you do realize the wii u, unlike 3ds, has big software releasing right after the pricecut, right? so how exactly do you expect sales to drop week after week after the pricecut?

what do you mean by thought (past form)? surely the wii u can hit 10M by years and, there's a probability that it won't but i think the higher chance is that it will.

Assuming that you mean the fiscal year, and not the end of 2013, the system would almost have to sell more units each week from now until the end of March than it has for the last three months combined, on average.

That strikes me as...very unlikely. That would give even the Wii a run for its money...

He means years end. As in December 31st it will have 10mil sales to customers

Either way, the system would have to pretty much outsell the original Wii...which doesn't strike me as likely.

Slightly under, actually, for the US alone.

What I wouldn't mind 60k+ what it will probably sell 35k

The numbers should reflect in next weeks chart.



It's not surprising, it's being touted as a price cut but if it is it's the weakest in history. (Not in terms of how many units it shifts, that's yet to be seen) But the baseline is still the same and it was less than 15% off the original. They've added more value tho which I think in itself is more important.

At the end of the day the games are what are going to shift WiiU this holiday, don't think this change in sku/price is going to contribute to sales at all.

Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101, Splinter Cell Blacklist and Zelda: WWHD are games though (last I checked). Pretty good ones at that. 

Nintendo needs to advertise, for a 9 month-ish old system, there is now a decent number of games and even exclusive ones to play.

I didn't say at what level they would sell the console, regardless, the games coming this fall will obviously have more impact than those.



 

Nintendo is WAY overestimating the popularity of Wind Waker.. The Price drop may give a slight boost, but it'll have far more to do with the actual price drop, and little to do with the fact that WW is bundled with it.
