    Apparently, WiiU outsold XBox One in launch frame

    http://www.videogamer.com/news/3_06_...r_31_2012.html

    http://www.engadget.com/2014/01/06/xbox-one-3-million/

    Kind of interesting info to look at, I thought. Puts a frame of reference on things up to this point.

    This is probably the dumbest thing to put in any perspective lol.

    So, a console that launched over a year ago, has sold more than a console that hasn't been out two months yet. Holy bat $#@!!!!!

    Oh yes there were. I have yet to see a store in my area that had no Wii U consoles for sale. On Christmas Eve, both Walmart and Target had Wii U consoles available.

    The WiiU sold 3million in the same period? I thought that's the total they had YTD?

    It's the verbiage. 3M is the YTD for XBone in 2013. 3.06M is the YTD for WiiU in 2012.

    What matters is whether or not a console can continue to sell a good amount of units. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Wii U's best month being something like 480k units sold in December 2013 is lower than the GameCube's lowest December sales. The Wii U is selling poorly for Nintendo whereas the Xbox One sold as much as it did while being priced higher than its competitor and coming with Kinect.

    We are comparing 3.06 million units to "over 3million" units. Go figure.

    I wish there were some actual game to play. Im working my way through my back catalog, and no one really wants to know how IM doing on Castlevania:LOS. , or how $#@! I think Bioshock Infinite is.

    Or maybe they do?

    The 'What Game Are you Playing now' is the best thread for that.

    Thread can be closed. MS fiscals show 3.9 million units sold as 31st Dec.

    According to the latest reports + Neogaf commentary:

    MSFT shipped 3.9 million XBones but sells 3 million.
    Sony shipped 4.2 million PS4s and sells 4.2 million.
    Where does that put the WiiU in a similar time frame?

    I dunno if that matters.

    Not sure if it matters even if the Wii U sold more (say month per month at this stage during both launches) - it has failed to sell much more than that.

    Closing the thread.
