518 people are playing Black Ops 2 on Wii U right now

Call of Duty: Black Ops II had 800,000 Xbox 360 players online on launch day.

The Wii U version? It had 518.

Meanwhile, zombies had just 42 when Kotaku tried to play.

Now, before you declare it a failure, the circumstances are very different. For one, the Wii U just launched a matter of hours ago, and requires a 5GB patch to play online. Most people are probably content playing Mario offline for now, as downloading the patch means you can't use your console until it is finished.

It also hasn't launched in any region outside of the US, and most of the early adopters probably already have Black Ops II on another platform.

That's right also not many people would have bought black ops 2 on wiiu.. Might be craploads of peeps playing mario though
518 is more than any Wii game ever had at once.... [MOG]
Oh for Christ sake, it's a little early to judge isn't it? the console has been out what a day or two in one territory! Give it a month or two and then get back to me. Even then though you can't possibly compare to Xbox and PS3 numbers. Dumb sites looking for their headlines. -_-
most people hav'nt got the games becuase its not launched yet in some places
A 5G patch?!?! WTF!!??
I'm not saying anything...
They didn't put in the functionality for background downloading? ... oh nintendo ...

BUT TEH WII U!!! TEH WII U! [Rage]
They started making the console a while back, then made the firmware as production went by. Makes sense, don't really see what's the issue here.

I'd rather that than:
A) A delayed launch (they would have to make the firmware first, then be able to ship with it).
B) Nothing after launch (3DS, anyone?). [heartbreak]

Agreed. No issue with the 5gb patch on my end.

omg its so confusing :'@
@beta

My post above M@ndys, why is this happening?
Shouldn't this be compared to the 360s launch title, being CoD 2 ??

I mean, the Wii U is always gonna be less, but hardly anyone has a Wii U yet.
I lol'd
What Olly said. Hardly think it's a fair comparison.
Bit silly to be comparing a console that's been out for a day in one region to others that have been out universally for six years. Not newsworthy.
