Sales Of Wii U In Japan Trail Original Wii Launch Numbers

pcworld.com: Sales of Nintendo's new Wii U game console appear to be lagging those of its famous predecessor in Japan after its opening weekend, though the company says both sold out and comparisons are largely meaningless. (Nintendo, Wii U)

How do you expect them to sell consoles that don't exist yet? There were simply more Wii's at launch than there were Wii U's.

Why do journalists jump on this so hard? They avoiding the context of the situation.

Welcome to the world of journalism :P, its always been like that and likely to continue. It's about the money and such.

And who's fault is that?

It's true, if Nintendo was expecting high demand again, the least they could have done was supply the same amount of units they did for the Wii to at least meet those numbers.

not sure why youre getting so many disagrees on this. last time i checked, electronics dont grow on trees. what was AVAILABLE AT DURING THAT SPECIFIC WEEK sold out very quickly, which is the only actual thing that matters.

people these days...

Riderz, 3 hours ago, kinda has a rebuttal for that.

Only Nintendo can be blamed for the lack of available hardware. And selling out when you were short on supply isn't impressive, in the least.

It will do fine as long as it remains above 50,000 or so every month globally..

im actually i little worried for the wiiu. i just got mine on launch and was super excited but im very shocked at the lack of announced games for it going into next year. Yes we got wonderful 101, rayman legends, Bayonetta 2 and MH3 coming but what else? You would think for a brand new console the game reveals would be coming more frequently then this. i know its not e3 but outside of launch games, i dont see the sells doing too well soon. yes the online is great but bioshock infinite and now dark souls 2 was just announced but not for wiiu. this is very troubling.

WiiU users are Also getting Pikmen3. If a person has a wiiU I would say its likely they have a 360 or PS3. whatever multiplat tittle isnt on WiiU get it on 360/PS3.

No im just a gamer little boy. I've owned every major console since the nes, original xbox, gamecube, dreamcast, sega saturn, psp, ps1, ps2, n64, snes, you name it i've probably owned it. Hope im not offending you "little boy".

They can't sell them cos they sold out in 2 days everywhere!!... I know this as my gf told me that the store worker told her she will be on a 3 week waiting list cos so many have ordered it!

Wii U is selling well in Japan, this is FACT

lol...this is silly....whats the point wiiu is more expensive then the wii was...and with all the lies and negative press from haters..in actuality wiiu is to be considered ahead of the wii in sales and once things gets right with the online part and commercials , wiiu will take off despite haters
