I find it odd that the first people to jump on Nintendo news are the are people who don't care about the console or hate it most.

Its backwards. I don't want any more Sony produces, but I don't stalk Sony news and leave hate comments all over it. I don't care about it so why put in that much effort?

When I see people post only negative things on an article, it makes them seem kind angry and bitter for some reason. The Nintendo hatred on this site is ridiculous.

as there shouldnt be a price cut yet, the system is selling well in a tough economy with bad advertisements and no major games yet

I guess vita is selling well too since they sell around the same figures monthly give or take 10K right?

we need to stop it with the double standards people if A 140k is ok for wii U the surely 130k vita's is ok Am I right?

but if not you get where im going.

I guess I'll go there.

According to the NPD's numbers, despite the lower sales momentum, the Wii U continues to generally outsell the Vita. Some weeks in particular regions there have been exceptions of course, but looking at the big picture; the Vita's current lifetime sales are at over 2 million. The Wii U's are now over 3 million in a much shorter span of time (two months as oppose to two years).

So let me get this straight... People are fully expecting a price drop for the Wii U this year, but none for the Vita? With those sales numbers, That... Just doesn't make any sense to me.
