November 2012 NPD: Nintendo sells over 1.75 million hardware units

Hm... Only 845k WiiU sold. Those are ok numbers but I don't think they can keep up this momentum. Frankly Put, the WiiU does not have any games. There are no killer apps that make you go "Wow I need to have this". Right now, alot of people are waiting for details of Sony and MS next gen consoles. There is nothing coming out for the WiiU in 2013 and frankly the ps3/360 are keeping alot of core gamers happy.

@ Konabro

Thxs for the clarification. I was having a hard time believing this sold 845k in such short time.

Not even close.
NeoGAF has numbers. They break down like this:

Nintendo 3DS: 540K (-32.1%)
Nintendo Wii U: 425K
Nintendo Wii: 420K (-51.1%)
Nintendo DS: 370K (+5.7%)

Microsoft and Nintendo mentioned their numbers, now it's time for Sony.

So NeoGAF and VGchartz can't be trusted?

Then where do you go?

The oficial statements from: nintendo, sony, microsoft.

The Wii U is reaching into an alleged market gap i don't think exists and does nothing for me as an owner of the other current-gen consoles, but i think people need to lay off with the uber negativity and give it time to grow.

Alot of these statements we are seeing plagued the PS3 launch too in the media and have a look where the PS3 is now? It's the strongest it has ever been and it's going on 7 years old. Who's to say Wii U can't turn it around and become a massive hit once PS3/360 move on?

If you have a Wii U, good stuff, go have fun. If you own a current system already and the Wii U doesn't appeal to you (as it doesn't me) then lay off with the negativity.

I'm neither gonna hate on it or show uber enthusiasm, it needs time to grow and learn what direction it wants to travel.

Mika, if you had a hard time believing it sold that much then why was your opening sentence saying only 845k sold?

I was going to respond to you, but I understand now why you have only one bubble. So sad. Freaking trolls and fanboys make this site's comments sections the joke that it is. Congrats.

Pikmin 3 is in 2013! PIKMIN 3!!! For the first time in nearly 9 years! How are you not excited!? Have you not seen the gameplay!? Have you never played Pikmin?! Huh!? HUH!?

WTF are talk about??
Wii U numbers are actually really good , especially if you note NPD is only counting the first 7 Wii U days...
Deku-Johnny  +   998d ago
You obviously don't own one. The only people I've heard say the Wii U isn't worth buying right now are those that have never even been in the same room as it.

Why are there so many spreadsheet gamers??

Sales this, figures that, digits, numbers?? ...leave that to shareholders....God forbid you people actually remember to play the games!!

....everybody's a shareholder or on the board when it comes to consoles LMFAO

Some people seem to forget, they're nothing but an end user in this business...now go start a company.

People here would rather play console wars than play games. It's true.
MegaLagann  +   998d ago
Apparently all gamers have marketing & business degrees. Or they're talking out their ass (myself included). My guess is on the latter.
tiffac008  +   998d ago
Actually I think its a new type of game since almost everyone seems to be playing it.

What someone telling the truth? How DARE you! For the record 720 will own. But still until then I have my PS3 and Xbox360 fanboys to attact the Wiiu. I will get one as soon as a JRPG comes out. For 'testing' purposes! I dont know how people are putting these numbers down. I mean this is WAY above what the xbox or PS3 did during there launch week. If your putting down wiiu numbers your punking xbox and playstation numbers.

My brother and I bought a wii u at launch and three games each. I have also downloaded trine and inferno. I love the system and I am happy that I can contribute to the wii u success
AWBrawler  +   998d ago
I never heard of trine, so i am a bit confused. Do i need to play part 1 to understand part 2? I am on the fence on downloading it
lfclee  +   998d ago
It's the same fanboys on here bashing on the wiiu! We know what your opinions are so why are you repeating yourselves, do us a big favour and leave nintendo fans discuss there console of choice unless you have something interesting to say which i doubt?

So keep your same opinions to yourselves because it's so, so boring and it's boring us to oblivion, talk about (GROUND HOG DAY).
