I have assigned to you one day for each year its punishment will last.
Too bad DmC didn't get a post-launch marketing push. They could've rode on those positive reviews.

What a shame.
 
Well, at least the WiiU seems to be succeeding somewhat in NA if the numbers are true. Probably doesn't make up for Europe and Japans bomba numbers, but still

I want to see 3DS and Vita numbers

Correction to previous tweets: CUMULATIVE three-month Wii U sales are down 38% vs. Wii's first three months on the market. Apologies!

It means that Wi U did quite well, PS3 sold 244k in its first January over 4 weeks.
Also Microsoft is NOT including Wii U in their number.
Current systems must be the usual 360,Wii,PS3.
I had to ask because, it didn't seem right! At least according to all the predictions and muttering that was going on. Thanks for clearing that up! That's impressive!

Edit: heh
 
Why would Microsoft specify "current gen" unless they were indeed not counting the Wii U? It sounds better to say "all console sales" because that is what it would be.

Edit: posted that before the correction. Journalism at its finest.
 
Cumulative 3-month sales would make January...55k? That sounds pretty far off in the other direction. But...who knows? The Wii U has been doing worse than Gamecube so far, and the Gamecube's 3rd month, 1st January, was 59k.
