I never even used any receipts nor have I gone to Burger King recently, I just did the daily free code via e-mail and won on my third try.
Its been almost 3 years since any new Alice In Chains DLC. ....
edit - Double checked, and the totals are PS3 + 360 = Wii. It's well more than both individually, and roughly equal to both put together.

The problem with the WiiU is two fold. I've been a fan of many many things from comics, to video games and a **** ton of stuff in between. I'm also almost forty now so I've seen trends like what happened with the Wii happen multiple times in multiple different areas from Baseball cards, to toys, to comics, and yes Video Games.
What happens is you get what is known in the comic/baseball card/toy/etc collecting area as speculators. In the video game world these people are oddly called casuals. But the meaning is the same.
What happens is the 'general public' (IE people that are not normally considered fans of...whatever) get wind of it as the new big thing and they go crazy trying to snatch it up to be part of the fad. Yes I know comics have been around since the early 30's, video games since the late 70's etc, but it's called a fad when a ton of outside people suddenly show interest in it.
Usually every time it happens there is a massive explosion in sales and interest, and suddenly there is money flying everywhere, new companies crop up to get in on it, and the companies that are experiencing this insane amount of attention act like the good times will never end.
And they always do. Every single time, and when it does it's almost a crushing blow that decimates the entire industry. Profits fall, companies implode, and disappear forever, and the industry tries to limp back to what the numbers were like before the 'fadders' hit.
So after that long ass explanation, the Wii sold like it did because it was a fad or craze exactly like the dozens I've explained above (see also Tickle Me elmo, the comic book explosions of the early/mid 90's, baseball cards before that, the atari 2600 era of video games, and so on).
Those people have long since moved on to the next big thing...which at the moment seems to be portable/IOS games (and who knows where they'll wander to next).
So the market that Nintendo is hoping to capture again with the WiiU just doesn't exist. They've moved on. That's their first problem.
Their second problem is the name. WiiU. They named it that to tell that very same market of 'casuals' that hey look it's the next Wii. However as stated that market has moved on, and secondly keeping the Wii name has made waaaaay too many people think the WiiU is just a controller accessory for the Wii and not a console itself. I've got a nephew who is a pretty big gamer and so is his girlfriend. Just two months ago I had to explain to them that it was an entirely new console.
So when you've got gamers not understanding what your product is, you've got a pretty huge problem.
The outdated tech is really going to bite them in the ass when the next gen consoles hit in 2013/14 as well seeing as how they've already said that Unreal 4 won't run on the WiiU. So there goes all your third party ports and it's the Wii all over again.
I am a Nintendo fan from way back in the day so this isn't me wishing them ill. Quite the opposite in fact. However I think they've made some assumptions on the market that is going to bite them in the ass pretty badly on this one.

Check out the TAG website here! :
Im pretty sure the dlc will transfer and the online store will still work. The wii games will run in wii mode in the wii u, not emulated so there shouldnt be any difference.
But im not planning on moving my dlc anyway since the wii will become a dedicated rockband training machine for me until and if we dver do get a new rock band.
