This is reality here many of you don't realize. The 360 and ps3 had strong launches and bad first years in sales.

The Wii u, it is at 4 or 5 million in sales, and with this low economy and higher expenses, x1 and ps4 will also have this problem

difference is the Wii u is a 1080p console that is already cheaper and getting a price drop with New bundles, and a library of over 120 games.

The most X1 and ps4 will sell at most next year is 2.5 million. The Wii u already has a foothold and is gaining increases.

The Wii U revolves around its exclusive games, because 3rd party games will rarely see the light on it.

I think the Wii U is cool.

In the next gen sales war I see it losing it's lead by Q4 2014.

There's already over a million PS4 pre-ordered and this was back in August.

Both PS4 and Xbone will pass Wiiu within a matter of months of their launch. Wiiu has 3 million units sold in a years time frame, that is not good.

Gonna be pretty hilar to see the PS4 blow the u out of the galaxy, gonna happen real fast that's almost a given. Right about now nintendo should have their heads down coming up with a next gen console, they're going to be pretty late to the party.

@Desmonic: pretty sure the current finances are at 4 million. But the slow sales will hurt x1 and ps4 as well. Wii u Is on better ground, cheaper, getting exclusive bundles, and price cuts on games and hardware.

Did someone really make this thread? If I'm wrong and the OP is correct, I'll gladly eat crow, but I just don't see this scenario happening at all.

You guys care way too much about sales here. Just enjoy your games and let the game companies worry about that stuff.

Normally I would make a joke and say something not nice. BUT, I am really feeling too sorry for you at this point.

Sales are part of it though. They have always been, even in the Sega vs Ninty wars in the 90's. Games, sales, features, specs...System Wars implies all of that. Game enjoyment isn't one of those things though :P

Nobody gave a **** when the Wii dominated PS3 and 360 in sales. Nobody gave a **** when PS3 spent 90% of this generation dead last. Sales don't affect real gamers, just mindless fanboy trolls with no sense.

Like I said, SYSTEM WARS. This is not a place of real world reflection, and I'm pretty sure you know it by now. So I'm not getting the point of your posts really...

I mean if you want to talk about how much you enjoyed this or that game there are other forums for that. In here though you'll mostly see discussions why X system is better than Y system or Z system. To that effect games, sales, specs, ads, even the f*cking colour of the boxes themselves will be used. It's the whole point of this forum.

So yeah...kinda confused right now :P

How are sales "the whole point of the forum"? It's simply one aspect of a bunch of useless junk trolololed here.

You're discussing topic validity and I'm discussing how pathetically useless it is. I'm not saying it's not a valid discussion topic for poops and giggles, and you're probably not saying sales are overly important to gamers.

Because that's not what I said :P I said they are just part of it, therefore valid "arguments" in this fanboy wars. Well techincally anything is valid in these discussions, but whatever XD

Sales are and aren't useless. Depends on the situation. For example, for Sony and Nintendo to have low sales with the Vita and WiiU in the ends doesn't make that much of huge dent since their other platforms are pretty healthy, but should they be in a situation where they are actually really dependant on those platforms, like Sega and Atari once were, then yeah it's a big problem.

Otherwise, it's mostly for sh!ts and giggles online really. Oh, and online bragging rights I suppose :P

You can never tell on this forum because, believe it or not, there are pathetic people who take this stuff VERY SERIOUSLY!!!! :P

Probably under-dveloped children who think things like Call of Duty selling the most games makes it the best game series ever.

Wiiu only shipped 3.91 million so far. Not very good at math are you?

The only way that this could happen is if Nintendo drops the tablet gimmick and lowers the price to $199 within the next month...

An asthmatic snail would have no problems catching the wii u.

At this stage the decent thing to do would be for all the sheep to gather round whilst they are all put in a coffin and buried underground. The UK are sending them back to Nintendo. I am sure the note included in the package was a sarcastic "have another go".

While I believe that the PS4 will end this gen with the most units sold, something tells me that the Wii U will outsell both the PS4 and Xbone this Holiday season. The true sales battle will be Holiday 2014.

It all depends on how well Mario Kart and Smash Bros. take off. And what Nintendo has planned for Xmas 2014.

Good lord, it's almost 2014.
