I don't think the Wii U numbers took into consideration the entirety of the weekend, but yeah the Xbox numbers are pretty solid. The original Wii only sold 600,000 over its launch week too. Video games be making money! I think it's great everything seems to be selling well.

It shows that consoles aren't dead no matter what some people like to say.

My favorite part is how Nintendo blamed shortages for Wii U sucking. Yeah, cause it couldn't have anything to do with the console being outdated on the tech side and a mediocre at best upgrade of the Wii on the innovation side.

On the bright side, I saw an entire pallet of Wii's selling for $99 if anyone needs a new Gamecube

Why blame it on the shortages? When a console can be found on a shelve around the time of launch, there is no excuse for selling so few units.

Ah not to much of an xbox fan but I'm kinda glad it sold better than the Wii U. At least so were told.

exactly. didnt they do basically the same thing when the 3DS didnt go over so well?

on the bright side it means Wii U's should see a price drop relatively quickly, unlike the Wii. but the fact they arent selling like hotcakes sucked a little for me, as i bought a Deluxe on launch to put on eBay and only made like $60 profit after all fees and shipping. better than nothing but i was hoping they would be going outrageous like when the Wii launched.

Are you being sarcastic THM or you really do like the 360?

Exactly.. Nintendo have had a year to mass produce the consoles and they more that likely have 3-4 million if not more stockpiled up to ship out, maybe not all made it to US retailers but it doesn't matter when the system didn't even sell out in the first place.

It really may have been because of supply shortages. I thought it was weird that the Wii sold 300k units that week, not much less than its successor. It's either due to supply or extremely bad advertising, I think.
