Apparently sales were not all that great in the states only selling 700,000 consoles (still a decent amount but not for america) I really do not see the appeal in the wii-u, but that is just me personally*shrugs*i was never a wii fan to begin with even though i had 2 consoles.

The WiiU sales were actually only 400000, the other 300000 were wiis! Not a good sign.

The fact that noone is talking about them now also isnt a good sign, unless they're so awesome that all the people who bought one are busy playing games.

Mines updating and I'm working so can't really play it yet. That and I have to wait until next week to grab a pro controller and ZombiU. I will say though, the black console sure does attract dust.
