According to 'research' the U will sell out faster than the Wii, but only manage to sell 70% of what the Wii did overall. The numbers seem reasonable, though I find it amusing the U hasn't launched yet... we haven't seen what Nintendo has in store yet... and some how we know total life sales of the system. I am in the wrong field, I should have gotten my degree in guessing games. Talk about a fun job. Joking aside, their projections are reasonable, though premature. I do think the U will be more successful than the GC and N64, less successful than the Wii.

Maybe you didn't see the post, but there is a new VGF rule that posting Forbes articles is now a banable offense. It was nice knowing you Keller.

The adult me in doesn't care about sales and only wants good games. The kid in me wants the U to sell more in two months than the Vita did in 12 months, just to give the SDF a hard time.

SDF response: You can't compare hand held sales/specs/features to console sales/specs/features.

VGF response: But what about when you say: "Vita has x-game chat and you don't have to spend $60 a year for it. In fact, even with x-game chat, it's still free to play online."

SDF response: *runs*

I think comparing anything to the vita reflects negatively on the vita at this point.

That would make my day if Keller got banned. He never contributes anything except Mario Galaxy 1 and 2's metacritics over and over again.

I think it is premature to *right off the Vita just yet. The best may be forthcoming, at least I hope it is... (plugging in my PSP Go)

EDIT: *write. Thanks to FoxHound

I would like to blame autocorrect, but I think it might have been user error.
