.



Wii U in Europe is doing really bad. It really doesn`t help being the most expensive console right now in Europe.
But above all, it really needs some good games. Don`t think any game besides Rayman and Lego City will help. Pikmin 3 shouldn`t have been delayed.

I'm not feeling those PS3 Europe numbers to be accurate somehow...

Also, the PSP number is 100% worng. My rudimentary addition would mean the PSP sold 40k in Rest Of World this week.

 

Finally, heavy drop all around, expect the WiiU to stabilise around 115k-ish with the 360 at 120k and PS3 at 140k (on average). 3DS is beasting.


Sounds about right. But with the likely announcement of new consoles sometime in Q2, the aging HD twins will likely suffer drops beyond normal saturation. Wii U could also very well drop well below 115k for many weeks, especially if Japan slows down and Americas and Europe continue to ignore it (Europe in particular could screw the weekly numbers). All in all, I stand by my 4 million sold and 4.5 million shipped by the end of March (Wii U, of course), which will be 1 million below the official forecast and 1 million+ below the desired sellthrough estimates. If the numbers falls significantly below these, they will have to take immediate and drastic action.
