    Wow! Amazing. :D
    I took a look at the Wii U's wikipedia page, I calculated all the units shipped and it's 20 million so far from day one if I'm not mistaken lol. :P

    It is 6 million for WiiU.
    PS4 numbers are expressive, and PS4 has everything to beat PS2.

    In the past years this Forum changed from a "we love Nintendo and hate everything else" into a "Nintendo is stupid and makes only mistakes, now we love Sony" Forum ^^V
    and all the time from the beginning the hate for Microsoft hardly changed XD at least one Thing that remains the same year after year XD

    The Sony Love did start a bit recently but I don't agree that people don't love Nintendo anymore here (even though you didn't say tempers don't love nintendo anymore I'm just assuming.)
    If you don't believe me, ask the mods to put up a poll on the front page about 3 options which are the 3 companies. I'll hold any bet the winner will be ninty.

    I don't know, the Nintendo victim complex seems to be going as strong as ever.
