The problem with your analogy is we've long since realized the Wii U is a console for Nintendo fans both faithful and returning. Except for those who are simply interested in pointing out how dead it is every month I don't think most realists paying attention to the industry have those kinds of expectations.Imagine the sequel of Lost putting worse numbers than The Good Wife, wouldn't be that quite bad?
That's the scenario we are looking there, YoY is meaningful for Nintendo if they can't make the Wii U sold accodingly to their expectations....
Most games sale come from those 2 days.
lol @ people trying to judge the MK8 bump to Wii U sales off of the two fucking days of sales data that were counted.
let it die man D:
Sales of the Wii U console quadrupled the week after the release of Mario Kart 8, compared to the week prior, Fils-Aime said.
It's almost always bullshit. However, Nintendo titles are usually slighty less frontloaded than most AAA games. The fact that the Wii U userbase is small and hardcore kinda negates that though.For those who're keeping track, how often does the "[game] was only out for xx days!" argument have held up in subsequent NPDs?
It's almost always used in some fashion, and as far as I can remember it rarely comes to pass.
Welp, the PS4 as primary and Wii U as companion console is shaping up to be the flavor of the generation.
