    1. As spoken by Colonel Jack Angus MacGyver O’neils great right hand warrior in Stargate SG1 Teal’c Indeed.

  1. As I had foreseen, Pikmin 3 put the Wii U above 10.000 units 3 weeks in a row…

    When the rest comes, the console will sell above 15.000 units in average…

    1. I’m suprised Pikmin 3 did so good. The Wii U sales is going to explode when the systemsellers hit!

      1. Indeed, I think we all were surprised that it did as good as it did considering the first two did not do so well in the charts back then…

    2. Nintendo Commander our words of truth. You most wanted result, WiiU has sold over 10 000 for three weeks in a row. I am celebrating as we speak. It would be nice if you, the lady that comments with us, Alba, Sickr, shadow butterfly and I would one day meet for lunch in Sweden and bring our 3DS XL for street pass. Good times and just good old nintendo celebrations.

      1. Indeed it would, celebrating each time the facts proves the haters wrong, each time we get the results we desire and each time our games do well…

        I can’t wait to see if my predictions about the European market in 2 weeks as I have forecasted a sale above 10.000 units for 2 weeks atleast…

        And hopefully our American Nintendo comrades reponds just as good as Japan and Europe…

        I’m still waiting for you 3DS code…*sigh*…

        1. In America the Wii brand sells above 100 000 every month ( Wii + WiiU ). Media outlets deliberately ignore this. One aspect in America is that that Wii is a beloved console with it’s great motion gaming. If nintendo can convey the marriage of Wii motion Wiimote use on the WiiU in Pikmin 3 to the newly aquifer gamers from last generation it’s done in America. Nintendo shall rule as it is already doing 3DS :) with no evil sir lancelot xbots and sir copious knights Sonyans confusing the gaming verse kingdom.

        2. My 3DS code shall arrive shortly most valiant fellow Warrior saving Europe from the scourge of mindless FPS, Nintendo commander :).

                1. Add me 1762-2679-0403. I added both of you already….For smash bros, mk7 & kid ic….

    3. I love you people how last week, were up in glory over pikmin being in the top and selling 22k units. Next week its number 10, and the sales of units almost drop by half. It only up by a couple k of units. You have to love fanboys, never see the truth.

      1. First of all my predictions were only about the Wii U sales concerning Pikmin 3 which I said would be above 10.000 units for atleast 3 weeks which I got confirmed yesterday…

        Second these statistics show the sales basically before Pikmin 3 so it doesn’t say anything about the console overall…

        The only truth I need to see is my own preference of games nothing more and nothing less…

    1. Pikmin 3 fought and slated them and has for three weeks running. That is some wonderful wording my friend :

      “Pikmin3 you put up a good fight little one.”

  2. Wiiu is very healthy in Japan. I can’t wait to see the same in the other market’s.

    1. One of our American Nintendo friends on this site mentioned the other day that Pikmin 3 is being advertised alot right now…

      1. They ignored the WiiU on purpose, like it’s lead game designer’s name is not ‘Shigeru Miyamoto San’ that is like ignoring Mercedes, the BAM! Their lead designer hits you with the reinvented C-class Mercedes of 2008. That is what Miyamoto has done with Pikmin 3, catalystic threshold overcomer igniter of greatness the WiiU. Don’t judge my grammar or spelling, I got an A in English highschool diploma/ GCE/GCSE level. Plus this spell check is crazy on my phone LOL.

        1. I think this is all going according to High Command’s plans…

          It’s not how you begin that matters, it’s how you end it…

          1. Yes Nintendo commander. Nintendo runs the Triathalon, Marathon and Sprints combined, as the competition only sprints.

  3. The Japanese Gamers have finally taken a rest from playing all those wonderful RPGs and diverse genre games on the 3DS, Wii, WiiU, PS3, PSP, DS and PSVita to buy and enjoy Lego City undercover :). Seating at number 9.

  4. WiiU has had two top ten games for 3 weeks. As it stands, Luigi WiiU is in the top 20 I recon :).

  5. Nintendo Bad News: EVERY online magazine writes doom articles
    Nintendo Good News: nobody cares. Fuck the press, enjoy the games. You wanna kill Nintendo? Well, you can’t…

    1. If you google “Wii U” click “News” you’ll see a bunch of rehased articles how Wii U sales declined. Yet the journlist ignores that Pikmin 3 moved Wii U sales up in Japan as well as brought Lego City back from death. But since Pikmin is a Nintendo game, hater are going to act like Nintendo’s weakest and newest IP didn’t just do three things in Japan in less than one month. Last week, when we saw Pikmin 3 come in 2nd in Japan, journlist tried to twist in around how it lost to Minecraft. And ignoring that it at least came in strong period. In other words, whenever goodnews comes to Nintendo, haters will try to dig up bad news….ignoring that Nintendo still made a profit even though Wii U sales lacks 1st party titles. They also want to ignore that the Wii U hardware is more powerful then we think. But since it’s Nintendo, haters are going to act like it’s not powerful and ignoring that after 9 months of being on sale, people still can’t figure out 100% of it’s specs. Also ignoring that if the Wii U is so called current generation, how come professionals don’t know 100% of what’s inside the hardware when the started in 2008? The Wii U may have arrived with no 1st party tittles. but Nintendo must have known something back in 2008 because no one knows 100% of its specs.

    1. It is in the top 10 for the third week running :). Your troll level circuits are short. Short curcuit xbot move along LOL. Nintendo domination :). 3DS happened by the way :).

    2. Ignoring Pikmin caused 5 month old Lego City to come in at 9th. Yet want to play dumb like that didn’t just happen. Also ignoring that you want to play dumb in acting like Pikmin is as powerful in sales as Zelda, Lost Worlds, 3D Mario or even Starfox. If Pikmin made Warner bros more money, Im sure theyll want to make more games on Wii U. Now go back to forgetting.

  6. Looks like good news to me, the install base is big enough now to have 2 titles in the top 10! It’s all upwards from here!
