It already had huge appeal with them and the best games currently on it are the Nintendo shop games.

People just ignored them until now for someone reason.

Well with Unity4 supported for every indie developer expect eshop games to become increasingly better and graphically intense compared to LIVE/PSN.

Considering the Wii U accounted for a miserable .7% of Call of Duty: Black Ops IIsales last year (when the game was the year's best-selling title)

Maybe i'm missing something but were there enough wiiu systems sold to account for more hmnnnnnn.

It was a launch day title for a brand new console... Did you expect it to outsell the 360 version?

I don't have the figures available but wouldn't a better metric be the number of copies of a game sold as a percentage of that consoles user-base? 0.7% sounds terrible but what if 10% of Wii U owners bought the game, is that so terrible?

P.S. I'm a member of that 0.7% by the way ;)
