Since its debut last month, Nintendo’s new Wii U console has surpassed the launch sales of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
In a span of four weeks of being on the market, Nintendo has sold over 1.8 million Wii U consoles. In that same amount of time, Microsoft sold 940,000 Xbox 360 consoles, and Sony shipped 540,000 PlayStation 3 consoles.
For comparison’s sake, in its first four weeks on sale, 2.07 million Wii consoles were sold in 2006.
Nice sentiment on this fine holiday, but alas it's untrue. Look at sales of N64 and GCN. They lost the lead during that era.Nintendo have always been the leader when it comes to sales.
Yes, true. I don't think Nintendo has really lead the pack since the SNES days. But N64 and GCN were pretty underrated.Originally Posted by morbidcowboy
Both the N64 and GCN were excellent consoles on my opinion. I spent more time on those than on the Wii.

Next to the SNES, GCN is my favorite system. I did love N64 though, hard to beat Super Mario 64, GoldenEye 007, Lego Racers the Zeldas and all the other titles I'm forgettingOriginally Posted by Red_Gh0st
I never actually played DK64...but I did love the heck out of the DKC gamesOriginally Posted by kunparekh18
Wii U launch price is much more competitive than its rivals were.
I remember when the PS3 launched in Australia, the price was set
And I'm pretty sure the Xbox 360 launched at around the $680 mark.
Nintendo in comparison, are far more competitive this time around.
Learned a lesson from the 3DS launch sales I'd say.
Definitely, I think here in USA PS3 was only $600 but still that is pretty expensive. Of course Sony excused that by stating how it is also a Blu-Ray player lol.
I can't wait to get my hands on a Deluxe WiiU one day.
