    You mean we won't see a Battalion Wars 3 on the Wii U? :(

    Wii U does 460k in December in the US. Not good... hard times ahead.

    (360 did 1.4m, PS3 ~700k, Wii 475k for comparison)

    In fairness, it's still doing reasonably well in Japan.

    And other higher numbers are easily googled and performance is being reported as 'actually quite good' and 'not bad'.

    I don't understand why those so against the Wii U hang around in here, there's been enough trolling, let this thread get back to positive discussion.

    Miiverse is also a fantastic place as it's full of people who are enjoying playing and discussing the games and helping each other out.

    ZombiU is bloody fantastic as well!

    In fact every single thing (not quite but who cares) about the Wii U is fantastic so stick that in your pipe and smoke it.

    /feels better now

    Other higher numbers? I really hope you're going to point me at what I think you're going to point me at.

    I'm not going to point you anywhere, search yourself if you're that interested. Top marks to you if your numbers are correct. There are also a lot of positive statements in the articles that report the numbers you've posted but you fail to mention those.

    We get you don't like the Wii U and think it will fail, we'll done.

    They're NPD figures. They're correct.

    Oh, and for what it's worth... I'll be getting a Wii U (Pikmin 3), but I'm a long way from being impressed by it (can you tell?). So yeah, I want them to fail hard so they throw everything at it.

    So about the same as the Wii launch then?

    Some stellar numbers for the 360 though, must have been discounted quite a bit more than the PS3 on the black friday sale.

    God, I miss the monthly NPD threads.

    Thank you scoobysi for reminding me of the gleeful idiocy that abounded each month :)

    Yeah, just a touch less than the Wii. Though obviously you could actually buy the Wii U in stores.

    Black Friday numbers aren't in this BTW, that's November's figures.

    Good 890k doesn't sound too bad to me.

    And the rest of you post, completely logical.
  • Deleted user 11 January 2013 02:01:42
    Even more impressive then, any idea why the masses went for the adbox vs the ps3 considering the ps3s recent numbers?

    I guess the PS3 deals were just that much better in November vs December.

    Anyway... uhh... back on topic. Wii U should realistically be doing around 150k in January unless Nintendo pulls some rabbits out of the hat.
  • Deleted user 11 January 2013 02:08:33
    Sounds about right, probably get a few game announcements in february before that march games go on sale.

    They don't on the whole. The companies do directly... except Sony whose figures usually end up getting leaked.

    I'm not surprised the sales are decent rather than amazing consider the complete lack of promotion.

    I wonder what the complete lack of promotion tells us about Nintendo's future support for this, first party titles etc.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    That they're saving money so they can blow half a million pounds on getting Helen Mirren to advertise Wii Fit U? ;)

    Has there been much promotion on this? Just considering the volume of sales.

    I wonder how many times you can say something is shit before it just becomes background noise?

    I reckon we must be fast approaching that point, or maybe I'm just hoping.

    Anyhow, I think there was a fair amount of promotion and advertising over the Xmas break. There were plenty of TV ads at prime time, and even though they weren't exactly groundbreaking, they did at least try to address some of the confusion surrounding the new console/peripheral debate.

    When you can't see the angles on the wall you're in trouble.

    Discussions about console sales figures make me hard.

    Theres been more promotion for the Wii U than there was for the game cube.

    Certainly, it was pretty much the only gaming product I saw advertised over christmas.
