Michael Pachter has released his estimate for how many Wii U units were sold during November and it isn't pretty.
Geez during the holiday season that would be a crushing blow only managing to sell that much
yeah, we'll have to wait to see the actual numbers. In the article they mentioned how Pachter has been way off with his estimates before.
Yea that's about right. So much for the articles and people saying WiiU will be the biggest seller in the holidays among the current-gen systems.
They sold more than that the last two weeks.
They sold almost twice as much in just one week, but ok, guess Patcher has to patch his analysis first^^
Nintendo needs to step things up if they wanna continue to exist in the home console market
Whaaaaaaa???? What else can you let us know? Is water wet or dry? If jimmy cracks corn, do i care? How much would a wood chuck chuck?
People believe this idiot guy? All hope is lost for humanity.
Wow that's pretty sad if true Nintendo is going to need more than what they showed at the VGX to turn this thing around. ;)
Obviously they have more than Donkey Kong....have you seen..um Nintendo Directs?
I think you need to chill the f out your comments are by far the worst ive ever seen on any blog site.
Good thing it's not true. It sold 274,179 on the week of Black Friday alone..
No really???? You mean it will take more than cranky kong??? You should tell nintendo because for the e3 direct they will show 1 hour of cranky rocking in his chair. They stopped working on smash bros, zelda u, yarn yoshi etc because they believe all they need is cranky Because how stupis would it be to assume all they have is cranky right ? ;)
Man, you Nintendo fans are so cranky
And you Ninendo haters believe every stupid thing, it just has to be bad for Nintendo, doesnt matter if its true or not.
Good thing VGchartz already says he's miles off base.
Are the NPD numbers based on sales at retailers or Nintendo s sales into the supply chain? Same question re Pacthers estimate? Is he talking shipped by Nintendo or sold at retail- those numbers could be very different as we saw negative sales one quarter this year in Europe
It's a prediction, and he's usually wrong with these. VGChartz says 290,521, I'm going to say 270K.
i was gonna say im pretty sure there was WAY more.
Not even sure why news sites report on what he says. Typically, he's as credible as anyone.
When has he been correct on these monthly numbers? Never Who cares.
He was wrong about the October, he predicted 40-50K, the Wii U sold around 90-100K
Lies, the wiiu sold 198,000 during the week ending nov30,2013 in north america. The week before that it did close to 110,000 And the weeks before where around 60,000-80,000. Patcher is an idiot.
Bingo! I've got Bingo!!!!!
I get disagrees for telling the truth ? Da fuq ???
Well gee, considering that he said Wii U only sold what he estimated to be 50k in September ,and the Wii U in fact sold 100k, I would doubt he is correct. In fact I think the guy just likes to hear himself talk. The man is an idiot.
Hes talking about US only. 168k last week and around 50k week before.
He's forgetting Black Friday sales, I think.
And digital sales...
Huh? How can you sell Wii U's digitally? You download Wii U units? How?
I think you should have specified Digital Sales as applying to software.XD
VGChartz > Pachter
That's like saying a punch to the face is better than a kick to the balls. They both suck.
VGchartz data is only off by 5 to 20 percent. It rarely enters the 20 percent range.
but a kick in the balls (Patcher estimate) sounds a lot worse to me.
If coming at close enough force .. there is no way a punch to the face is as bad as a kick to the balls.
Guys, I'm not saying Pachter is anything other than a gigantic douche-nozzle. I'm just saying VGChartz is about as accurate as a Magic 8Ball!
Is Patchy still going at this? Man this guy needs to get a new career. He wasn't correct a few months ago so I doubt he will be this time either. And um... Black Friday sales? Wii U sold the most last I checked.
2nd most between current gen. Behind XB1
What the hell is he basing this on?
LMAO wii u sold like 200k black friday week LOL
Not true, spreading false lies to feed the trolls... Thats sad... :(
149k...in what region?
How can he make this prediction if they already Sold around 250,000 one week of November....
At least IT Works look at xb1 ans ps4 problems look at Youtube Smoke coming out shooting outfit discs karma sucks
This article was complete click bait nonsense.
i really like the effort ive seen so far on TV they are getting aggressive in their commercials, I can't remember during the first year ever seeing a commercial for the wii U and recently they are everywhere I even seen one in spanish im sure they sold more than that
Come on Pachter just give up already! Your opinions/estimations are no longer relevant to the gaming industry. Quite honestly, I'm not entirely sure how you still have a job! At the very least, you could bow out of being in the public eye, because the majority of the gaming community is sick of the sight of you. Go home. Retire. Thanks.
