    1. Um did you look at what it was? The monster hunter mmo that japan and korea hog for themselves… bastards…

  1. Wii U sales are still not great :-/ They really really do need to get them games out there. On the plus side 3ds is doing amazeballs as per usual :) They need to keep others happy with more games but I’m currently over saturated with games. Can’t wait till final exams are over.

      1. Indeedly doodly. All the Wiiu needs is some killer software and Sales will go right up and then back down again. Once the WIiu has lots of compelling software , sales will stay consistently high.
        Still so many Nintendo fans in the World have not yet bought their Wiiu and are just waiting for the games they want before they make the purchase. ZombiU , Nintendo land , NSMBU was more than enough for me to make a day 1 purchase :)

        1. What I mean isn’t just continue the same and everything will be fine. What I mean is that barely anyone supported Nintendo at the start of the 3DS’s lifetime, but people began to as time went on. The same is happening with the Wii U, and it wont be long before lots of fantastic games begin to come out.

          1. Exactly. By the time games such as Mario kart , 3D Mario and Zelda are out , sales will spike right to the top regardless of what the competition is doing.

            1. Mario Kart will open the console up to the casuals, just like it did with the 3DS, meaning that more people who care more about having a good evening with a group of friends will start to buy the console. I mean, even my sister said she might buy one if she can get together the money.

    1. Does it honestly pleasure you and the rest of the doom and gloom advocates to regurgitate the same blatantly obvious statement over and over again, or is it in your nature to be this redundant (then again, you’ve ad much practice with the PS3 back in its subpar years, unless you suddenly forgot)? That message has been heard over and over again 1,000 times over, but I guess it’ll be heard for the millionth time by your kind before the year is out.

      Well, better stock up on Alka-Seltzer for a good year, then.

      1. Sorry I see now it’s me (my aligning went wrong). What are you talking about? I don’t even own a ps3. I own a wii U and an xbox 360. I’m not a doom and gloom advocate. I’m a big Nintendo fan and believe the pace of the wii U will pick up when they launch key titles like Mario 3D and Mario kart. Actually have no idea what you’re talking about. I was just pointing out this weeks particular sales were not good considering that there has been releases of Game and Wario and Dragon Quest in Japan. You probably should take them alka selterz your head seems to be a mess.

    1. The need to put Xbox 360s as a prize at fairs in Japan to move those RROD disk scratching machines of store shelves.

  2. They Need to Bundle the Vita with a 3DS XL as term the Vita a peripheral for the 3DS. Cause the original 3DS alone is squashing the Vita, PS3 and Wii U.

  3. Monster hunter frontier is in the top ten, an Xbox360 version. Told sony drones that monster hunter sells and moves consoles. Though you do not listen.

    1. Having anything Xbox related at top 10 in our own main base is an abomination on all levels!

      It must be dealt with swiftly…

  4. To the OP, actually the 3DS sold ~76K units combined!!! That’s really quite an amazing feat and outselling it’s rival exactly 5:1.

  5. To the OP, actually the 3DS sold ~76K not 57K units this week. An amazing performance for the 3DS this week as it trounces it’s rival by a margin of 5:1!!! (despite the price cut)
