So, in the month of June around the world....
>Wii U: 349,188
Wii U still doomed?????
It is doomed. However at the moment it won't be as doomed since it's getting the multiplats.
When shit like GTA and Destiny comes out, no one will give a fuck about the WiiU other than Nintendo fans.
>Why won't my son's Nintendo play these games he wants?
>Oh, they aren't on this system? Well what is on it?
>No thank you, my son already has a Mario. I'd like to return it.
kek. not to mention the mk8 sales have already dropped off.
There's a difference between handhelds and consoles.
The 3DS has no major competition. There's the Vita, but its market is small. Therefore there's no core multiplats that the standard gamer expects to play.
The WiiU is up against two other, more popular consoles AND PC. Furthermore the WiiU isn't getting the core multiplats that people aren't actually interested in - GTA, Fallout, Elder Scrolls, Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, Destiny, hell even the latest Call of Duty titles aren't listed for WiiU
Are actually interested in. I have no reason why my phone did that.
Regardless, my point still stands. The WiiU is missing key games that are pretty much expected by the standard gamer today.
And with a different architecture and significantly underpowered hardware, we can expect a lot more core multiplats to miss the WiiU this gen
I have a friend who owns two 3DSes and a 2DS. He only plays Mario and Brain Training, and has never owned a console, gaming PC, or other handheld.
This is the core market for the DS/3DS, children and casuals. Sadly actual gamers only make up a small percentage of it.
3DS has sold 44m, not 100m.
Anyway, xbone sold about 55k more than wii u in the US in June according to NPD. That's about how much wii u sold in Japan according to media create. As long as wii u outsold xbone in yurop, wii u got second place globally, way behind PS4.
Say it again anon. The more you say it, the more it will become real.
Most 3DS games are horrendously overrated and are often viewed as one of the weaker installments in their series.
The system itself offers last gen hardware and is region locked.
The 3DS is anything but "good taste"
Shhhhhhhhhhhhh!! There is some epic denial going on in this thread. Dont spoil the party.
Yup Xbox One is fucked unless Microsoft does something quick.
nope. The wii was a stroke of luck. It's back to gamecube era sales.
I've always said Nintendo needs to go handheld only. They make shitty consoles and the wii u sales prove that.
I'd argue that the standard gamer would already own a PC and would rather play any multiplats on the PC if possible.
>GTAV confirmed for PC
>Destiny confirmed for PC
>Kojima wants a PC release for MSGV
The console market's going to be much smaller once people realize that there are fuck all console exclusives.
Are you implying that the Gamecube was a shitty console?
someone got the xseed article where vgcharts was WAAAAAAAY off

People actually thought MK8 would have a meaningful change for the Pii U?
Let's put things into perspective by looking at actual reliable numbers from MC:
MK8's Launch Week (week 22 of 2014): Wii U - 19.312 units sold
Pikmin 3's Launch Week (week 28 of 2013): Wii U - 22.199 units sold
ONTO THE SECOND WEEK:
>Media Create Sales Week 29 2013 - SECOND Week Pikmin 3 was out:
Wii U - 14.280 units sold
>Media Create Sales Week 23 2014 - SECOND Week Mario Kart 8 was out:
Wii U - 13,766 units sold
Mario Kart 8 had a lower effect on Wii U sales than fucking Pikmin 3 did in Japan, that is fucking hilarious.
The situation in EU is even worse and NA's current market share cake is being devoured by the PS4 and XB1
The Wii U is fucking dead.
>tfw i had a gf during all those GC years so i just brought like 3 or 4 games
GF NEVER AGAIN.
But PC gaming and console gaming is also an entirely different experience
At the end of the day they compete within the same market. But unless you plan to self build then it's expensive.
And even if you do self build, you can always run into issues.
For example, after replacing my heat sink with a new one my air flow has become fucked up and now my GPU gets hotter than it used to. It's also rather noisy at times and produces a lot of heat.
Consoles take away that stress, you don't need to worry about maintenance and have it all done for you. And there's also a lot of console exclusive games that won't make their way to the PC.
It's why I'm an idort. But for people who can't afford that, or can't be arsed, I can see why a console is a viable alternative
In my opinion, the PS2 was a turning point.
It proved that not only could you be the weakest console, but that many people were no longer able to tell the difference.
It was also the first gen where a feature that had fucking nothing to do with video games (the DVD player) was a major selling point.
If you like Nintendo games, no.
If you're expecting much of anything on the third party, yes.
YOU FUCKED UP
Actually, if you get Mario Kart 8 now, some regions offer downloading a free game. The offer lasts until the 31st, so now would be the time to take advantage of it.
Other than that, there isn't too much available for the Wii U. W101, Pikmin, MK8, Rayman, DKCR, arguably Zelda if you haven't played it yet. The rest is promise of future games.
The xbox is looking to have the most interesting and varied exclusive titles, but it doesn't surprise me that the other consoles are selling more, sony have released in more countries and have spent more on advertising, the wii-u has had some very good releases.
I imagine once the halo bundle is announced in a few weeks-a month, then things will start kicking.
If they announce something good at gamescom, I could also imagine more people will be interested.
To be honest, the 360 was probably the least selling console of last gen anyway, it surprises me that more people didn't expect this anyway, with hardware failures accounting for a lot of the sales figures.
Exactly. The success of the PS2 hurted gaming.
It showed that you don't need to focus on the gaming part in order to be succesful. The PS2 did so well because of its DVD feature.
And the PS3 continued that with Bluray but suffered from the extraordinary high price. Other additions are the wish to create comminity hubs like PSN, the Miiverse or LIVE.
tldr: Casuals ruined
These threads make me giggle like a schoolgirl. I just love watching the fanboys squirm. Tee hee.
>We sold double amount of xbaxes dis teim
Holy fuck that makes it even worse!
the wii u has some insane deals.
Start buying a mk8 game and get free pikmen, then buy codes from ebay they are $15, make new club nintendo accounts and register the game there, get zelda and if you want mario.
I also got free game & wario and dr luigi from the awards and $20 eshop credit from all the games i have downloaded with codes.
Bayo, hyrule and devils third are coming.
I was going to buy a PS4 earlier this year, but makes no fucking sense, i will wait for some exclusives. The wii u will keep me busy until then.
>We sold double amount of xbaxes dis teim
>still couldn't outsell Wii U
>The Wii sold more than the PS3
>Therefore it's a better console
>Missinformasion in green text
>No Nintendo in the greentext
Seems like we found your friends over at Nintendo little boy.
I don't remember people here praising the Wii at all.
Maybe because people weren't into the stupid sale number shit back then. But the Wii also was kind of an embarassement of a console. See E3.
november, it's a bit further than most other releases.
>Nintendo is Doomed
>the WiiU is still here
>catching up a bit with MK8
>Hyrule Warriors and Bayo2 is nearing
>SmashU coming this winter
are you blind or just naturally dumb?
They've got quantum break being shown there, I imagine that halo will be big as well.
They've probably got a lot of sports games there though as well.
It would be nice to see whatever lionhead and rare are working on, but apparently it's still very early stages.
My mistake, I didnt read all of it, just the part where I saw missinformation and semi stopped there.
Jesus fucking shit.. its a fucking game cosnole guys... fuck me.
I got a ps4 via amazon(first unit I got was broke lol) why not preorder it somewhere so THIS doenst happen?
Nope. It's a timely reminder that wii u is already dead.
That's what those chinks get when they're trying to sell am underpowered piece of shit in 2014. Wii U could've been a brilliant console in 2002.
>Because it's been less than a year.
Did that mean shit when the PS3 and Wii came out a year after the 360
The wii blew past both in no time, the ps3 was in the state xbone is now
People are getting more tech savvy, especially the younger generations.
You can run into issues with consoles as well, look at the increasing number of refurbished console units. But at least with the PC you can replace the parts yourself.
You also need to do maintenance on home consoles by blowing the dust out, like you do with a PC.
Never did so with my PS3.
Still alive and kicking
No ultra fans blasting shit.
Im allergic to dust, so any dust inside already needs to stay there and not get in my space.
Yes there I do take it out to the curb and air blast it with a mask on.
>Bu-bu- Pii Poo is dead guys
>Still outselling Xbone
We all know that Nintendo won't discontinue the Wii U - Even if it would stop selling at all. Because discontinuing something also costs more money than its worth it because contracts and new risks.
No matter how the status is: The Wii U will keep getting Nintendo games and second party games for years. And its not like the lack of third party is a loss. Many publishers would just release old games or dumbed down version of new games there because inferior hardware.
>i am an exception

>Downloads tied down to console
No really just let the wii u die. No one wants it other than fat neckbeards. Poor sales is the best thing that can happen to Nintendo. They need to go handheld only.
Ideas will wither and die if the only people who like them are NEETs on an anime image board. Most people don't even care about ideas, they just want to watch shitty reality TV and eat mcdonalds.
I have a lot of normalfag friends and hide my power level
Any of them remotely interested in gaming are on about the PS4 or Xbox, I have never heard anyone talk about the WiiU in real life
I got a vita for free, and is not bad if you already have a bunch of psn games. It's a cool emulating machine. MGS2 on it is sweet
Wouldn't pay for one, though. Not enough unique games.
Take it outside, use airspray and clean it up.
However there might have been alterations to the zink in your cpu/gpu/chipset.
Most commonly at the cpu.
You might want to remove it, and reapply some new fresh GOOD GRADE zink.
Might want some new fans too,
Well... thats kinda sad, but I get it.
>XBone NA EU
>NA EU JP
>XBone still winning
>OP has nerves of nitendium
Pic related OP and his edgy fedora
Well, the DS was just about the best selling game console of all time, around a million behind the PS2.
Mobile gaming has definitely done its damage, kids that would have asked for a 3DS now want an iPad come christmas and what have you.
>selling in Japan
The 360 sells 200 a week there, what makes you think its successor would do any better. Japan doesn't want gaijin crap
You mean thermal paste? I was using stock for a year before switching to Artic Silver something apparently it's good quality.
My fan is a coolshark something but I only use the one. My casing has my PSU and GPU at the bottom and I have no side fan, but I'm thinking of getting a side fan panel replacement
>I don't like kiddie crap
Sony land, eh
Seriously what the fuck are you on?
The Wii U IS INDEED DOOMED. Nintendo as a whole is fine because I think the Wii U is still profitable (not sure though, too lazy to google, it probably is though since it uses nothing but tech from 10 years ago and is sold for 250 fucking bucks), and the 3DS prints money since day one. Nintendo also has Pokemon which is still huge.
Back to the original topic of Wii U being doomed, you have to consider that Wii U has its biggest system sellers out already, that being 3D Mario, 2D Mario, and Mario Kart. Despite that, it still can't outsell the PS4 which has nothing but shitty multiplats. When the PS4 inevitably starts getting all the japanese support (MGS5, FFXV, and all the weeaboo exclusives that were PS3 exclusives last gen, such as Tales, Miku, Disgaea, Persona) and huge exclusives (such as TLOU Rehashed, Uncharted 4, GT, etc) it will completely obliterate the Wii U in sales worldwide.
Finally, by doomed I mean that it will end up in third place (around 30million sales at best when PS4 and Bone will exceed 70m) with no third party support and pretty much nothing but the usual nintendo sequels and the occasional third party bribe exclusive (which probably will depend on the success of Bayonetta 2, if that bombs I don't think Nintendo will invest again in projects like this).
Feel free to reply with shitposts now, you know I'm right anyway.
Feed it attention with a banana because this fucking chimp doesn't know shit about the industry.
>Japan doesn't want gaijin crap
>mfw its porn, celebs and virtually all art is of caucasian bone structures
>literally draw nothing but white people art
>we dont like white people!
I don't know why they care so much anyway. Like I said it will get all the various Mario sequels and rehashes, and it's pretty well known that they don't buy third party and only buy Nintendo for the exclusives (see the blundering of W101 which is actually a pretty good game that deserved to do well).
So yeah, why do you care so much about sales, Nintendo fans? You'll still get your library of stale Mario sequels regardless of how many sales it gets, and you don't care about third party.
Not selling as well as the 3DS and the PS4 doesn't mean it'a a failure. The Gamecube sold less than the PS2 by a wide margin, yet it was able to net a profit for Nintendo. As long as it has fun games, it'll be fine.
>The Wii U IS INDEED DOOMED.
Repeat after me....
Wii U IS DOOMED
Wii U IS DOOMED
Wii U IS DOOMED
Wii U IS DOOMED
>my console is better because my company of choice profited more out of me
>mfw xbox one is going to be like the original xbox and have glorious titles
The golden age of the ogbox and the gamecube v2 have just entered.
Wii U is dead, m8.
I don't give a shit about your delusions, the truth here is that no dev or publisher is going to make games for a failed system.
The Wii U is
1. Expensive to dev for because requires unique programming compared to PS4, Xbone and PC which are all similar.
2. Does not guarantee profit because Nintendo fags only buy Mario as proven time and time again (just see W101, or Batman Origins which had to cancel the DLC due to abysmal sales).
3. Limiting to the development process due to outdated hardware.
Making games for Wii U is retarded, and the fact that the poor thing has less third party support than the fucking ENN SIXTY FOUR EVEN IN JAPAN proves me right.
Doomed to last place is a pretty okay kind of doomed. People still buy all those rehashes and with software and shit the Wii U is still making Nintendo money.
If I was a company I wouldn't mind being doomed to make money even if I was also doomed to rethink my future strategy a bit beyond the Wii U if I wanted to preserve market share or increase it.
>Shitposting instead of actual arguments.
You'll see in a couple of years anyway.
>People still buy all those rehashes and with software and shit the Wii U is still making Nintendo money.
Problems will come in the long run as Nintendo will fade to irrelevancy. Iwata knows this and that's why he's going to focus on QoL devices on the side of video games. I think that will be too late, Samsung has already jumped on that bandwagon with the Galaxy S4 and it's S-Health, S5 and Note 3 are only focusing on that more and more and it is working.
>or Batman Origins which had to cancel the DLC
>cancelling stuff they already made, that is nothing but pure profit, because sales are doing so bad
how can you claim a console is doing even okay, when a major AAA games cancels its FREE fucking money aspect because it was doing THAT BAD
Yes, the fans are clogged with dust and the GPU gets hot as fuck.. In critical cases, the PC will actually underperform because systems in place will limit the power output related to the temperatures, to avoid it getting burned out.
Take out the GPU, take out the CPU fan, and clearn those very thorougly. You should also screw out the CPU fan itself from the box thing, so you can remove the dust on the inside of the fan, which is most likely what causes the noise in most cases.
And do that at the very least every 6 months bare minimum. Do not let it accumulate for years, or it will take 10 times the time to clean it up properly.
It literally takes 10 minutes after you've done it the first time.
It wasn't made already, like I said before Wii U requires unique programming. The game sold so poorly they preferred to not even start on the DLC, and that refunding all the season passes (all 3 of them probably) was going to lose less money than getting the DLC out.
Please don't call it the Gamecube 2
The Gamecube was a good powered, no gimmick system with fresh first party experience
The WiiU is an underpowered, gimmick relying system with nothing but Mario and Zelda
i have a question for you Sony faggots, since 60% of this thread is full of doomsayers and falseflaggers and i will make it simple for you to understand since guys can't read a Xbone/WiiU article.
don't even give me that "NintendoGAF" crap, /v/ gets flooded by anything anytime (Steam announcement, Smash reveal, a new Rockstar game, etc.)
Would /v/ be better off if Nintendo fans or Xbox fans were not allowed here?
Just to give you another pity reply, I'm not xbot but idort with common sense.
I'll get the Wii U eventually, maybe when the Cobra UDE or WiiKeU come out, just like I did with the Wii when the twilight hack was discovered.
>What's the point of a post like this?
I'm laughing at you and all the fanboys infesting this thread with damage control, when the numbers are right there for everyone to see.
The Xbox One and the Vita are the consoles that are in deep shit
Wii U is in deep shit as well. Have fun playing nothing but a lazily done first party sequel every 3 months or so. Also I think this thread is about Wii U and not Vita.
Also Xbone is doing better than Wii U.
mustards need to go, pc+ wii/3ds and pc only owners are the biggest shitposters by far.
nintendrones and sonyggers are completely the same but in mine experience it's really the mustards that derail thread after thread.
I'd say smash and zelda 2015 are DEFINITELY system sellers that are not out yet. When smash comes out, I'm getting one for that title alone, and I know I'm not the only one. There are many people who have told me the same thing but for the new Zelda.
>Tell me how you really feel.
Says the Wii U owner in full catastrophe control and post purchase realization mode.
Wii U is another N64, except without good games and good hardware.
>mustards need to go, pc+ wii/3ds
I own a gaming PC and a 3DS and even I can tell you that's complete bullshit. Some of the most praised games on that thing are garbage and overhyped like FE:A and Pokemon X&Y
>Wii U is in deep shit as well.
>I am the bone of my sword.
>Steel is my body, and fire is my blood.
>I have created over a thousand blades.
>Unknown to death, nor known to life.
>Have withstood pain to create many weapons.
>Yet, those hands will never hold anything.
>So, as I pray...Wii U is doomed..
Yeah they're fucking system sellers. Did you see how many people were at the invitational and best buy smash fests? /v/ is going to look pretty stupid for a minute when smash drops. Zelda comes second so a lot of people who picked up for smash will just get Zelda then but there will be some people holding out until there are multiple games they want so that's something too. We also still have Metroid, Star Fox, and F-Zero to wait for. The Wii U is going to be pretty alright
multiplats do count, even if you don't like it.
wii u has no multiplats and ps4 has the best console multiplats by far.
>but they're also on pc
People still prefer gaming on consoles and thats why the ps4 is winning so easily.
278 vs 415
And they had a 2 year head start.
No devs, jap or otherwise want to ever touch this blunder of a ass backward system anymore.
What the fuck? Can you even read? I never said that the WiiU was better. It just isn't doomed seeing as it's only behind two of the most successful platforms ever. Holy shit, why do I post here? Gamers are fucking retarded. Forget the Jews, I hope Hitler's reincarnation gases every gamer.
then the board will become munsterchain with Reddit elitists.
>mustards need to go, pc+ wii/3ds and pc only owners are the biggest shitposters by far.
go make a Nintendo thread about Splatoon and the NoA memefaggot and see what happens.
you will get load of Reddit falseflaggers and Sony faggots shitting on Nintendo fans. With a side of Ruggarell
Ok, you can stop. We know who's behind these posts.
>I'd say smash and zelda 2015 are DEFINITELY system sellers that are not out yet.
Anyone with a brain knows that. By the way, this thread is not for you, its a containment thread for Xbot tears.
It sure was when the PS3 had no games and shit multiplats.
Then the 360 became a Kinect box and just gave up.
>Biggest system seller
>Did jack shit
Why do you expect a much smaller game to change anything? Smash is nowhere near as big as MK.
Zelda sales have been declining horribly so that game is not going to do anything period.
Get off you fucking botttomfeeder of a leech.
If it does sell 10mill, it'd be the same with the ps2, then I'd be confident it might be the next ps2, we'll just have to wait for tgs and see, especially now that the ps4 is x86 it's more dev friendly and we can expect more games from them
I have a vita and a 3ds and I bought them for games.
I don't care how many people bought them since they get both more games I am interested in, so it's fine with me if they sell like shit or if everyone else has one.
Why can't are you fighting over sales numbers anyways since most of those people are the guys you call normalfags and make fun of?
>mk8 sales are already fading
check again broham
Let's chant all together Xbots
Wii U is doomed
Wii U is doomed
Wii U is doomed
Wii U is doomed
Wii U is doomed
You're just salty that the system you bought on an impulse at launch is worthless.
Get over it and stop wasting time getting asspained.
ps2 sold the most because it had exclusives which would be multiplats nowadays.
It also doubled as a dvd player.
Gaming in general is selling more nowadays, but the ps4 will never be as successful as the ps2.
Yet MK sold more than twice as much as Brawl did on Wii.
Smash is not as big as MK and like I said MK did nothing despite the competition having pretty much nothing. PS4 outsold the Wii U to death with a shitty multiplat alone. Just imagine how big the difference will be when it actually gets something that moves system like Uncharted or GT.
>wanting Reddit users here
>have hours of use out of my Wii U
>barely use my PS3/360 or PC
>yahtzee mustard rice crying over how great EA is
>will never ever play Bayonetta 2
Except when your console conveniently breaks a week after warranty and the only ones who can fix it are a Japanese rocket scientist or the tweaker down the street that lives in his uncle's garage
nobody praised the sales of the Wii because they didn't have very good games to talk about on it. Same reason /v/ doesn't praise the PS4, it has no good games to talk about. The only ones saying good things about the PS4 right now are hardcore Sony fanboys.
will you look at that!
It amuses me that sony and nintendo fans will never EVER be able to play Kamiya's greatest masterpiece.
Your post implies that you haven't finished grammar school. How the fuck did you learn English? The Final Fantasy VIII intro sequence?
if we assume that nintendo truely sells the 3.7 million consoles it expects to, by the end of the year, ( sales 20-30% higher then the FIRST year wii u was out )
20% of EVERY wii u owner buys a copy of mk8
then it will of sold a little bit more then mario kart super circuit for the Game Boy Advance
the lowest selling mario kart game in history
>no good games
probably the same fags who say this and then emulate the shit out of wii games.
First off, let me tell you that I'm a major 4chan addict.
/mu/ has given me a lot of good music to listen to
/a/ has given me quite a few high-quality torrent links and wallpapers
/v/ is full of video game tips (well it is when I go on)
/r9k/ is a great place to rant about your day and other stuff that's on your mind
/pol/ is a great place to discuss what's on your mind about politics
Hell, even /b/ can teach you something if you go into the occasional info thread.
But, despite the stereotype that all 4chan users hate Reddit, I'm just as addicted to Reddit as I am to 4chan.
/r/atheism - despite some unsavory threads blocking up the area, it's a good place for discussions about things like the universe.
/r/dolan - if the only phrase you laugh at is "gooby pls" then this board is for you.
/r/imgoingtohellforthis - this board makes me glad that i'm not the only one who enjoys tasteless, obscene, and otherwise offensive humor.
I believe it's ok to browse both sites.
>being dead last, isnt losing
mfw you pull out shit like the ouya to show your not last place
mfw we are doing better then the ouya is evidence of not being a failure
>Certainly we've had tough times before, but the numbers have never been as bad as they are now.
Even Miyamoto thinks the WiiU was a huge mistake.
Losing some dick-measuring contest, maybe.
But that's different than profitability.
Much like how the PS3 was second in sales in its gen, but was a massive loss for Sony financially.
>mk8 might do better then a 13 year old gameboy advance game
VGChartz is known for guessing in general.
If the only problem was that it only counted physical sales, then that wouldn't be a problem. People are fine with NPD info and that only counts physical too.
VGChartz specific problem is that it's massively guess work. They're sometimes revise their old numbers once NPD and the like release theirs, but a lot of it is still way off.
While MK8 is selling well its also the ONLY Wii U game selling well
If you look at total software sales the Wii U is floundering
who cares, we got Bayo2 and W101, you guys got your own share. can't be greedy here.
Sony fans are the ones crying because their game, MGR, was ported to PC, plus they are still butthurt about Kamiya comment on the PS4 incapability to do backwards compatibility and how Bayo1 do on the PS3.
>Is Sony getting scared of Nintendo?
>Although Sony's plan to steal away Wii gamers seems silly, it inadvertently reveals Sony's fear of Nintendo's recent gains.
>For the week ending on July 5, Mario Kart 8 was the top-selling game in the U.S. and the entire world. The game has already sold more than 2 million copies since the end of May, and helped Wii U sales climb to 6.6 million units. The Wii U still trails the 8.4 million PS4s that Sony has sold, but it remains comfortably ahead of Microsoft's Xbox One, which last reported sales of 4.8 million.
>In conclusion, Sony is clearly getting rattled by Nintendo's big gains -- otherwise, it wouldn't need to try to "welcome back" gamers who were never theirs to begin with.
Sony is getting scared anon.
What gimmick is Nintendo gonna steal for the their new current gen console?
last time I checked people were saying TLOU or GTA V were goty 2013. But if it's your personal goty I don't really care since mine was Ys MoC and I don't state this as a fact like you do
this is copypasta, get the fuck out predditor, you are only here to falseflag and shitpost.
>>Although Sony's plan to steal away Wii gamers seems silly, it inadvertently reveals Sony's fear of Nintendo's recent gains.
Jesus fuck, these people read into things all the wrong ways.
The "Wii audience" statement just meant that the PS4s success has given them an audience that didn't all have PS3s (since Nielsen released a study showing 50% of all PS4 owners didn't have a PS3, 33% of all PS4 owners having had a 360 or Wii but not PS3). "Wii audience" was just an off hand term for "people who didn't have a PS3 last generation but might consider buying a PS4". I agree it's not the best wording he could of used, but it doesn't mean "WE WILL TAKE ALL OF THE WII OWNERS"
This always happens with Nintendo so there's nothing to be scared about. Sony is being stupid as usual.
Nintendo fans literally had nothing to play for months before MK8, so it's only natural that it sold amazingly. They should just bring some more big exclusives to the PS3 to keep their lead.
No loadouts, "arena multiplayer"
Welp, looks like GOTY 2015 is already confirmed
>I am not a redditor, look at all the boards I go and ruin.
not those guys, but
>mfw this is an argument about how the wii u has no games
>his argument was that the wii u had GOTY`s
>links a page of GOTY`s
>read the page
>ctrl + f wii u
>one is mass effect 3
>wii u has literally just 2 GOTYs
>one is a multiplay
>2015 could be a very bad year for the Wii U in terms of sales
Psst, hey c'mere.
Mario Kart 7 is still selling 3DSes
Looks like insomniac have abandoned sony with their latest hit
WELL WELL, LOOK WHO JOIN THE SHITPOSTING FRAY
>some fucking redditor
now Ruggashit, get ready for alot of falseflags and smug anime girl posting that will ruin you taste of your favorite anime
Judging from Wii sales of games, yes.
Mario Kart Wii sold 34 Millions and it's the best selling Wii game excluding Wii Sports which was bundled with every Wii.
Brawl sold 12 Millions, New Super Mario Bros Wii sold 27 Millions, Zelda TP sold 7 (Uncharted 2 also sold around 7) and SS sold less than 4.
Nope. That would be a new mario in the SAME year. Nintendo could just slapped some level together into their old games and called it new.
Mario yearly rehash is just as bad as call of duty rehash.
>nintendos BEST game
>is selling less then 3 times more then minecraft
>on its 3 months
>to a game thats been out 3 years
SMK was the third best selling SNES game.
MK64 was the second best selling N64 game.
MKDD is either the best selling or second best selling GameCube game.
Mario Kart Wii is the second best selling Wii game (but considering the best seller is Wii Sports which was bundled with almost every Wii sold, that's essentially the best selling individual Wii game)
Super Circuit is the fourth best selling GBA game.
MKDS is the third best selling DS game.
MK7 is the second best selling 3DS game.
In terms of raw numbers per title, Mario Kart is one of Nintendo's strongest titles. Smash Bros. is potentially bigger though. The first game sold less than MK64, but Melee sold about the same as Double Dash. Brawl sold less than MKWii, but MKWii was a ridiculous success that probably won't be replicated again any time soon.
sonyggers and xboners are probably right ninchildos. The wii u is dead, nintendo is not.
Still the wii u is a great console, will get great fucking games so no complains about it.
What i dont like is that, this time, unlike the gamecube, nintendo didnt make this one powerful. If only a bunch of people were going to buy this console, then at least they could have done it right.
Fuck the viral marketing. They don't even talk about the game. Its the same guy talking about how he is having a "fun". Not even describing the gameplay, just "fun".
>Holy shit, /v/! This game is fun! Oh man, I'm downloading this for the weekend! I can't wait to have fun! Heres an abundant number of beta keys. Getting PS4 just for this is worth it. Everybody post your favored weapon. Mines the AUX. I love the way it shoots.
I honestly cannot believe this shit. Surely Minecraft has to have hit full saturation by now. Surely every kid and autist who would have bought has bought it. Shit, I thought it hit saturation during alpha and that was why Notch made it so you had to buy twice. Who is STILL buying Minecraft?
>fully destructible city environments
Only on the xbox one with cloud power.
With the current trend, MK8 could easily break 3 million sales by the end of this summer and 4 million by the end of this year and still go strong in 2015.
you can shitpost all you want, this is the simple truth
> Even with no game sold.
Keep believing those lies toddler. It's hilariously obvious that it isn't, they needed to sell multiple games for it to be profitable BEFORE the price drop, but yes I'm sure they just magicked away all that hardware cost.
>In terms of raw numbers per title, Mario Kart is one of Nintendo's strongest titles. Smash Bros. is potentially bigger though
It seems to me that most people interested in it are veterans of the series. I doubt it'll be anywhere near as big as a game with casual appeal like MK.
Breaking all new ideas in games, microsoft are the true innovators.
lol, thats my point
the lowest sales ever
of a mario kart game
the consoles best game
is in its own field
unlikely to break its own worst sales
>b-but t-thats a lot
a fucking gameboy advance game has a good chance of outselling your consoles motherfucking defining game
So Mario Kart 8 wont have legs? I
s this the next Wii U is doomed meme?
Bringing classic series to life, only for the xbox.
but anon, NSMB and SM3D already came out and most of the Mario sports games are done. We won't be getting more until the next console.
plus Captain Toad, M vs. DK, and Mario Maker are NOT new mario games.
Mario Maker is a level editor that was requested by Mario fans who wants a official level editor since NSMB don't have one. Plus it involves older 2D/2.5D mario games.
Captain Toad looks like SM3DW but the game doesn't involve jumping or Mario himself.
Mario vs. DK is a sequel, not new.
>a mario game
Fanboys of a dying console are always the most delusional and desperate.
It was like that when the Saturn tanked and it's happening again now that he WiiU tanked.
>they needed to sell multiple games for it to be profitable BEFORE the price drop
yeah, because sony was making a full 60 bucks off each game, instead of maybe 1-3 bucks
>theres NO way they lowered the cost of of ps4 production by 15 bucks in 2 years!
Wii U sales are weird as fuck. It's hard to tell what sells on it
Okay, it's just that if you do list games like Xenoblade X, it makes your argument look stronger as it's a massive sci-fi, open world RPG and people love that shit
plus it helps to mention titles that aren't 'typically' Nintendo like Xenoblade X, Bayonetta 2, Devils Third, and (fingers crossed) Fatal Frame V, and show people that there's more to Nintendo than just Toad, Yoshi and Kirby
>this image proves its doing good
lol. yeah, in a list where minecraft is 3rd, being in 1st place is REALLY impressive.
simply listing it was a top seller means fuck all. guess what else had a top seller?
every console that failed
My little anon can't be this retarded.
Those numbers are Wii U units not software units.
The whole point was that MK8 in Japan had a smaller impact on Wii U sales thank Pikmin 3 did.
Too bad, greed got in the way and they proceed to jew out their userbase to oblivion. What the hell happened? I once think that ms could be the one who will topple sony domination one day. They have almost unlimited money in the bank and some of the most brilliant minds in microsoft. Now, they're just a company hell bent on pushing their profit even at the cost of their userbase numbers.
Bundling a game console with an accesory that no one really use? Smart move, MS.
A metroidvania experience, gameplay and art.
>there will never bee another gen as good as the 5th and 6th
Could hell be any worse?
>calling the tablet shitty
just wait, Sony is gonna make their own variation and the fanboys are gonna slobber all around it like the PS Move.
somebody post that picture where some fanboys laugh at the Nintendo wii remote and later they advertise their own version
I can tell you right now.. thats ban worthy.
Hope you behind a proxy
It doesn't, it's already dropped and it failed to sell any consoles.
Mario Kart 8 didn't save the Wii U, it confirmed its death. This is the biggest title it's ever going to get and what does it have to show for it? Nothing, it's still last behind consoles with few games and only beating the PS4 by 1k weekly despite having all of its main sellers out.
MK8 gave the Wii U its biggest non-holiday boost, and even now that sales have evened out, they're still double on what it was earlier in the year, which is double what it was the year before. It's doing a lot better comparitively.
Poor Nintendo. *sniff* *sniff* anon-kun said MK8 wont have legs. *sniff*
Didn't Mario Kart drop in June?
I'm not trying to say that those sales don't count for the Wii U cause a big IP was pushing software but shouldn't regular sales be the indicator of long term success for a console?
I hope Nintendo cans this POS and actually tries next time they decide to make a console.
>people said Gamecube was going to fail because of PS2 and Xbox
>still went on with no problem
>NeoGAF said the GBA was going to fail because of PSP
>DS surpassed PSP
>GBA still went on until 2008 without a problem
>not utter shit
It wouldnt be bad.. as long as they copy every network infrastructure the other two lads go(except for paying lol).
That and priceses for the hardware have mellowed out and Nintendo can come with a more powerfull machine then ps4 and xbone combined.
Granted this is all wishfull thinking and I predict a 5% chance of it happening.
>just wait, Sony is gonna make their own variation and the fanboys are gonna slobber all around it like the PS Move.
They did... its the vita jkjk
But in fairness you can use the vita or any tablet such as an ipad with the PS@pp.
