This was only 4 weeks after release.  Imagine what it is now.  As of 31 March 2013, it has sold 3.45 million console units.  I mean the Wii won the last gen console war, with many more sales in USA, Europe, and Asia, so I don't see why WiiU won't win this one.  THe WiiU also was pre-ordered more than the Wii.  So yeah, stop being babies and accept the fact that Nintendo has been around much longer and has much more experience with this.  I own PS3 and XBOX 360, and might even get a PS4 (Not Xbox1) but I prefer Nintendo.

The thing is, you think that the Wii U sales are going to increase after the first four weeks. That is where you are wrong. Of course it sold like crazy those first 4 weeks, it was new and exciting. You want me to imagine what the sales are now? I don't have to imagine, because I know the Wii U sold less than 40,000 per week in April. It's a sinking ship. It's being outsold by it's own predecessor.

So yeah, the Wii U is not selling well.

Literally nobody with half a brain or any knowledge of the subject has said that the Wii U isn't selling well. Redundant thread, game over.

Well that's just the problem, many people on earth don't have half a brain.  All my friends and ppl on this are saying, "Nobody's buying the WIIU"

And your friends are right if you check Wii U's CURRENT sales you'll see what are people talking about.

Not to mention the fact that the new Xbox's reveal was so bad that it actually boosted Wii U sales.

Well its True that in the old Time Nintendo was selling well but then they were late and the wii u is just a little progress of their console, but with the war of ps4 and xbox one, Nintendo have a chance to keep progressing and get on the top
