... wow wii u got trampled by the ps vita just to start off with. lets hear what these spinderallas are going to say about these sales . . i want to see how these nes fanatics are going to spin this into a positive. the system is dead. . . 4 months into the market and the console is already dead. im not even sure if its worth a bag of skittles. they might even discontinue the system by summer but we'll see.

There's no denying that it's doing extremely poorly. I think Ninny fanboys need to wake up and face reality about the Wii U sales. Just like I did with the Vita.
xursz  +   578d ago
My last bubble. Make sure I have this right - Sony moved roughly 60k hardware, Nintendo moved about 45k, and MS moved 28k.

It's pretty obvious who own EU. Hopefully things pick up for both WiiU and PSVITA, after respective price drops obviously.
classic200  +   579d ago
LOL I remember how they talked about the VITA as a fail but now are using the VITA as an example of the wiiu and saying both will succeed.

Price drop I believe will be announce soon from sony for vita since the PS4 is on its way.

"wow wii u got trampled by the ps vita just to start off with. lets hear what these spinderallas are going to say about these sales"

The Wii U got trampled by a margin of 500 units sold? Neither one sold well this week. Simple as that.
aceitman  +   579d ago
The wii u only sold 31,000 for the week world wide , that's not good , the wii was selling 220,000 this time after it launched. If y disagree just look at the chart to see.

So you are comparing the PS Vita to a console...why dont you compare the PS vita to its true competitor the 3DS, numbers do not look so good for the Vita when compared to the 3DS do they?

Funny how some people see what they want to see.

Edit: Also where you when the Wii was killing the 360 and PS3?

smashcrashbash  +   579d ago
Wow. PS3 is ahead by a lot in the UK. If they announce a price drop from it when they announce the PS4 it will jump even further ahead.
Cocozero  +   579d ago
You do know Europe doesn't include just the UK right? The 360 dominates the UK more than its dominates NA.
2pacalypsenow  +   578d ago
So your saying in the uk it has sold more consoles than in he U.S ?? acording to vg chartz ps3 has sold 28 million and xbox 23 in europe
Aloren  +   578d ago
hmmm... no, that's not what he's saying.
stage88  +   578d ago
The 360 isn't dominating the UK. We've been Playstation central for a long time thank you very much.

Can you please give a link to the alleged xbox dominance of the UK?
Cocozero  +   578d ago

Ratio wise obviously.


If you lived in the UK you would know that the PS brand is becoming irrelevant.


Just look at the front page of N4G, or if you are blind:
torchic  +   578d ago

UK is kinda like a semi-EU nation. UK numbers are not included in Europe numbers.
GribbleGrunger  +   578d ago
Why are you lot even engaging in the UK argument. These are European numbers, which include the UK. Picking out one region to prove dominance is silly and pointless. Stop pandering to those people who just accept what they're presented with for goodness sake. 360 dominates America. PS3 dominates Europe. Nintendo dominate Japan.
LOL_WUT  +   579d ago
Wow, those are some sad numbers for the Wii U it got outsold by a handheld. On the bright side it at least outsold its predecessor the Wii. ;)
Tei777  +   578d ago
hanghelds normally outsell console...

Whats significant is that it got outsold by a handheld that is supposed be failing horribly
Knushwood Butt  +   577d ago
Wow, here's a new one!

Handhelds normally outsell console!!

I must remember to use that one in the future.
Tei777  +   577d ago

Well yeah thats normally the pattern. The PSP, Gameboy, GBA DS, 3DS all sold at a much faster rate then then pretty much all consoles bar the wii. Their sales just tend to have shorter legs then console

DigitalSmoke  +   578d ago
The Wii U isn't in compitition with the PS Vita.
Handhelds are not in the same league.

Shame to see this happening to Nintendo though, but ive said it way back that the Wii U cannot further the Wii's Succes.
mcstorm  +   578d ago
I agree with the Wiiu won't out sell the Wii and I've said this since the start to. What people are forgetting though is the Wiiu has had a very good start. Its sold more consoles than the ps3 and 360 did in there 1st 3 months.

Also the core market is very small now and alto of them are waiting to see what Microsoft and Sony offer with there next console before deciding what to get.

The main market which is none the none core are are not aware what is going on in the console market and if you look at the games on the Wiiu there is not much there for them and they also don't know the difference between the two. I saw a mum trying to buy just dance for the Wii and went with a Wiiu box in HMV yesterday.

Add that to both the core and none core already having one on the last gen consoles and there has been some big name games like nfs, halo, cod ect and people will not look to spend £300 on a new console to play the a game that is out for the console they already own.

I think this time next year we will have a better picture on where Nintendo are with the Wiiu in terms of sales as support for the Wii 360 and ps3 will be coming to an end and people will be jumping into the next gen consoles.

The Wiiu will be fine and I think this time round there will not be much difference between all 3 next gen consoles in terms of sales as they will all be going for the same markets.

"It sold more than the 360 and ps3 did in their 1st 3 months"

This is actually false. That was a rumor spread before Nintendo released their quarterly results.
MasterCornholio  +   578d ago
I know yet Nintendo fanboys compare the Wii Us sales to the Vita instead of the 360 and the PS3.

Just shows how hurt they are about the Wii U sales numbers.

Look i own a Vita and i know that it isnt selling too good right now. Oh screw it, its selling horribly. But even after knowing this fact i dont compare the Vitas sales to the Wii (in europe) in order to make myself feel better so that i can deny the poor sales.

If a handheld/console is selling poorly (doesnt matter if its made by Microsoft, Sony or Nintendo) then its selling poorly no matter what you try and do to spin the sales numbers. The best thing to do in this situation is accept the sales of the consoles and play games on it despite the poor sales. This is what i do with my Vita and Nintendo fans better do the same with their Wii U.

Wow another supreme x2 Victory for Sony and kaz harai
Tei777  +   578d ago
I'm happy nintendo appear to be failing with the Wii U. I think it will really push them to compile the best software line up they can.. All I need from them now is to distil the mario brand to 2 games only. Mario Kart and 3D Mario. The rest of the time they should be offering us something completely new
xursz  +   578d ago
I was about to hit disagree at first.
Sashamaz  +   578d ago
With sales this low, they'll have little to no 3rd party support. Nintendo need a miracle.
insomnium2  +   578d ago
VGC numbers are fake. Wait for official numbers.
MadMen  +   578d ago
The wiiU is doing horribly, like we didnt know that was going to happen.

WiiU is a failure.

It is amazing how angry and defensive people get if there is any indication that the PS3 is beating the 360 in any other country besides the U.S. If it was reversed I am certain you would not be questioning the numbers you see here.People are always yelling 'It doesn't mater.It doesn't matter'. Well you guys sure get antsy for something that doesn't matter so much.It reminded me of the people who claimed that the Wii's power didn't matter but got flustered and upset anytime anyone mentioned it.
