Those numbers are bad!!!!

I also fear for next-gen. What would happen if all next-gen consoles sold WiiU numbers???


Don't worry about that, Wii U seems to be a failure and it affects other next gen consoles only positively.

I really dont think so. I think we might be seeing a lost of interest in videogames. If Sony or Microsoft (or both) can create interest in their new consoles, things might turn around. But if they dont create any interest, it may be hard times for videogames!

Well, you will see. I think Microsoft will save gaming and take over our livingrooms.

i wonder how much will it take the wiiu to bounce back up, i would say 3rd quarter.

PS3 dying quicker in US than 360 is in Europe.


360 dying quicker in US then PS3 is in Europe :P


You think? I have a feeling adjustments may correct that in the near future. 


That's assuming the PS3 isn't undertracked itself.

Absolutely.

blame it on the next gen talk


I think some of the next gen talk has taken effect a little.

and damn boy Vita and Wii U

they both need price cuts this year but it is expected


I really don't think price cuts will do much for them.   Also both consoles are sold at loss, Nintendo and Sony don't want to lose more money.

360 selling more than Wii+Wii U combined, this is awesome. :D Wii U selling less than 40k, gotta love those numbers.



How is this good? People like you disgust me.

How long until we have 6 platforms selling sub-50k?

Awful numbers for the majority.



                            

Hmm, aside from the 3DS numbers I dont like these one bit. Vita in particular. WiiU as well, though I find those Europe numbers hard to swallow.



 

Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

So what could have happened over the last few years for that to happen?...I´m not so sure that´s truly the case, we can say the economy because it´s first time the industry is caught in such rough times, there wasn´t a global crisis with the magnitude of the one that started in 2008 back in the 80s, 90s, early 2000s...  but a lack of interest in videogames?..I mean it´s definitely possible, of course, but I wouldn´t go there just yet.

People like you make me smile. :)

It is good because it is good for my console manufacturer of choice. Also it is good for me as a gamer, since I really don't care about nintendo's offerings.
