Not sure why people are bothering comparing 360/PS3 launch sales to the Wii:U

Of course the Wii:U is expected to sell more. It's targeted for casual gamers. Much bigger audience.

Lots of parents popping in to buy one for their children.

still not buying one or am even interested in getting one. can't even run warriors orochi 3 on the same level as current gen? new hardware or not, that engine has been around for YEARS. the fact it supports less on-screen AND slow-down is pretty sad. the wiiu is not truly a "next-gen" console. nintendo has just brainwashed enough people over the years to know that it can release sub-par products and succeed.

This gen is the first ever where the top dog from the previous gen released their console first. This will be interesting to see if Nintendo can be the first to be top console 4 Gens

It wasn't as good a release as the Wii was. I walked around multiple stores and it was pretty easy to find where I'm at. Friends went down to black friday in the U.S. and they could have brought back a dozen from target if they wanted to.

In the US so far it has been better than the Wii's release by 100k.

the reason why u may see the wii u in some stores is because they actually prepared and are re-filling their stock frequently. as opposed to the wii's were they didn't prepare.

Expected from a system that caters to the casual audience. We'll see what happens when the casuals turn to a different product, and Nintendo is left without a core userbase.

First week sells, to me, don't mean much. Those are your early adopters who will buy anything based on the name alone and with Christmas coming up.. that trend will continue. Let's see how the Wii U does AFTER Christmas. Then we'll know rather or not it's a "must have" system.
