PS4 AND Xbox One Outsell Wii U in Lifetime Sales!
Remember a few weeks ago when we said that the Xbox One was already about to outsell the Wii U in total sales to date in the UK?
Well unfortunately for Nintendo (and especially their UK marketing tea), it’s now confirmed that within just a few weeks of launches of the Xbox One and PS4, both systems have handily outdone the Wii U in total sales. Or in other words, they’ve each sold more systems in the last few weeks than the Wii U has in this country in about a year or do.
I’m not surprised to be honest. Nintendo seems to perenially cursed when it comes to sell absolutely anything in the UK for some reason, and with the absolutely shoddy work done over here (hint, not enough advertising and minimal support for things like the media), I predicted this type of train wreck would occur many weeks ago.
But yeah, what do you think? Are you a bit disappointed that Nintendo has failed so hard in the UK that their Wii U system has been outsold by both competitors in just a matter of days or weeks? What could they do to actually sell Wii U systems in the region?
