I hear ya. I think the Wii U launch is different than any other launch in history because now the Wii U has caught up to the capabilities of PS3 and XBox 360. The Wii U launch isn't like XBox or PS3 (I think PS3 would have sold more if it wasn't always sold out). When a consumer has these 3 choices, they are still overwhelmingly picking the other two systems. Why is this?

I think it's going to be VERY interesting how next-gen Sony and Microsoft systems are next year because I have that same thought: what in the world, other than graphics, can the next-gen systems do to compel us to support the new systems? I think especially if digital games we purchased this generation on the aren't compatible on the next-gen systems, that could to a turnoff as there's nothing wrong with the current stores and they don't need an upgrade.

I understand your approach. I suppose if you look at it solely at revenue then it's a good thing. I truly just don't want to see my favorite company that I've invested so much money in have a console that doesn't convince third parties to put good content on the system, because it takes more than just Nintendo games to make a good console. The next 3 months or so don't look good software-wise. I sure hope that changes fast.

You don't think avoiding the 468K has a point? The Wii U was Nintendo's least selling platform in December and the lowest of the big three with stock available, so there wasn't a supply constraint. The Wii U also sold less than a $600 PS3 in 2006. As much as I love Nintendo, there's no defending it, this is not that good.

And how can you praise $30 more revenue than Wii launch when the Wii U is $50-$100 more?

You're kidding me, right? Why does this article fail to mention that Nintendo sold just 460k units in the U.S. in what is supposed to be the busiest shopping month of the year? For comparison, the XBox 360, in its 8th December, sold 1.4 million. There was not a Wii U supply constraint, and the Wii even outsold the Wii U.
