THE WII HAS FAILED THIS HOLIDAY SEASON OH MY GOD!

Dear fellow writers of videogame things,

The whole "Wii has failed this year" and "Is the Wii in trouble?" stuff has to stop, because you are sounding incredibly stupid and making us all look terrible. The Wii, in case you didn't know (which is apparently likely), was released in 2006. It has since sold millions, without any hardware reiterations, to the point where pretty much everybody who wanted one already has one. 

Of course it's not going to f*cking sell as many units now, you dolts. 

Not selling as many units as you sold last year when you've already sold more than anybody else in the industry is not an alarming decline. It's called selling a lot of sh*t. Just thought I'd point it out to y'all, folks.
