    quite nice to see WiiU performing best under the home consoles. Although things might change once there’s something huge coming out on PS4, but this seems to take a while anyway.

    • Zanzama

      Smash Bros might spice things up during the holidays

      • gerome

        mario kart was supposed to do that!. and before mario kart, super mario 3d world was supposed to do that, and before super mario 3d world, super mario bros u was supposed to do that. the market isn’t waiting for nintendo, the market is advancing outrageously fast and leaving nintendo behind. by the time smash bros comes out, some other technology or impressive game will take the spotlight and only a few million nintendo fans will care about it. the only way nintendo could have saved the wii u is if the wii u were made to match ps4 and x box one so that third party support could fill in the gaps while nintendo takes their time making games. wii u will be canceled soon, time will be cruel to wii u.

        • Keronos

          shitty troll is shitty

        • Rinslowe

          It doesn’t take a genius to see that considering the Japanese market for consoles of late. Combined with the average weekly sales of the Wii U console over the last 6 months. The past 3 weeks sales results have been quite good overall.

          What was Kart supposed to do in 3 weeks again in Japan?
          It never ceases to amaze me how some people like yourself have such short attention spans and little industry understanding.

          Over it…

          • jjbredesen

          • harkeness

            It never ceases to amaze me how some people think that 30k consoles over three weeks is much of an improvement.

          • Rinslowe

            It’s a 30k improvement…

          • harkeness

            DURRRRR

          • Rinslowe

            Now there’s a pretty picture…
            Smile!

          • harkeness

            You are a giant troll.

          • Rinslowe

            That doesn’t imply much. Coming from a guy who spends most of his time, actually trolling…
            :)

          • harkeness

            Not trolling. I don’t fail to understand basic concepts on a regular basis just to try to get a rise out of someone.

          • Rinslowe

            Sounds like you really have some personal issues and general anger management problems to deal with. Hurting over a discussion from the other day? Again you’ve lost any shred of credibility on this site likely for good. Why should I waste my time with the invisible man?

          • 504HotBoy

            Don’t waist your time talking to that clown. I guarantee that he’s a regular on here that we always see, finding a way to bash and discredit Nintendo. But he’s just started using this harkness alias recently, because people was giving him the blues about being a hater. I have my ideas who it is. He may use a different name, but the things he say and his wording seems similar to this other loser on here.

          • harkeness

            Lol such a juvenile way of thinking. I’m not here to “bash” Nintendo per se. Unless telling the truth is “bashing”.

          • Rinslowe

            He never learns does he…
            I think we both know who it is we’re talking about. lol.

        • WiiUisgaming

          Mario Kart is doing that

        • Roadkill409

          I’m not sure if your predictions will be accurate. It seems Nintendo is doing just fine to me. What is really funny, is that Sony and the other one, need 3rd party’s to survive. Nintendo has proven year after year that 3rd party’s are only optional. Maybe nice sometimes, but only optional.

      • http://facebook.com/validgraphics val berger

        which is like 8 months after mk8. seriously?

    • CEObrainz

      Hyrule Warriors should provide a nice boost for the Wii U, not Mario Kart 8 numbers but still something helpful…

      • Rinslowe

        They’re pretty hyped about Hyrule Warriors in Japan. Will be interesting to see how it goes there.

      • jjbredesen

        Yeah, should keep them up over 10 000 ish.

      • harkeness

        Hyrule Warriors….will…provide…a nice…boost…??? I feel like I’m taking crazy pills!!

        • Rinslowe

          Obviously you’re taking something. In Japan it likely will. You may need to pay attention to the Japanese market more…

          • harkeness

            The Japanese market for consoles is pretty small these days, not a major factor. If you think 10k consoles is a “boost” then yea sure I guess.

          • Rinslowe

            It’s all relative really. A snapshot of a moment doesn’t really tell a story either…

          • harkeness

            It is relative, but in absolute numbers, 10k isn’t much when we’re talking about numbers in the tens of millions.

          • Rinslowe

            Is it state the obvious day today? Did you really just make a comparison of thousands to millions? Lol…
            Carry on.

          • harkeness

            Yes I did. In the grand scheme of things, i.e. the big picture etc. etc. 10k a week isn’t all that much. Relatively, yes, it’s pretty good for Japan, but Japan isn’t all that great to begin with so it’s not saying much at all.

          • Rinslowe

            “In the grand scheme of things”
            Like Hawkins “Beginning of Time”?

            “but Japan isn’t all that great to begin with”
            Purely subjective

          • harkeness

            In terms of sales it’s not. Man you are just an insane fanboy aren’t you?

          • Rinslowe

            I’m a Japan fanboy?
            Lol

            I just find it impossible to take you seriously any more. “Please Understand”.
            Some of your general views are pretty f’d up really. Upset and insulting over opinions…
            Boring.

          • harkeness

            No you’re a wii u fanboy. See you can’t even figure out what the hell I’m talking about because you’re so stupid.

          • Rinslowe

            I’m a Wii U fanboy? Haha… Hard to argue with that logic. Can I ask you; Is everybody an idiot, stupid, and retarded that doesn’t see your point of view? Because I’m starting to see a pattern here.
            And your continued insults and misplaced logic just amuses me, really. I don’t take you seriously at all on account of that behaviour.
            “Please Understand”.

            Anger management is a viable option here…
            Just sayin.

          • harkeness

            Actually yes, since on the average people are stupid. So in all probability you are as stupid as the rest.

          • Rinslowe

            Yes I see….
            Well, good luck.

          • harkeness

            I’m glad, at least you understand what “average” means. You get a gold star.

          • Officer Raichu

            May you please stop calling peoplr stupid?

          • Shaun Moore

            40k a month. Yearly sales for wii u at this arithmetic progression will
            reach 480k in Japan alone. And to follow that logic further, I think you are a leper to go to a site called “WiiUDaily”
            and call people wii u fanboys when the conversation is about japan
            sales… of fucking wii u’s.

            It’s like the old bait and switch where the bait is discussion of
            the merits of a geographic market of wii u console sales and the switch
            is that we shouldn’t even have the conversation because you think
            people are stupid in general.

            Classic. Fucking classic. A fucking work of art in rhetoric to rival the masters of years past.

        • CEObrainz

          From the things I’ve read Dynasty Warriors is a popular series in Japan, it doesn’t really matter what platform it comes out on it will sell decently. Throw a Nintendo IP into the mix and you’ve potentially pleased two fan-bases at once. Nothing is set in stone and no one can 100% predict what will happen, but the game will most likely keep Wii U Sales at a good level (for the Wii U).

      • http://facebook.com/validgraphics val berger

        OK I just complained about these huge gaps between those games in another thread, I won’t go down that path again. Especially because I had to write down a list of 4 major games for all consoles being released in Fall and it seems Destiny is generally the only huge game to be expected there. But then again PS4 and XBone get many games that are at least something, like GTAV, which might not be the superhuge hit, but still something mentionable, so these holes in the releaselist aren’t gaping as much as they do on Nintendo’s list where you have to live with the fact that there isn’t anything mentionable being released for months until we finally get Hyrule Warriors (to be fair, there’s bayonetta 2 coming right afterwards, so at least after HW, there’s going something on on the WiiU’s releaselist)

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      PS4 sales in Japan will be lacking for a while. It will take time, but games such as KH3 and FFXV for example, will boost them. There’s just not many games that the Japanese find interesting on the PS4 at the moment. That will eventually change.

      • Officer Raichu

        in 2015 they havent announced anything for this holiday over there that would interest them so we will have to wait most likely next year for those big boosts

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          Well that’s why I said, “it will take time.” I don’t see those boosts coming this year either. 2015 I believe, will be the year it turns that around. First years for most consoles. don’t always pan out too well.

          • Officer Raichu

            actually wiiu is not doing better than last year in japan

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Well I was talking about PS4 there. As for the Wii U, I agree with you. Then again, consoles tend to take a backseat to handhelds there these days.

          • Officer Raichu

            true :) they are all doing a lot worse then their predecessor in japan

      • http://facebook.com/validgraphics val berger

        yeah, it surely will. at this point, there are still games being developed for PS3, so many people won’t switch to PS4 until the PS3 ain’t getting further support.

  • Justin Rowan

    Nothing seems to help this market for very long

  • gerome

    wii u’s sales are still too low. the console is not selling enough to generate significant profits for nintendo. what’s wrong?, mario kart was supposed to have saved the wii u. this is an absolute disaster. the u.s and u.k sales are significantly better, but not even the u.k and u.s sales crossed the 100,000 mark since mario kart’s release. if mario kart couldn’t help sales boost to at least half a million, nintendo must be desperately trying to find a way out of the very deep tunnel they’ve dug themselves into. at this point nothing seems to be capable of saving wii u, the games are not the problem, look at ps4. ps4 has a mostly poor lineup of games at the moment and its selling like hotcakes. the problem with wii u is that the market does not want the console. wii u feels and looks too outdated for a generation that wants sleek and advanced technologies.

    • John Andalora

      I stopped at “PS4 has a mostly poor lineup of games” and thought about the games released over the past month alone:

      Watch Dogs ( I know this is coming out for Wii U, but it isn’t out yet)
      Wolfenstein: New Order
      Transistor
      War Thunder
      Valiant Hearts
      Blue Estate

      And then I thought about my previous purchases:

      Knack
      Killzone: Shadowfall
      Child of Light
      Rayman Origins
      Stick It To The Man!
      SportsFriends
      OctoDad
      inFamous: Second Son
      Metal Gear Solid V
      Outlast
      Don’t Starve
      Trine 2
      Sound Shapes
      Flower
      DC Universe
      WarFrame
      Madden 25
      Need For Speed

      And thought to myself “Gosh, I didn’t realize these made up a poor lineup”

      I understand difference in opinion, but I do think it’s a fairly good game list that I had a lot of fun with.

      • MerryBlind .

        Mehh… almost all the good games on your list are multiplatform…..

        • John Andalora

          What’s wrong with that?
          I was discussing “poor lineup” not “exclusive lineup.”

          • Rinslowe

            That’s probably a fair point for what it is…

          • John Andalora

            I do agree that there’s a point to be made in how many multiplat games there are for PS4. There’s a lot you can play on other consoles, and few exclusives for it.
            I suppose I don’t really understand what the concern is about being multiplatform, though. Yeah, you can play the game on other consoles, but I’ve enjoyed them alongside the exclusives and had quite a great deal of entertainment value out of them all.

          • Rinslowe

            I don’t see any issue in your point given the context.
            A game is still a game.And good games are not necessarily synonymous with exclusivity so…

          • John Andalora

            Thank you.
            I really appreciate that.
            I do understand his point though, someone with another console to play them on might not want to buy this one.

          • MerryBlind .

            What makes a console is the exclusives. Multiplatform games are easily found everywhere. Buying a PS4 over an X1 to play Call of Duty doesn’t make sense, whereas buying a PS4 over an X1 because you prefer inFamous over Killer Instinct is perfectly legit.

            Stating multiplatform games as reasons why a console is good is not a good reason.

            The PS4 has a poor line-up of exclusive games. Same for X1, and it was the same for Wii U a year ago.

          • John Andalora

            I agree and disagree.

            I went with PS4 for more than just exclusives.

            I mean, yeah, I wanted inFamous, Killzone, Knack, and future exclusives, but one of the reasons I bought a PS4 was for multiplat. I wanted to have a wide choice of games, and the Wii U wasn’t personally giving me that choice (It probably is exactly what a lot of people were looking for, but it just didn’t work for me).

            I chose PS4 over XBO because of PS Plus, Cross-buy with Vita, free online games, and more of my friends have a PSN account. I chose it over PC because of portability (I got a GAEMS G-155 Vanguard that a PS4 can fit in, but not a PC), less maintenance on my part, and Multiplats tend to go on console before PC (things like GTAV and MGSV are important to me, and made an impact last generation carrying over to this one).

            I understand exclusives being an important part of choosing a console, but there’s more to a console than that. And now with the Wii U we’re seeing how a console with more exclusives doesn’t necessarily win.

            I think a good console needs a variety of games for a wide demographic, and PS4 fills that for me.

          • MerryBlind .

            Sure there’s more to it than just games, but games is the most important aspect. Personally I have a gaming PC, so I don’t care for either the PS4 nor the X1 because I get all the multiplats on PC, and no exclusives interest me on the two consoles (though that Halo Collection looks amazing).

            I bought a Wii U because it was the most ‘console’ of consoles, a.k.a simple and gaming-oriented instead of social/entertainement, and because it has amazing exclusives that you can’t get anywhere else.

            You made good points btw, but game consoles should be about games, and exclusives are mainly (but not exclusively (see what I did here ;P)) what differentiate a console from another.

          • John Andalora

            I can understand that when you got a gaming PC, neither of those consoles are really going to grab ones attention.

            (Dat Halo collection, though. If I had gotten XBO…)

            but anyways,

            I see and agree with what you’re saying, and you made good points on the Wii U. Games do matter.

          • MerryBlind .

            Cheers mate!

          • bistricky

            Good points you made today … if a console offers the type of games which a specific gamer likes its the right choice for that gamer. I own a Wii U but my son is big on Xbox1 and saved up to buy it …. and because both consoles offer different games, I find myself playing with him on his new Xbox1 and he plays with me on the Wii U. It is the best of both worlds. Thank you for your insight ….

          • John Andalora

            Thank you for the kind words.
            Glad to hear you two are having a lot of fun with your consoles!

          • bistricky

            Yeah …. thats when gaming is best … when it is fun. I think gaming would be lousy if there was lets say only one console and games to choose from. I like my Wii U but I would never say no when my friend calls up and he invites me over to play the newest game on his PS4. Cheers :D

          • Rinslowe

            “(though that Halo Collection looks amazing)”
            Riight?!!! It’s my poison, have to say…
            Day one.

          • MerryBlind .

            I wasn’t interested in the X1 at all… until they announced this…… now I REALLY want an X1….

      • Ducked

        All of those games you mentioned have no appeal to the Japanese market.

        • John Andalora

          Gerome never specified Japanese market. He just said sales were low and PS4 has poor lineup.

      • harkeness

        Honestly, there are only like 2 or 3 legitimately good games there.

        • John Andalora

          Opinion.

          • harkeness

            As is the opinion that they are good so fuck off.

          • Guest

            How charming.

          • harkeness

            Says the guy with horrible taste.

          • John Andalora

            How many of those games on that list have you actually played?

          • harkeness

            Every single one.

          • John Andalora

            Can you prove it?
            If you played every single one, you must have a PSN, and that means one could check your trophy list and see that you’ve played them.
            What’s your PSN username?

          • Rinslowe

            Wouldn’t that imply you have the same taste??

          • Rinslowe

          • Guest

            Woah!
            Look out guys!

      • CaptRodgers

        I wouldn’t say it’s a bad lineup because it’s multiplatform, I’d say it’s a bad lineup because it’s cross generation. I don’t see the point in buying a console for slightly better versions of games you can already get. Then if you have to sell your console to get a new one you have to buy them again due to lack of backwards compatibility. That’s why I’m not getting a PS4 until next year. Out of all the games I’ve seen on PS4, most are on my ps3, either at a lower price or will be sooner, or is on Xbox One. There’s nothing wrong getting those games on aPS4 or Xbox one, especially if you already own it, but I personally don’t find it to be a reason to buy a console when I can already play those games on the console I own now.

        • John Andalora

          I can understand that.
          I didn’t really have a PS3 so an upgrade was necessary to play some of these games.
          But what you’re saying makes sense and I don’t have anything to add or change.

          • CaptRodgers

            That is completely understandable. That’s what made getting a Wii U an even better purchase for me since I sold my Wii before the hood games came out, so I got all the Wii U games and Wii games I hadn’t played. That’s also why I plan on getting an Xbox one before PS4 so I can play Halo and any other rereleases they plan on. So I can understand that. Word of advice, get the Last of Us remaster, I’m playing it now and it’s great

      • Rich Garriques

        out of all those games only 4 of them are worth playing , which is sad and thats killzone , rayman , child of light and infamous the rest of em are garbage. trine 2 is passable by the way tho. and no you dont have metal gear solid v that is a 2 hour game prologue don’t boost.

    • Nintendoro

      Sales are poor since the advertising is missing. Ever since game launched I’ve not seen a single commercial of neither Mario Kart 8 nor Wii U system. Most of UK supermarkets have no Wii U or it’s games for sale anymore even with a fine library available on the system. I have to admit Nintendo is putting very poor effort into marketing their products. Only stores that still sell the system and it’s games are GAME, ARGOS, TOYSRUS.

      • Chase U

        I’ve seen SO many Mario Kart 8 commercials. They are all over Hulu, Netflix and kiddie TV stations.

      • Rich Garriques

        i live in canada and there are lots of commercials with mk8 so that is a lie.

        • Nintendoro

          Canada is not EU. I was on about UK. I have not seen a single tv add yet related to mk8 or wii u in the last many months

    • Rich Garriques

      oh SHUT UP MAN , im sick of hearing this line , “wii u’s sales are still too low. the console is not selling enough to
      generate significant profits for nintendo. what’s wrong?, mario kart was
      supposed to have saved the wii u. this is an absolute disaster.”

          With 544 comments thats not really that bad.

          About 4 upvotes per comment on average, i have 15000 upvotes, but way more comments so your doing fine :P

    • jjbredesen

      Well as always the favorite Xbox 360 has had a nice growth in sales due to the release of COD Warfare 9873

      • Kwondhe

        That was actually a drop.

        • jjbredesen

          How dare you use common sense on the internet!

      • Rinslowe

        For just as many years…
        Wait that doesn’t make any sensible.

        I for do there not what trot bot.
        Yeah…. Um.

      • Dark Link

        HAHAH This made me laugh

        • jjbredesen

          Yay!

    • Marioman21

      Right in the eye.

  • sq

    who the hell buys such a piece of crap like Vita?

    • Zanzama

      It’s a popular paperweight. You can’t judge other people for their taste in interior design.

    • 00EpicGamer00

      Maybe because those people don’t see the Vita as a “piece of crap” like you. Just because you don’t like a particular gaming device, doesn’t mean someone else has to as well.

  • Rinslowe

    Wii U is performing consistently I think. All tings considered. PS4 as well, all things considered….

    And I swear to God almighty, that 360 is in the game to win. Don’t be fooled by those no’s people. It’s like an object in space. lt could just keep on going forever until it hits something…

  • ENDOT123

    Who’s buying Vitas? And why?

    • Ducked

      Because Vita has some solid software if you’re a JRPG fan

    • C4

      Because games.

  • harkeness

    Mario Kart is really pushing those wii u sales, i mean WOW!

    • Rinslowe

      Corridor viewpoint. Not so wow…

      • harkeness

        Yea I know the game sucks.

        • http://ejercitogeek.net/ Mercurio2054

          ah ok!

        • Rinslowe

          Your opinion is noted.
          :)

          • harkeness

            Your opinion is retarded. :)

          • Rinslowe

            Such a well adjusted boy aren’t you…
            :)

          • harkeness

            Such a condescending twat aren’t you :)

          • Rinslowe

            When the shoe fits. Give it to Cinderella?

          • harkeness

            You are the biggest idiot I have ever had the displeasure of coming across on the internet. That’s saying a lot since there are a lot of idiots on the internet.

          • jjbredesen

            Eh, don’t be rude dude, its ok that you disagree, but you need to learn to respect others opinions ;) etc.

          • harkeness

            So does this asshole. “your opinion is noted” What a condescending cunt.

          • jjbredesen

            Perhaps it comes across as a bit rude, but its all in good humor :P On this site nothing is ever very serious unless we are talking about how bad/good Nintendo is doing etc. would not take everything so serious.

          • Rinslowe

            You don’t play well with others do you my friend. “Your opinion is noted” was given on account of your reply “the game sucks”. I was simply stating that I have no personal feeling towards that comment. And that neither did I agree with it. Personally I like the game. But does either of those points make me a “condescending C#$T” or a “fanboy”??
            Lol.

            You really need to learn how to handle other people having opinions…

          • harkeness

            Eh you need to learn english.

          • Rinslowe

            Riight….

          • harkeness

            RIIIGHHTTT RIGHHHTTT RIIIGGHGHHGHTTT.

          • Officer Raichu

            dude you almost have a average of 60 comments per DAY just stop ok!

          • matthew garcia

            Sounds like u need to get laid

          • Rinslowe

            That I have to say, is sound advice for all of us here tonight!
            Bravo.

          • Officer Raichu

            agree hes really angry over pieces of plastic and how well they do :P

          • matthew garcia

            Lol

          • harkeness

            Lol the retarded fanboys are going to lecture me about feelings towards pieces of plastic?

          • Officer Raichu

            how am i a fanboy when i loved playing wii and xbox 360 last gen and have a wii u but want ps4 and xbox one games(saving for a ps4)

          • harkeness

            Denial of basic facts, delusions of grandeur, blind loyalty=fanboy

          • Officer Raichu

            *facepalm*
            you know whats as worse as a fanboy a hater and your one of them

          • harkeness

          • Officer Raichu

            *facepalm*
            you need to grow up im sorry but your never gonna get a girl if you care too much about plastic toys

          • harkeness

            Haha I’m married you twit.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            you wife bought the game and now doesnt let you return it? maybe its the best. violent games are probably nothing for you my friend. you are too angry.

          • Rinslowe

            It’s a pity you’ve never been very good at taking your own advice.
            20 or so foul and vulgar comments later. And you post this reply to someone who has provided you none of that?
            All class…

          • Magnus Eriksson

            let me guess. you wanted another game but got mario kart? a violent game instead maybe?

          • Magnus Eriksson

            you are very angry on that piece of plastic. i can see that. i feel sorry for you….

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            If you feel a person is being condescending or stupid, then pay them no mind. You do make a good point with some here, but there’s better ways to express it. Using vulgar language isn’t a smart move.

          • Officer Raichu

            so your supporting a person whos being disrespectful?

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            There is truth in what he says about some on the website, but there is better ways to express it, as I stated. However, no, I don’t support his vulgar or disrespectful nature. I only gave my opinion and advice. Other than that, he’s free to act on his own free will and it’s up to the admins to take care of him.

          • Officer Raichu

            ok that makes sense thx for clearing up

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Anytime.

          • Rinslowe

            It speaks volumes that you would even support a guy that runs around hating on basically everybody he encounters with such vulgarity.

            You’re exposed Daniel/ Harkeness. You have a talent for that I’ve been told.

          • Zanzama

            Harkeness has the right to express his point of view just like everyone else even if it may not be what most would like to hear. However his calm argumentative demeanor has quickly escalated into vulgar, infantile and irrational behaviour as of lately. Whether it’s trolling or very little self-control, it is not acceptable. It is simply unprofessional to lose control that quickly over such trivial matters. I don’t think that Daniel defends Harkeness’ actions per se but merely disagrees with his rather pejorative attitude.

          • Rinslowe

            I totally agree. Everyone has a right to express their point of view. The problem here though is not in myself or others taking issue to that. It was absolutely, the other way round. And then of course the aggression and vulgar expression following from that…
            Where most people can accept certain levels of opposition in debate towards differing opinions, including mild forms of sarcasm and/ or humour. It is obvious that @harkeness struggled with that. And the reason is not my concern. I’m not here to emphasise with people who cannot respect anothers opinions or show at least a modicum of civility towards others in the general sense. So at this stage, I really do not care to know the “why” he chose to turn towards acts of vulgarity in his commenting.
            Regarding Daniel. I’m not going to go into too much detail. But the guy is certainly defending this situation under pretense to get a point across. He’s well know here for instigating anti social and argumentative conflicts between posters. And causing the derailment of topics. And I am more than comfortable in being blunt about saying as much. After more than six months of commenting here, I’m confident about that opinion.
            I get it if you don’t agree with that last part. It wasn’t mean’t to dissuade you from keeping your own opinion….

          • Zanzama

            He has never struck me as that kind of person before… Either that or he just seems normal in comparison to the extreme case that is Harkeness. But I nonetheless appreciate that you took the time to explain your point in more detail. It looks like Harkeness has been taken care of though. I certainly won’t miss him…

          • Rinslowe

            I respect your opinion….

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            There’s two sides to every story as I always say. I won’t even explain myself. I’ll let my actions speak for me. Harkenes was just a special kind of crazy. Neither will I miss him. It’s a shame he went off the deep end considering he was quite calm before hand.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I’m sorry Rinslowe,but putting my name out there, not to mention putting false accusations that I was harkeness as you did last night, was quite the instigation and example of conflict. You’re more than welcomed to have your opinion of me however you see fit. That certainly isn’t any skin off my back. However, I’d say you made quite a fool of yourself after all that. Perhaps maybe you’ll learn something from this. I in no shape or form, support harkeness’ actions towards you. If anything, it was overboard. However, I do agree with some of his points about you. I’ve been here for more than six months. I’ve gathered enough info on people and made up my minds as I see them. From my perspective, I think you have quite the ego and are too high on yourself. Not to mention being quite the serial commenter.

            I have nothing personal against you, but I do have to wonder if you do. Considering your actions yesterday, and continuing to make people to be the problem. Ever thought that maybe that you and a few people on here, are part of the problem too? I truly don’t think you do that often. There’s a reason I choose to ignore your comments these days. I know your story, and expect you to act out as you do. So really, I see no point in discussing things with anyone who keeps pointing the finger that often. Like it or not, there’s plenty truth to be had here, and opinions alone. Other than that, I have nothing else say to you about this.

            There’s my two cents, and I’m done with this discussion. I think there’s been enough craziness for one week.

          • Rinslowe

            You can have whatever opinion you need Daniel.

            I remember a couple of guys on here not so long ago were saying the same thing about you, in regards to your accusation of being a – how did you put it – “Serial Commenter” haha. Oh the hypocrisy.
            o_O

            I guess that’s one of the reasons for your shying away a bit, only to return with righteousness in hand, lol. Really that accusation is a little cray cray coming from you. But your opinion is noted. Either way, I hardly think you’re one to talk…
            Also noted your opinion of my perceived ego. Ah well, not much I really need to say about that. You have your insecurities, so that’s understandable.

            I’d say your opinion of anyone on this site, least of all me having made a fool of oneself, is not something most people would take seriously. My honest observation there. But once again you opinion was noted.

            Thank you, for your honesty. It’s a rare thing. And carry on.
            I’m sure you’ll have plenty of opportunities to reply to my many “serial comments” as you put it…
            :)

          • jjbredesen

            Ah the drama! This is better than the house wives reality shows xD

          • Rinslowe

            Never a dull moment….

          • jjbredesen

            Yeah i tend to try not to get in to any arguments haha, only when there are trolls or people are actually getting harassed etc.

            But reading comments never gets old because people always find something to argue about, and everyone takes it serious etc.

            I respect both of you, and i don’t think i need to say more than that xD

            Can’t judge people from how they are on the internet as they can be really different in real life, and there is always thing you don’t know about them.

          • Rinslowe

            I’ve heard that Daniel has a habit of creating accounts and playing this sort of disruption. My guess is that he’s one and the same.
            I would urge Ashley to confirm it through the comments IP. I know that discuss includes that in each comment together with the email address. Although I suspect that he’s at least smart enough to know that one…
            Still it’s worth a try. As harassing posters and the general community only to return after and play Devils Advocate is insidious. Not to mention troubling.

          • bistricky

            I am sure many today have flagged and even contacted admin. Chill a little ….. and let it all play out. Trust …. don’t jump.

          • Rinslowe

            Good advice.

          • Rinslowe

            So let me get this straight your supporting yourself? I guess it makes sense….

          • Magnus Eriksson

            wow, it must be a really bad game. i can read it from your frustration…

          • Gameonfool

            I come across these people all the time saying things like this when they are problem.

          • Rinslowe

            Your opinion is noted….
            lol

            What a winner.

          • harkeness

            Go fuck yourself you retarded monkey bitch.

          • Gameonfool

            Bet you know all fucking yourself, your dick smells of shit just like your comments.

          • Rinslowe

            Nice. And I need to improve my English? haha.
            Oh man. You have taken a turn tonight…
            o_O

          • harkeness

            Nothing wrong with creative vulgarity, although if you understood English you would know that.

          • Rinslowe

            “Nothing wrong with creative vulgarity,”
            Hahaha….
            Seriously you have me in stitches!

          • harkeness

            That’s good. At least you can laugh at yourself.

          • Rinslowe

            If I corrected you and said that in fact. I’m actually laughing at “you” not with “you”. Would you be really upset and fly off the proverbial handle? I want to know, because I may need to position myself closer to the bathroom…

          • harkeness

            What are you going to do, shit yourself? I guess that wouldn’t be different than most days though.

          • Rinslowe

            No need to be upset and vulgar. Why so serious son?

          • harkeness

            I’m not upset. I just think you shouldn’t shit yourself. Personal hygiene is important.

          • Rinslowe

            Obviously with all of your hatery and malcontent in this thread. Clearly you’re really upset…
            :(
            Is it because people aren’t agreeing with your viewpoints or? I’m just trying to understand why someone would put themselves out there like that. Getting angry and bitter over opinions…
            Cursing and insulting people. Is it really that upsetting for you here? Sharing a place with varying viewpoints? Do you feel your views are being unfairly challenged? What is the problem?

          • harkeness

            I’m not angry, I just think that you’re a retarded monkey bitch. For me it’s a fact of life. I don’t need to be angry about that, but it needs to be said.

          • clownshoes1982

            Dude, are you 12? You’re not a good troll.

          • harkeness

            Dude, bro, dude, totally, dude, man,

          • Rinslowe

            Well if getting it off your chest helps you feel better then, fine by me.
            Just know that I’ll not likely ever respect you from here on out. Hope that doesn’t cause you further anguish. And I apologise for my sarcastic attitude towards you tonight. But that was on account of your swearing, cursing and generally hateful commenting in my direction.
            All the best. I’m going to leave you to your devices. And try not to let things get to you so much. We all just like to have fun in our own competitive ways around these parts…

            Peace.

          • harkeness

            You had a sarcastic attitude from the get go, like every other time I’ve talked to you. It’s not like tonight was any different.

          • Rinslowe

            Is that an excuse for your behavior? Because it would be weak at best.
            Sounds like you have some baggage to get rid of. Like I mentioned. I see no reason to take you seriously from this point forward. Good luck with everything else.

            Cheers.

          • harkeness

            I don’t need an excuse. You’re an asshat and deserve any treatment you get. I don’t see how anyone with half a brain cell can take you seriously, but I guess this is a nintendo focused board so you’re all either 8 years old or mentally handicapped.

          • Rinslowe

            I hope you use a VPN or proxy when signing in with this account. Otherwise I dare say. A matching IP would be most embarrassing no?

          • Nothing5555

            Do they band based just on IP addresses?

          • bistricky

            “I guess this is a Nintendo focused board so you’re ALL either 8 years old or mentally handicapped”.

            Manic troll.

          • Rinslowe

            Your hatery and generally anti social viewpoints towards a company and it’s perceived fanbase continues to be noted.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            are you a real psychopath? like in the movies?

          • Magnus Eriksson

            you should wash your mouth with soap and give mario kart another try, it might be good for you :)

          • bistricky

            I knew it from the very first post he did a week ago …. I knew who it was ….. just not why …. Ashley should correct this.
            Cheers :D

          • Rinslowe

            Agree 110%. I’ve drawn my line in the sand on account of all this disruption, cursing, swearing and hating. It really does speak of a troubled mind at work. And I’ll be trying to get this looked into as well.

            BTW, would you care to say who you believe it is?
            This sort of thing shouldn’t be allowed to take place on a site where people come to discuss their interests etc…

          • Officer Raichu

            sorry but thats the last straw im reporting you dont tell people that

          • harkeness

            Oh no don’t report me, please

          • Magnus Eriksson

            so angry… i think mario kart will be good for you eventually :)

          • Magnus Eriksson

            why are you so angry? was the game that bad?

        • Magnus Eriksson

          why?

    Remember everyone give harkeness attention he needs it

    • harkeness

      Remember everyone theanimal fleming has nothing interesting to say.

  • Capt. Smoker

    I can see those ps4 numbers picking up when the ps4 brings out some traditional Japanese games, nice to see Wii U, 3DS and Vita on top, both systems cater to what Japan wants.

    • ben

      The PS4 is not in a good place in Japan.

      • Capt. Smoker

        It’s not surprising, they only really have Western games on the system, I still see no reason to buy a ps4, I can understand Japanese people wanting a Vita as it’s chalk full of Japanese games, but ps4 as it stands, not much to offer.

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          A bad move on their part for not having at least a few games that appeal to the Japanese. It’s nothing to over worry about. The games will come. Vita makes up what PS4 doesn’t have at the moment.

          • ben

            If Sony are not careful they will miss the boat. The Xbox 1 is actually getting a lot of pre-orders and MS has signed a lot of Japanese Devs to make exclusive games and manga for the Xbox 1. Many people will say that Japanese people would rather support a Japanese company, however, Sony really lost a lot of good will with the PS4 releasing 4 months late in Japan. Xbox 1 games are also retailing at 20 dollars cheaper than ps4 games in Japan.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            With how bad the Xbox 360 did in Japan, I don’t think Sony has to worry about them. Only rivals they have in Japan, are Nintendo.

          • ben

            The bottom line is Japanese consumers are not as Japanese Product loyal as they once were. It certainly will be interesting to see how the Xbox 1 launch goes.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Actually, they still are. Lol. If they weren’t, the 360 would be doing better than it is now.

          • ben

            … THe 360 was almost 10 years ago. And it did sell reasonably well, considering the ps2 fan base that existed in Japan 8 years ago. The PS fanbase is shrinking, which is why the ps4 is yet to sell over 500 000 units in Japan.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            It’s hard to have any sales when the games aren’t there. Shrinking is your opinion. You’re certainly entitled to that. However, 10 years ago or not, Xbox One’s chances of making it big in Japan, are slim. I could be wrong, but history at this point, is on my side. When the games for PS4 come and they will, expect boosts that not even Xbox One will be able to keep up with. This isn’t a fanboy perspective, this is what just about anyone who has watched the industry for years thinks.

            All that aside, Ben, I can’t say that all for certain keep in mind, but the odds aren’t against Microsoft.

          • ben

            I agree. The odds are against them being a success in Japan.
            I do feel they are in a much stronger position this time around.

          • Rinslowe

            That’s interesting. I guess it would be too early to say if the Xbox 1 follows the same path than the 360. The market has changed quite a bit. Although the evidence may not support the likelihood of a MS comeback. I guess anything is possible.
            Despite their initiatives towards games development meeting Japanese tastes I wonder how effective in practice that would be?
            Although, not having to invest in the Kinect together with cheaper games may speak to the Japanese economic situation better than PS4 currently. And doubly so if titles the Japanese gamer’s are wanting to play are available within the lauch window.
            Just my 2 cents.
            :)

          • Rich Garriques

            really? , never knew this at all , either way once ps4 picks up you will see great sales. and they wont hold a candle to wii u or 3ds anyway.

          • thedeciderU

            thinking about getting a ps4 – i believe i remember seeing you had one. any favorite games as of now? i know a bunch launch in october.

      • Rich Garriques

        that’s what happens when you cater to mostly a western gamers.

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    Decent sales this week. I was thinking Wii U would have more, but guess not. 3DS is certainly at it again. Besides 3DS, Vita at least found it’s footing at least in one region.

  • ben

    Different news, but, Super smash for 3ds is now sold out as a preorder in Japan.

    • thedeciderU

      let’s just hope it carries over to wii u this fall/holiday/whenever they actually release it.

  • Cristina Dracco

    Wii U!!! o/ (O|/O) bee bee!!!! #MK8

  • HydePark1980

    PS4 is not going to see any significant action in terms of sales for one simply reason. It’s a western developed systm aimed to cater to western gamers. Sony hasn’t seen a balanced(eastern & western games) library of titles since the PS2 era.

    • oontz

      If the Japanese games are there, the Japanese gamers will buy it.

  • FutureFox

    Is it that much easier to get WiiU/3DS sales data in Japan or something? I almost never see clear sales reports in U.S or Europe regarding these hardware. The only time there’s any financial news its the form of b*llsh!t percentages. “666%….,” of what? A hundred? A thousand? Who knows. Damn news site would rather leave the reader to do the ground work than to even offer a decent ball park figure. Tsk, tsk.

    • bistricky

      Agreed. For example, GFK Chart-Track gathers data in software and hardware sales in the U.K. and here is the latest top 40 in software …

      http://www.chart-track.co.uk/index.jsp?c=p/software/uk/latest/index_test.jsp&ct=110032

      …. but for hardware and some sort of solid numbers you need to subscribe???

      That is why, at the present time, I still will use Vgchartz …. I know many don’t trust their numbers but at least it is something and likely shows trends in the gaming market …… their latest #’s show Mario Kart 8 in #1 globally etc and the Wii U in the mix for 8th generation consoles.

      http://www.vgchartz.com/

      • FutureFox

        I use vgchartz as well for exactly that reason (going there momentarily). I’m not sure how the idea of it not being the best got perpetuated but I’d rather cite something that at least shows a trend than nothing at all. You’re right about some getting on them by being a few tenths off but that kind of scrutiny overlooks the basic idea regarding sales trend and more importantly adoption.

  • Josie the Sketcher

    I think Mario Kart 8 would have had bigger sale numbers if they…
    1. Didn’t ruin the battle mode (most complaints)
    2. Had a better roster
    3. More new tracks

    Anything else??

    • harkeness

      I don’t know what else they can do with Mario Kart. It’s so limited.

    • FutureFox

      Would be cool if they added Wart from what is known as Super Mario Bros. 2 on NES in North America. Actually add:

      Wart
      Mouser
      Flurry (they already have shyguy)
      Snifit
      and FryGuy

      I always thought Mouser was pretty cool.

      • hahahero

        I never thought of Wart or Mouser. I think they’d make for interesting characters.

  • Nookling

    Props to the troll below, he has gotten a lot of attention! I’m suprised so many people have been responding to him. Good trolling I suppose

    • harkeness
      • GermGerm

        He didn’t even have to call you by name, you just knew it was you! :)

        • harkeness

          Haha that’s because I understand retarded cunts.

          • Rinslowe

            Seems like you care about those no’s a lot…

            o_O

          • harkeness

            Not anymore than you guys do. That’s kind of the topic of the article dumbass. Lol did you go to school to be this stupid or were you just born this way?

          • Rinslowe

            Obviously a lot more… Than everyone…

          • harkeness

            Again why must I explain basic concepts to you and you will never understand them? I mean it all started with me saying 10k wasn’t all that much then you had to contort yourself every which way in trying to defend these numbers as some huge news. I was just responding to you mostly.

          • Rinslowe

            Lol. So misguided…
            I feel sorry for you honestly. But no more entertaining your trolling behaviour. I doubt any one else will be interested in playing with you now either…
            :(

        • Rinslowe

          :) Loool….

          There’s someone else who frequents here, that has that talent, now that you mention it.

          • bistricky

            in other news, the troll is dead. ’nuff said..

  • Shootdatrupee!…

    Eh it’s still in front of PS4

    • Allvalve

      Indeed, I believe that’s five weeks on the bounce. It’s a shame that isn’t happening globally.
      The downward trend is a bit worrying so soon after MK8 though, Nintendo really need to get Smash Brothers released and/or a price cut pretty soon.
      I’m looking forward to revised life to date sales, as everyone is still using the figures from the end of march. They must be pretty close to 7 million by now.

  • InterTreble

    In Japan, only Nintendo exists. PS4 under Wii U is the answer to the offenses of trolls and haters, i.e. the only ones here who have never fun.

    • oontz

      Sony actually has 5 product lines selling in Japan. The only one trolling right now is you. Also when are we going to play mariokart? Keep waiting to have a match with you… You do own it right?

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        Maybe he doesn’t actually have it?

        • Rinslowe

          Intreble is a pretty militant looking ah “fan” I’ll call it, lol. Maybe he just doesn’t want to add Oontz on account of their polarising viewpoints. Just a guess…

          Despite our differences, if you owned a Wii U and Mario Kart. I’d still add you…

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Well, if that’s the case, then that’s a pity. I can’t say oontz doesn’t try to be nice.

            “Despite “our” differences, if you owned a Wii U and Mario Kart. I’d still add you…
            True story.”

            Likewise. I can respect that.

          • Rinslowe

            Haha. I was half expecting a load of rhetoric psychobabble on how I somehow implied you were up to no good. Daniel.
            At least that was civil. I was reluctant to reply due to not knowing if this comment would fall into the “serial” category… XD haha…

            Ah, you have your moments Gonzalez…

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            “Haha. I was half expecting a load of rhetorical psychobabble on how I somehow implied you were up to no good. Daniel.
            At
            least that was civil. I was reluctant to reply due to not knowing if
            this comment would fall into the “serial” category… XD haha…”

            Yeeeeeah….I won’t even go into what’s wrong with that statement. I think this is as civil as we’ll get.

            “Ah, you have your moments Gonzalez…”

            Feeling’s mutual.

          • Rinslowe

            Why and how people lose control on the internet has always baffled me, truth be told. I can say that it is true, I respect your ability to keep reasonably calm and collected. And you’ve kept it together. Apart from a few things I heard of recently.
            But anyway. I think we both know there’s no room for true mutual respect. So lets not entertain delusional concepts.
            Two “serial commenters” then. Never a dull moment, on the Wii U Daily comment section. Lol…

        • oontz

          Maybe, only he knows the answer to that though.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            True. Either that, or just the usual stalling.

      • Rinslowe

        Speaking of playing Mario Kart did you ever get around to adding my account? Whooping your ass on Kart would be a genuine pleasure. Haha
        I have a decent amount of adds on my main account but I think I gave you the Kart one? Had a few random people from online wanting to add me so not sure who’s who.
        Anyway. If you’re still thinking about getting around to that. I know we have our ah “discussions” from time to time. But what better way to blow it off…
        By settling it on the track.
        Also please don’t share that account with any crazies. I’m allergic as you’ve probably noticed.
        Happy gaming…

        • oontz

          Ha ha I don’t think we need to “settle” anything. I thought I did add you, I will check again tonight though what was your id again? I am always up for some online gaming and due to our locations the time difference is in our favor!

          • Rinslowe

            Yeah like I said I may have added you on my main account or the Kart one recently but wouldn’t have known it…
            So we may have gone a few rounds already I wouldn’t know. mkartspecr
            What was yours?

            And absolutely we need to settle “it” on the track… haha
            :)

          • oontz

            My id is “DjSchism”
            Feel free to add me to your full account not just the racer one.
            It’s also the id I use for psn, so you can add me there as well.
            Looking forward to it!

          • Rinslowe

            I’m more open to my Nintendo accounts. When I started my PSN account way back when, I was pretty laid back in information. Seeing as though I have a certain profile, lol. Now that account and live both reflect my real day to day so… most my old school friends are there…
            Here on this site I’m Rinslowe to comment on my interest of Nintendo in general. But it’s complicated that side of things a little.
            Like Iwata always says. “Please Understand” lol…
            Sure there is plenty of opportunity to go a few rounds on this platform.

            And I’ll add you to my main console tonight no worries. Have one here in the office with me lol….

          • Rinslowe

            That would was overly convoluted lol. I compressed my thoughts.
            Basically I keep it tight on PSN. All my genuine mates are there.
            And I don’t have too many of them interested in Nintendo anymore.

            I will add DJShcism to my main account later tonight.
            But for online on Wii U really it’s just Blops 2 and Mario Kart. Everything else is on the other platforms and PC, again with my old school partners in crime…

          • oontz

            Well I play a lot of games but rarely with my old mates due to the time difference it’s hard to get online at the same time. But feel free to add me to whatever service you choose and we’ll go from there.

      • InterTreble

        I don’t want to play with an idiot who always replies offending and telling bulls*it. Nintendo outsold each one of the 5 beloved pieces of hardware you are telling about: 3DS outsold PSP and PS Vita, Wii U outsold PS4 and PS3. What an tpic fail. And what an hyprocrite…

        • oontz

          I was replying logically to your comment that in japan only Nintendo exists which is clearly not correct given the data available on this very article. Regardless of currently being outsold, sony still exists and is making money selling their products in japan.

          As for being a hypocrite I have asked you to give me some sort of proof of when I have ever acting in a hypocritical way towards you or somene else and you haven’t.

          Your condescending attitude is noted, just FYI no products are loved by me, a product serves a purpose and if it doesn’t, I don’t buy it. I also just bought a shiny new 3ds xl which I am eagerly awaiting to arrive. By supporting and enjoying games on multiple platforms I am indeed one of the ones on here having more fun.

          Still don’t see why you wouldn’t want to play some online mariokart. That’s just being childish. No need to be that way.

          • InterTreble

            You always start with words like “fanboy”, “troll”, “hypocrite”, and so on. You are not God in the Earth, man. You don’t own the Truth. Especially if you tell bulls*it. If you cannot even read the piece of news, it’s not my problem. Come back to school, learn how to behave, and then we will talk again.

          • oontz

            You are the one that said people should speak directly about what was posted and not just flame and cause member wars? Right?

          • InterTreble

            YOU started the member war. YOU. Are you ok? Why don’t they ban a troll like you? Always offenses, always insulting. What a bad way of living. What a shame…

          • oontz

            You may have me confused with someone else… I never started a member war with you. I always ask you valid questions. If you consider that member war then so be it. Looking through our comment history it seems you are the one always insulting me… calling me an idiot, a hypocrite, a troll, etc. No need to be so rude towards other board members. On top of that a troll is someone who has no interest in something and the “trolls” the site trying to get people to respond. I own nintendo products and have supported them since the NES. I am interested in them as a company and their products. I am not trolling anyone on this site, so please stop insulting me by calling me names.

          • InterTreble

            “The only one trolling right now is you.”

            This is what YOU wrote. This is member war. If you can’t understand you are wrong, I simply suggest you to quit it now: you are making a very poor showing.

          • oontz

            I never called you a troll, just pointing out that you are the one actually “trolling” by making that post.

          • InterTreble

            Just to know, which part of my post is “trolling”? I’m not mothertongue, but sometimes it looks like you and your friend (guess who?) are less than me! ;)

          • oontz

            “In Japan, only Nintendo exists.”

            Not only is it factless, it’s trolling.

          • InterTreble

            Have you read the article, or just my comment? Look at the numbers, remember what you and your friend told about Wii U when it was doing the same numbers of PS4, and then stop talking no sense. In Japan, only Nintendo exists (= they outsell all the competitors. As for home and handheld console market. This is a fact. If this hurts you or you can’t understand this very basic principle, it’s not my problem. I can just suggest you to read the article, you may learn something.

          • oontz

            ” In Japan, only Nintendo exists = they outsell all the competitors. As for home and handheld console market. This is a fact. And not only a fact for this week. If this hurts you because it means you are wrong, or if you can’t understand this very basic fact, sorry friend, but it’s not my problem.”

            So do you feel then that In every other region only Sony exists because they outsell all the other competitors? Or is this a double standard thing?

  • Destructonator101

    Wait, so no Xbones were sold in japan? I think somebody made a mistake… I would think that at least one Japanese kid bought one this week. And there are a lot of Americans in Japan too, and none of them bought and Xbone. What is it, don’t they sell Xboxes in Japan?
