      1. They don’t buy Wii Us, they rather play Appling garbage which is just as bad or worse than Xbots…

      2. I wouldn’t worry too much, what hardware sales can’t do, software sales more than makes up for it…

  1. In terms of Wii U hardware, then it’s back to normal, hovering between 4 figures and 5 figures. On the software front, it’s well and truely Nintendodomination. I’m curious, with how well Mario Kart 8 has sold, has it surpassed 4 Million copies sold worldwide yet? Also, how long do you guys think it would take Mario Kart 8 to become the best selling Wii U game? Also, will Smash Bros for Wii U be the better seller or not? How much is Smash Bros for Wii U at worldwide? Ugh, so many questions!!!!!!!

      1. Because Yokai Watch is better and actually innovates why Pokemon is the same shit over and over cause fanboys can’t stand changes.
