I had no idea Wii U was doing that badly, it's not even close to PS3/360, what will it do when PS4/NeXbox release.

Nintendo needs some heavy hitters but even with it's big games, I feel Wii U will be more of a Gamecube than Wii in terms of sales

The casuals were unreliable and moved on to iOS/Android games. They're cheaper and often just as fun to them.

classic2002143d ago

Wiiu wont be selling a lot during a time period where you have ni no kuni. A colorful jrpg for the whole family, nintendo might pick up at the end of the year though.

TheLyonKing2142d ago

ni no kuni for the whole family, its really hard if a 3 year old can play this and get full completetion I will be impressed

Clarence2142d ago

The Wii u wont be selling until a new Zelda and Mario comes out. Ni No Kuni has nothing to do with it.

The Wii u wasn't selling before the release of Ni No Kuni.

shackdaddy2143d ago

It'll pick up. No worries :)

LOL_WUT2142d ago

Can I please borrow your crystal ball? Since you happen to know the future ;)

lilbroRx2143d ago

There were no games released in January. As has been said for two months straight, people are just waiting for games to drop, for some a price drop as well. Nothing more.

The console will spike in sales when 1 of those 2 events transpire.

live2play2142d ago (Edited 2142d ago )

so vita sells horribly compared to 3DS with its bigger library
oh umm... its because 3DS is cheaper wait till vita gets games!

wiiu cant surpass the cheaper ps360 with their bigger library of games
woa wiiu sucks its in trouble

you guys are pathetic

yea wait till the ps4 hits with its $450 price tag
that will show the wiiu!

NateCole2142d ago

mandf2143d ago

Ps3 really hitting it's stride.

Belking2143d ago

Doesn't look like Still behind xbox by almost 2 mil.

Seraphemz2142d ago

Do you know how to count?

AngelicIceDiamond2142d ago

I wouldn't even bother. Fanboys are still going by these numbers even though allot of people say its fake.

Last I checked MS has 75.9M consoles sold. All we heard from the PS3 was it shipped more units, hardly anything to go by.

I'm just sayin MS released real numbers to the public we're yet to hear from Sony.

TheLyonKing2142d ago

@AngeliclceDiamond Numbers shipped by sony are numbers sold so I think Sony are more interested in those fiqures.

Sony doesnt give their consoles to shops for free and then wait for peoploe to buy it.

WeAreLegion2142d ago

MS has 75.9 consoles SHIPPED. There is no way for MS to know how many consoles have been sold, realistically. They can only count shipped, like every other manufacturer. Shipped = sold because they SELL them to the stores.

It's not hard.

i feel a little sorry for the vita, but the ps3 is spanking the competition as usual.

juandren2143d ago

He said "the competition". I didn't know the 3DS competed with the PS3? Must have missed the memo

CaptainN2142d ago

Last I checked they all compete for your time as a gamer, regardless if its portable or home console.So yes, 3DS does compete with PS3 and every other gaming device. At the end of the day these companies want you to play games on their device.

juandren2142d ago

By that logic, they're competing for the time I go out with my friends, drive around in my car, go to work, do shopping, watch a movie. 3DS is an on the go system. PS3 is a home console. While the time allocated to either might intertwine from time to time, for the most part they are very different in terms of when they are used.

Qrphe2142d ago

iPhone is spanking then.

MasterCornholio2142d ago

Well then according to your logic smartphone games are kicking the arse out of handhelds and consoles. I guess console gaming and handheld gaming is doomed then.

CaptainN2140d ago (Edited 2140d ago )

Wow you guys all disagree but even Nintendo themselves have stated this. This is a fact, not opinion based. Nintendo has said in many interviews their products compete with all types of entertainment for your time. The more time you spend on their device the less time your spending on something else. So this would include portable or console. They want you to buy their products and to buy the software that goes with it. Being portable does not change the fact they want you to stick with them as your form of entertainment.

Please stop being dillusional people, put your pro Sony pitchforks away because this isn't about that. This is business 101, not trolling.

Great opening week for Ni No Kuni, and that's just for the US as well. I can see it possibly reaching the 1 mil sales mark when all is said and done.

sunnygrg2142d ago

Level 5 said they would consider a sequel if it sold well in the West. I hope they keep their word.

olLANDSHARKlo2143d ago

360 up by 1.6 million worldwide.

BattleAxe2143d ago

And down by 5.4 Million since launch.
