prediction: kowenicki and ethomaz go at it again and the rest of the site leaves the thread in boredom.

You are the great prophecizing oracle.  I bow down to you.

It's not a prophecy if you simply report a fact....

This NPD is nailbiting. If Pachters seemingly incredibly low 150k WiiU sales for the WHOLE month of november is true, it's going to overload GAF. It would be a historic low for flagship Nintendo hardware noone in their worst nightmare could even begin to imagine just a few weeks ago.

If they are true, Nintendo will have no choice but to take drastic measures in 2014. What could those measures be?

The only thing they could do then. Drop every piece of software they can in 2014.



In the wilderness we go alone with our new knowledge and strength.

put pretty much all 3DS development on hold and make sure their resources are fully in Wii U would be the sensible option.



RIP Dad 25/11/51 - 13/12/13. You will be missed but never forgotten.

this will be a blood bath. anyway it turns out this will blow up, with the exception is if VGC is pretty much spot on.

If VGChartz is spot on, I expect riots from the "3DS massively overtracked" crowd.



I'd kinda put the Wii U sales in these categories

Sub-200k - System was always dead, you just didn't know it, like Bruce Willis in The Sixth Sense.

200-250k - Disastrous

250-299k - Very Poor

300k-350k - Bad, But All Things Considered ...

350-400k - Decent

400k-450k - Getting Into GameCube Territory, Not Bad.

500k+ - Good month, a solid rebound looks to be in effect.
