The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Analyst Expects Wii U Sales To Be One Quarter Of Wii

Posted on Thursday, December 12 @ 07:54:42 PST by Alex_Osborn


Nintendo's HD console has had a rough first year, and by the looks of it, its situation likely won't improve all that dramatically in the coming years. According to DFC Intelligence, Wii U "sales [are] anticipated to be only about a quarter of the Wii."

As for why this is the case, DFC explains that the console "is expected to be mainly a system for Nintendo first-party software," resulting in a limited library, and thus, a smaller install base. Wii was an anomaly, and since the motion gimmick has lost its allure and the tablet controller isn't wowing consumers, Wii U will likely continue to sell poorly.

Of course, this doesn't necessarily mean doom and gloom for Nintendo fans, as GameCube wasn't a very successful system for the Big N either, depite being home to some of the greatest games Nintendo has ever created. Here's to hoping the same proves true with Wii U.
