"Gamasutra source says that the Wii U sold "well under" 100,000 units. Nintendo previously announced that it sold 460,000 systems in December, suggesting that demand has dropped off considerably among customers who hadn't already decided to buy the console at launch."
"DEMAND HAS DROPPED OFF CONSIDERABLY"
"Microsoft, meanwhile, announced that the Xbox 360 sold 281,000 units last month"
I remember watching the Wii-U Giantbomb stream, and felt really bummed. It wasn't even the stupidly giant launch patch. It was mostly Nintendo sticking to old school anti costumer decisions like fixing your profile and digital purchases to hardware! wtf! its 2013, haven't they understand the world has move on forward, Is the way internet works really so hard for them to understand!?
