    you guys do realize that the xbox 360 and ps3 have been on the market for years... 6 or so, so it makes sense that nintendo would have sold more units, but to compare the wii u to those console doesn't really say much.

    Nintendo attracts the average parent because of the non-violent games it promotes. Consider the price difference of Nintendo products versus Sony and Microsoft. The sales obviously reek of children and chewed bubble gum stuck to my shoes.

    That's not entirely true, I know many people over the age of 18 who own Nintendo systems (including the Wii). Well they do pride themselves as a family gaming company they don't shun away hardcore or adult gamers. I'll admit the GC and Wii didn't have a good run of M or T games but they are changing that with the WiiU. Ratings don't really say much anyway though, if all E or K-A games were avoided because they're considered "kid games" think of how many classic titles we would've missed out on. Not just from Nintendo but from Sega & Sony too.

    How many people play Battlefield and Call of Duty on the Wii...? Lol. That's my case, and those games are built with the online community behind them which Nintendo completely lacks and fails at.

    Wii has 2 Call of Duty games :|
    Plus several other online games and FPS games. But I do agree with you, Nintendo's Wi-Fi service was terrible on Wii. It worked well on DS but for Wii it was bad. Supposedly they're doing better with WiiUs Wi-Fi service though.
