@ben- I don't, much like nobody knows if they actually will make any money on it. It's all very well saying Nintendo paid the last 2 Million to fund it, something a citation wouldn't go amiss on but don't forget how much Platinum have put into this game over it's production run, 40,000 copies isn't that great to be honest, and 24,000 for Fatal Frame, even less so, sure a game doesn't need to sell a million copies to be considered profitable / successful but less than 100,000 copies could certainly be seen as less than stellar.

Don't forget that Wii U games in particular don't stay in the charts for very long so it's entirely possible that Bayo 2 only sells 100,000 copies in it's lifetime in Japan. Fatal Frame and even Hyrule Warriors are in the same boat, a big company like Nintendo are used to ever-green selling titles like all those Wii and DS games that kept selling and selling, something I'm not seeing from the Wii U, at all.

Again, love the U, it's just the harsh reality of it.

@ben- I didn't bring Sony into it.... As far as I'm aware, losing money is the same which ever way you look at it. You could lose £1000 or £1,000,000 - if it's business, you're still not making the money required to keep a company successful in the long run.

I love the Wii U, I'm just saying that the proof is in the pudding that others don't.

Hmmm..... Things aren't looking particularly great for the Wii U are they?
I really expected Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 2 and Fatal Frame to boost the Wii U to Destiny PS4 launch week totals. People really don't like the Wii U and to be fair, without 3rd party support, who can blame them?

2015 I'm pretty sure brings no major 3rd party support to the machine and that leaves Nintendo just solely supporting their machine with Indies picking up the slack digitally, why Nintendo aren't co-publishing big titles and using Nintendo Direct to advertise the eShop indie stuff is just painful to watch.

I love my Wii U but I can also see when it's time to cut the lost cause, the 3DS is keeping Nintendo in a relatively safe position currently, but the home console? Could be time to ditch it and move on... I'm looking forward to Yoshi Yarn, Xenoblade, Star Fox and all the other glorious Nintendo games but I can't help but feel they would have a greater impact as launch titles for a new Nintendo home console rather than the Wii U that is just sucking resources and is pretty much Nintendo's 21st century Virtual Boy.

FourBs commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Expo Banner Raises Q...:

It could very well be coming to Wii U and that could be a double-sided poster, behind the poster is the Wii U section, isn't it? Also the colouring of blue is usually associated with Wii U and red for 3DS. - If I was to look too much into it / wishful think.

But yeah, chances are is isn't coming, pretty sure Capcom even said they weren't happy with bringing it to Wii U...

I'd be interested if I didn't have pretty much everything in the Wii U's library to complete first.

Once it goes into a sale I'd be quite keen but I'd sooner have had Dirt on Wii U. Still, if enough people buy this I guess!

FourBs commented on Fresh 2013 UK Hardware Sales Figures Keep 3DS ...:

I convinced two of my friends to go out and buy new Wii U's so I guess I have them to thank towards that uptake in sales. As long as the console keeps a year on year increase, it should be okay - nothing stellar; but okay, at least.

I'm not sure I totally agree with a lot of the statements that cite the Wii U selling terribly.... Sure, it doesn't sell half as well as Nintendo expected but Christmas has actually been quite kind to the U and there's no reason to think that it won't continue to tick over in the light of the software that's coming.

I honestly hope this is a real leak. Nintendo need their other franchises from here on in, not just Mario.

That controller looks like a 360 controller but the blue light indicates it maybe a Wii U Pro Controller, I guess..
