Wii U sales hit 3 million in 2012, Nintendo forecasts annual

Postby stealth » 30 Jan 2013, 10:02

What shabby writing, basically omitting all the positives in the financials to mention only the negatives. They made profit for third quarter ( not mentioned) , they are back in the green. Wii sales are at 100 mil. 3DS is destroying ( 30 million sales in less than 2 fiscal years is 100 million sold territory in the future) , ect.

f**king hell stealth :shock:

The title is simply a fact, what you want is for them to heap positive praise on Nintendo.

attach rates were higher than analysts predicted, profit has been made this quarter ( which most analysts again didnt predict would happen), the 3ds is selling number 1 worldwide which nobody on this site predicted, and the wii u is selling fine.

You want them to make sure that every Nintendo story has a positive spin. You want everything Nintendo do to be praised. You want their losses to be denied, you want their competitors slated and praising Nintendo, you want everything Nintendo do to be positive - even if it actually isn't. You are the epitome of tunnel visioned stealth. Wish CVG would ban you for a month or 9 and give us all some peace :lol:

I just want the entire story. trolls call for other people to be banned. Pretty sure its even against the rules.

When the entire story isnt representative so the negative slant bias reporting takes over. I have an issue with that. In fact, dtoid has already made tweet about how bad this article was

nobody is denying they slashed there forecasts by the way but the omission that they actually made profit and how well the systems are actually selling ommitted. Is shoddy

At no point did I "call for you to be banned". I was joking :roll:

So then captain objectivity and neutrality Mr Stealth:

Did Wii U sales hit around 3 million sales or not in 2012?
Did Nintendo NOT actually forecast an operating loss? - you posted as i wrote these 2, sorted.

Which part of the factual figures are biased or "poor writing" ? :shock:

So yes, you simply wanted them to add a positive spin to the article.

I agree with you completely! When posting something like this and you clearly only state the negative facts you actually make me wonder... It is not hard to understand why there are so many fanboys of Xbox and Sony when all we hear about Nintendo are bad things, Things like, "this wont do", "oh that is not good enough". I think people generally should stop this whole Console wars... I mean... the article about the fact that Xbox is set to overtake wii in the uk... what has that really got to do with anything? Ever heard of the Red Ring of death... Ever heard of anything like that happening to a sony or nintendo system? Place your beatings where it belong and not on the Wii U because it is a new system... argh! I hope you get my point :)

Facts and reasoning that you use that are equally true for Microsoft and Sony are too conveniently forgotten when they don't support your beloved Nintendo.

The 3DS is selling well, its stuffing the Vita, Xbox, PlayStation 3 and the Black and Decker pizza rehydrator.
Yet the PSP is nearly 55 million ahead of it in sales.

The PSP outsold the Wii u in Japan.

Globally the PS3 outsells the Wii U 3 to 1, even the poor dead Xbox sells 2 to 1 against the Wii U.

This week 32000 people would rather buy a Wii rather than Wii U.
I wonder how many of those are replacements?

Only an idiot compares the psp with 8+ years under its belt to a system with less than 2. Maybe you are who knows.
