Wii-U must have done terrible since Nintendo only spoke on 3DS numbers

For Nintendo's sake I hope they knock it out of the park at E3. All signs right now say 2013 is going to be rough on Nintendo Management.

Neogaf Wizards have it at 67K with MHU and Lego whatever for a FIVE week period. System is officially on life-support. Not even the Vita dropped this hard in its 5th month. 3rd party software sales and attach rate is terrible too.

NeoGAF is full of sh*t and spin. This is the same site that held back PSV and PS3 numbers for almost two years. They know sales topics are nothing but PR fodder. And the site is nothing but an agenda machine stacked with sock puppet accounts. The next time you're on NeoGAF ask them why PaidForumPosting.com is paying people to post on their site.

This is also the same site that declared the 3DS a failure, only to praise it a year later. The same thing will happen with the WiiU. People wil cry doom and gloom now only to be proven wrong a year later. I've actually collected some choice quotes about the 3DS situation a year ago. They are definitely good for a few laughs. And the worst of the bunch, the most embarrassingly fanboy stuff, comes directly from NeoGAF.

Also, fuzzy math.

Absolutely!

However, Nintendo is better than SONY. SONY didnt release any statement! At least Nintendo is a Man about it.

3DS hardware increased over 9 percent and software increased over 50 percent
bicfitness  +   1031d ago
They're still down YoY. Try and pull yourself out of the spin. And they've missed every hardware forecast they've made for both Wii U and the 3DS.
Khordchange  +   1030d ago
how can you be down year over year with 3ds when it sold better than the previous year in hardware and software? lol

Good to see a re-confirmation that Mario Kart, 3D Mario, and Smash Bros will be at E3.

hopefully one of those games will be out by the end of the year to help wii u sales

Eyes all on E3 now

Uuhm because of Nintendo gamers they have no third party support. As wii U owner i buy everything on the wii U , but many FANBOYS only buy Nintendo games. Why should a third party developer even bother if people only spend money on mario

Nintendo got the WII u launch wrong and this is the result, The Wii U simply needs games
ps3_pwns  +   1031d ago
gonna need more then that and everything needs to happen before october aka the rumored ps4 and possibly x720 launch. its game over if nintendo dont get the wii u games out not just pikmin 3, but wonderful 101, and possibly a 3d mario game. they also need to add a 50 buck price cut to the system as well. I hope nintendo realises that they need to be urgent because no way in hell you gonna stop people from buying a ps4/x720 with the awesome games that will come to it. next gen fallout 4, witcher 3, etc just will be way more appealing then pikmin and wonderful 101. time is of the essence.

Not really, Nintendo needs to do them, not worry about the PS4 and Xbox 720. We don't even know the price or launch date of any of the shit you mentioned.

It's about games, and Nintendo has plenty in the burner. E3 my friend, E3.

I'm sick of waiting for WiiU games and getting pissed off!
I have been a loyal NIN fan from 1985. I always hope the best and believe NIN will return to the Snes days. That dream is quickly fading.

You don't sound like much of a Nintendo fan at all, because most Nintendo fans checked the listings before the console was announced and they already new what to expect.

"Nintendo fans" bought the console because of what they know will be coming out on it in the future. They have no question about where or not the games are coming few "true" fans have a desire to see Nintendo go backwards.
