Now if only the Wii U or better yet Nintendo would get their act together we could have a real party, because c'mon a two man party isn't all that hot.

Impressive numbers by both consoles though.

Because of this Xbox One sales, I hope the next generation of Nintendo consoles will sell over two million consoles faster than Xbox One.

Nintendo there's still time. Release a no tablet WiiU SKU that's $100-$150 cheaper and patch the OS so you can use it with the pro controller. I'll buy a WiiU then! o:
Nintendo won't do it though

Glad to hear news like this. It further proves that console gaming is still alive.


Slash, like you said, there's no way in hell they would or should do that. XD

Microsoft launched their consoles at a much wider scale than Sony's attempt; that's why they're seeing the effect called 'wisdom of the crowd'. But in the long-term, PS4 will take over XBone's sales; just look at EBay sales, PS4 is significantly higher than XBone's. But still, both consoles are worthy to try somehow.

I'm honestly more interested in the US numbers of Xbox One's compared to PS4.
Anyway, we'll find out tomorrow, as NPD will reveal the sales of the US for the past month for all consoles and handhelds.

Xbox One is currently on sale in 13 markets while PlayStation 4 is currently on sale in 32 markets, I'd hardly call that launching on a much wider scale. I get that Microsoft attempted a 13 country worldwide launch which is largely unheard of in the console space but Sony had the much wider launch. Though it is all largely irrelevant as Xbox One has sold 2+ million, PlayStation 4 has sold 2+ million and both did it in just over 2 weeks on the market.

So far, it's about as close as any console race could be this early on and there are positives to find in both camps. Microsoft can find solace in the fact that Xbox One is on sale in less countries and is still competitive sales wise. Sony can be happy that PlayStation 4 is the fastest selling console in history beating out PlayStation 2. This launch for both systems has been incredible as after Nintendo's rather poor reception with the Wii U it could have been a sign of consoles just not being what people want anymore, but what we're seeing is that if anything people want consoles more than any time in history which is exciting.

That is just amazing, really happy to see gaming at such a high. I, like everyone else, am very excited to see what is in store for the future and where gaming will go and improve from this!

Reggie: Maybe...maybe if we looked at what these consoles where doing and improved on that without sacrificing our Nintendo flare and drop the whole "different for the sake of being different" but rather make innovative new improvements that can make permanent changes to revolutionize gaming and not just fads we'd do better?

Iwata: So what your saying is....Cranky Kong?

Reggie: Precisely.

Shut up, blacklabel

What with your accurate information and unretarded reading comprehension.

And you too, dedvalve.

Nintendo is FINE! If anything we need more mario games with the same title but rearranged words.

The 3D has an on/off switch though, all they really did was make one thats permanently off.

You can thank their long line of failed/forgotten add-ons for having the game pad tethered to it, they actually learned the hard way to do that. Remember the Wii U's predecessor, the GC/GBA cable? They should have either went all out or not at all and made a separate Kinect-like bundle. I like that they're trying to allow plenty of options, but they need to quite trying to get as close to every line imaginable without actually crossing any.

I'm also really wondering how this console will perform in Japan, considering that the Xbox 360 bombed there.

Who the *bleep* is the troll two posts above me? XD
