"Xbox 360 out-performed Wii U's launch"


And the ps2, ds, gba outperformed the 360 at launch. Nobody is suprised that a system with launch limits gets outsold. Not strange, normal

lol I am cool. Its about leaving the slant behind and telling it how it is.

Launch numbers are never more than established systems. Ever since launch constraints have become the norm

I don't quite understand. Isn't the WiiU being sold with marginal profit from the console in order to make significant profit from games? Wouldn't almost any console at launch make less profit dollars up front? That's the business model, right?

It sounds like the story is "Wii U continues 27 year trend of console business strategy"

I wonder what percent of those numbers are people just replacing their faulty 360.

Launch limits? LMAO. Most stores didnt shift their initial launch allocation fully! Anyone who wanted one could get one without pre order in most places. 'Mon the blind fan boys!

End of the day the Xbox is doing really well still, 7 years on. I still love playing on mine, but I must admit, I do crave news about the nextbox....

Seriously, if you have nothing better to say dont say anything, that ship sailed long ago. Sick off this dribble. The xbox (slim version)is now probably the most reliable system on the market.

Your never going to get an answer from him now you called him out, and if you do it will just be incoherent dribble.
