But almost nothing from anyone has sold like the Wii. The other two current-gen consoles wouldn't be considered successful based on that. Nor any of Nintendo's old consoles

Actually the Wii U was selling about as much as the Wii in its first month, and it actually has yielded a larger profit from a lower number of sales. That fact alone for Nintendo was a plus, and while it might not be selling now, its gonna sell like hot cakes in December. 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 saved the 3DS, they're betting on the same duo to help the Wii U, and I'm expecting it to likely work a second time around.

    I should probably say that it is a bit overpriced to include a game in the packs worth buying. Just make ZombiU/Nintendo Land a digital download in their respective packages and cut away $30 from the ZombiU pack or $50 from the Deluxe set. Then, get rid of the Basic set or make it cheap because it isn't selling at all.
