Wii u won't hold to wii sales.

jaymart2k1314d ago

PS4 & Xbox 720 won't either. Your point?

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1314d ago (Edited 1314d ago )

wiiU won't hold to Sony's ps4 exclusives or app loading time or cloud service or blu ray drive or being open to cross platform gaming like some pc/ps3 games or willingness to make new AAA games at the end of a generation to maximize your investment in a console or be the only company to not turn their back on the long time core gamers.. And that is during a financial struggle.

Everything else wiiU will do better I am sure.

As long as ninty stays true to the casual gamers they will stay on top. Or abandon you guys again.

Still waiting for N64 days to comeback? shame..

@shutUpAndTakeMyMoney, Wii U will have better exclusives than PS4. Nintendo have the best exclusives every generation. Especially when they finally release the new IPs they're working on.

zebramocha1313d ago

@deku that is a big lie,nintendo didn't make any new games for the wii and didn't show any for the wiiu,which could've made good use of the game pad.

Amsterdamsters1313d ago

@shutUpAndTakeMyMoney We're talking about systems that actually exists...at this point, you're talking about vaporware. Once the PS4 is available in stores, you're point would be more valid.

Hmmm where have we heard this and other lines like "Nintendo will fail", "Wii will not sell"... So far Wii U sales are mirroring Wii.

MegaLagann1313d ago

How's that time machine?

I love how everyone at N4G has a marketing and business degree apparently.

PopRocks3591313d ago

Then they go and criticize Pachter for doing the same thing.

Cocozero1314d ago

Quite impressive sales, its even surpassed the PS3 LTD sales already. No surprise though Nintendo has always dominated Japan.

Servbot1314d ago

Their consoles sure haven't. The N64 sold significantly less than the Saturn in Japan, and the Gamecube barely had a presence.

Zodiac1314d ago (Edited 1314d ago )

The DS turned everything around for them. Nintendo has completely dominated Japan since the DS was released.

The story goes pretty much like this. Give the DS a better back light and rule the Japanese gaming market from then on.

Even the Wii is getting close the PS2 LTD sales in Japan.

jetpacksheep1314d ago

The Japanese market likes their countries consoles as well as Japnese developed games e.g Playstation and Nintendo, Xbox 360 sales in Japan are practically non-existant.

xflo3601313d ago

Exactly! its the same reason why xbox360 is most popular in the usa and its also why in europe there is no dominant console!

josephayal1314d ago (Edited 1314d ago )

I have seen plenty of Wii U's at Walmart, Target, Gamestop and Best Buy

brettyd1314d ago

Yea i was just at Best Buy and saw several piles of them.

Deku-Johnny1313d ago

There were piles of 360's and PS3 when they first came out and they've done quite nicely.

donman11313d ago

Piles of which version??? Last time I check Wii U white versions are out there. Its the Black Deluxe version everyone wants.

avengers19781313d ago

Plenty of both standard and deluxe versions, all over town in nw Ohio... Meijer was the only store, that only had white ones.

Khordchange1314d ago

Wii U off to a good start
