560 People Are Playing Black Ops II Online on the Wii U Right Now

Kotaku - Call of Duty: Black Ops II is now out on the Wii U. It's just not being played online that much. Too many people still at work or in school? Console too new? People drawn to other Wii U games? Everyone distracted by the surprisingly terrific Miiverse?

Actually those earlier reports seem to be wrong.

I don't know. I see plenty of retarded fanboys on here that have no love for Sony whatsoever, but believe what you want.

Many parents bought this console as a Christmas gift, and they probably won't get to open it till Christmas.

Are you saying that the majority of ppl who intend to play this game on wii u are children getting it as a gift from their parents? i doubt parents will buy this game for kids if they even know this system exists yet..

I doubt many wii u owners will play games beyond 1st party offerings but if there is a high selling 3rd party title, this would be it.. It can sell on any platform for some odd reason

The line where I was at there was this child who had been waiting there since 5pm (I've NO idea how he convinced his parents, seemed like a nice kid, but he might've been spoiled). Needless to say he was the only child there out of 8 people in line.

Well at least there's a chance of being in the top 100 on the leaderboards, not like the PS360 where a quarter million people were already prestiged on day 1.

lol I noticed that.
If you prestige in one day I'm sorry but you need to get a life!

They coulda had the day off...

Summons752013d ago


but 90% of cod players are in middle school and early high school and it was a school day so unless if last Tuesday had the biggest skip rate in history then most of them were in school....

Yeah the game is 60 bucks and for you not to enjoy the game is just plain stupid. I dont know about you guys but i buy my games to play them instead of sitting in front of my PC posting in N4G and calling the day one prestige no lifers.

I have to say I am totally SHOCKED that so few people are online compared to the other versions...........

even though it is only 2 days old and only has been released in one region verse 70 million worldwide

Hmmm, maybe Nintendo fans have a better taste in games? ;)

Loving those disagrees, it's cool to bash COD until someone writes something like this.

Maybe its because the wii had watered down ports and now wiiu has the definitive version its going to be word of mouth and not to mention the wiiu has been out a day so 560 players is good Vita gamers cant find any1 online ? Plus wiiu is only out in the US wait for Europe and UK ect there will be 10,000 online come christmas and tht number will climb when gamers see that if u want the smoothest ride its on wiiu.
