    PS3 seems to be doing about 10000 a week, so 22000 in a couple of days sounds pretty good.

    Obviously it needs to keep that up for a long time.

    A lot has happened in that time. I've had 3 kids and the snip.

    Not being the best is not the same as not being able to play.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Forget how to launch? The 3DS launch was also a disaster, Wii launch was also very poor (apart from Wii Sports and TP they had bugger all except for the likes of Excite Truck).
    Apart from Wii Sports they haven't had a new console launch with a flagship title since 1997 and you're surprised by them screwing up a launch?

    It does compared to the numbers it has been doing recently.
    It does show that people will buy when a decent game comes out for it.
    Now Nintendo just need to make sure the other stuff that they have planned is going to be good quality, without having to delay stuff first.

    It'll give a decent bump in Japan but make no difference outside of it.

    Surely if 1/5 of all sales were with a new console means it is not doing a bad job at selling the system.

    depends what you think of the actual figures. If it sold 10 copies in a week and five wii us were sold then WOOP! 50% attach figures!

    yes, that's fair enough, but it is doing good sales numbers, last weeks top seller in Japan (earth defence force) sold about 150K.

    Pikmin has shifted 100K in 2 days, so with the good sales numbers it is selling a decent amount of consoles. IMO

    Since when does decent amount become good amount?

    And in two days it has sold double what the PS3 sold in Japan last week.
    I am not saying that means everything is rosy and Wii U will be the best selling console ever.
    I am just saying that I think that 1/5 of the sales of Pikmin were alongside consoles means it's doing a decent job of selling consoles.
    Obviously it needs to sell a lot more to be a major success, but as I said before if Nintendo can get the currently announced games out when they said and they are all of good quality then people will pick up the console.

    I wasn't comparing to PS360 sales I was saying that Pikmin was doing a decent job of selling the Wii U.

    Well, here's hoping sales pick up in Japan as a result. Nintendo games often hover about in the Japanese charts for months and months. Pikmin has never done that, mind.

    I would love to know the sales spike in PS3s in the week that Last of Us came out.

    The guys over Nintendo Life think Nintendo are 'saved' because of the whole Pikmin 3 hoo-ha.

    ... let's wait and see, hey?

    im not sure thats what the article says at all?

    "It's only the beginning, however, and green shoots do not represent a complete recovery, far from it. First comes a bump in interest, which is vital, but next has to come sustained momentum throughout 2013 and beyond."

    was the closing comment.

    It will be interesting to see if we get a 100% bump in hardware sales with the release of pikmin as they did in Japan

    That's right we have the possibility of selling 2 whole consoles in a week and a half's time (sorry couldn't help it)

    Reassuring to see it's business as usual.

    Anyone know when the Pikmin 3 reviews will start hitting reputable sites?

    Weather report says it's raining on the release day so if it stays that way I can have a guilt free day inside playing with little men.

    Just enjoy it, its easy to get disheartened on here with the constant bad news, trolling and wum's, but enjoy it, you spent the money. It has a few good games out for it already, more are coming, just make sure you buy them ( they need every little help at the moment!)
