Nintendo detractors have to understand that last gen the Wii sold more than 100,000,000 units and Nintendo was very profitable. Sony and Microsoft can't even come close to saying the same. Nintendo is actually the only one still making money right now.

ps2 sold over 150 million. :(

Nintendo made a billion dollars last year in 3DS software/hardware sales. It started out really slowly as well, but when it hit the content to price sweet spot things turned around. I don't know if WiiU stands a chance of selling the most systems or not, but you'll go broke betting against Nintendo. WiiU will be fine.

Maybe Nintendo does have Software lined up for Next Year.

I'm sure we'll know in the January Direct.

The games are already there. Marketing and public perception of Wii U are still hurting the console.

Reggie told the Dorito pope on GTTV that Nintedo wouldn't make the same marketing mistakes in 2014 that they made in 2013 and promised constant advertisements and marketing, admitting that the lack of marketing was a mistake. He also boldly predicted the that three Ninty exclusives, the U versions of Smash, Kart, and Mario 3D World; will all be top ten sellers of all systems despite being on only one system. That's a bold claim.

I admire Reggie's confidence, but it's over for the Wii U. Put a fork in it, it's toast. It won't even sell as well as the Gamecube.

Gotta love a corporate tool doing nothing but spouting lies that he knows are bullshit...actually, no we dont.

THe Wii-U is an amazing console. It's a shame ninty can't get their shit together with third party devs though.

The Wii-U will be the gamecube of this generation. Have a lot of amazing first party and bought exclusives while the other two just sell wildly like hot cakes.

Idk about it actually competing with the ps4\xb1, but he is right that software drives hardware sales.

And the wii u has a great lineup for the next 6 months.

I thought so too Reggie, then the PS4 happened.

You mad that knack outsold mario?

He has a point before the PS4 and Xbone console gamers would go on and on about it all about the games, yet anymore every console argument is about the hardware and the games are only used for graphical comparisons.

"Stellar software lineup" = one 3D Mario game?

Also a 2D Mario game, a Pikmin game, a Monster Hunter game, Zombi U, Rayman Legends, and Lego City. It's fairly lackluster, but it's amazing in comparison to the other 2 new consoles.

Don't know what Reggie has been smoking tbh. Wii U seems destined to go the way of the Dreamcast to me. The handheld market is Nintendo's strongest point.

Reggie is irrelevant like the company he's working for.

The new SSB will probably sell 9 million and boost it to 15 million or so and be the best selling game just like the gamecube. (Unless the 3DS version takes sales which is unlikely.

The game is going to sell 2 times (or 3 times for 15 million) the total number of consoles sold worldwide?

How about no.
