PlayStation 4, Xbox One Unlikely to Sell Better than Wii U

Tynan Muddle at Aussie-Gamer.com writes: "While it would make a sensational tabloid story, the next generation consoles PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are unlikely to sell better than Nintendo’s Wii U console.

Since the day Nintendo announced a release date for the Wii U, the American media has done its part to stir the pot by declaring the console “dead in the water”. The justification here is usually chalked up to “poor sales” and a “lack of games”.

It’s surprising, then, that the other new consoles aren’t being treated with the same level of intense scrutiny (Xbox One DRM issues aside). In fact, media are already declaring the PlayStation 4 as the winner of all things.

The reality is far less entertaining: neither of the consoles from Sony or Microsoft will do any better than Wii U. And here’s why." (PS4, Sony, Wii U, Xbox One)

Between the PS3, 360, and Wii, over 250 million consoles have sold. Taking into account RRoD and people who own multiple consoles, it would be safe to say there were at least 200 million console owners last gen.

And now they're just going to...vanish? I don't think so. The Wii-U is selling poorly for a number of reasons. Some of those reasons are economic. Other reasons are because of the Wii-U's design.

Amazon still have PS4 consoles in stock. It looks like most people went with the cheaper version with no game being that's the only sku that's sold out.

there are some MAJOR problems with the Wii U
which reflect on its sales performance.

1. old multiplat ports which are not significantly better than 360/PS3 version means not worthy of a purchase

2. Nintendo's own lack of software and we all know people buy the Wii and Wii U expecting for Nintendo's own games but with the slow rate of Nintendo releasing them - not really their fault because there has never been a console manufacturer having to rely on their own software to sell hardware before, and with 3rd parties skipping the Wii U altogether left and right most notably GTA V??...the Wii U is not looking too attractive to gamers

3. lack emphasize on online portion. Nintendo should just stick out their heads out of their own asses and start acknowledging that online is pretty important to A LOT of gamers out there! the Wii U is more than capable for online MP but even Nintendo's own games are not online-enable thus making Nintendo as a game company look outdated and more importantly out of touch as far as gaming is concerned!

3. bad 3rd parties relation. this is just sad! never have you seen since Sega DC that huge publisher blatantly announcing their lack of interest in a game console and Wii U is not attracting as much interest from big publishers! EA and Activision have both being vocal about their disappointment over the Wii U and even Ubisoft is feeling cranky now! that's 3 BIGGEST publisher in the world right now and Nintendo need to act fast to gain their trust! Rayman Legends is already a lost cause for the Wii U and it's not even out yet but things are currently not looking good!

4. Marketing...they need more of this ASAP! Sony and Microsoft is increasing their marketing assault as of late and it's like the Wii U doesn't even exist! the Wii/Wii U is already stamped as the "complimentary" console as oppose to the "go to" console unlike it's handheld brother the 3DS which is clearly the "go to" handheld at the moment and Nintendo must act aggressively NOW to show that the Wii U can compete with the other 2 upcoming next gen competitor because as of right now, the Wii U is not even taking away sales from PS3/360!

my point is, the Wii U is not showcasing the lack of interest in gaming as a whole, but more of an individual problem of the Wii U itself! I don't know about the Xbone but the PS4 is ticking all the right boxes now and it's hard to think that PS4 will be anything like the Wii U sales-wise!

@PigPen

Keep at it, you'll get it right one of these days! Trolling that is! Because at this point everything else is wrong.

But on a different note, just on what the PS4 & Xbox1 have to offer, that in itself will insure that they will outsell the WII U in preorders as well as actual sell through, then again maybe not so much the Xbox 1, unless of course they are able to right the wrongs they tried to perpetrate on the gaming public.

@PigPen

1) Nobody has any PS4s or Xbones "in stock."

2) PS4 is currently sold out of its launch day allotment. They are still taking orders for future stock/allotments after release.

3) Xbone launch day allotment (the only available model to preorder) is still currently available for pre-order.

I thought the main reason the Wii-U was selling so poorly was because of lack of 3rd party support and lack of marketing. People have the Wii, why buy an upgraded version of that.

Maybe I'm wrong.
AsimLeonheart  +   422d ago
Since the Wii U flopped, the Wii U supporters have their fingers crossed that the Xbone and PS4 will sell just as badly so that they can justify their console's poor sales. Just like they were hoping that the Xbone and PS4 will be underpowered too just like the Wii U. They were so wrong that time (both consoles are much more powerful than Wii U especially PS4 which is a beast) and they will be wrong this time as well.
kneon  +   422d ago
@PigPen

I guess you missed where Sony told retailers they could now take orders for whatever they can sell. the initial allotments sold out in a few days at most retailers, and by all accounts the initial allotment was substantially higher than those for the Xbox One.

Since they have removed the caps it looks like PS4 production must be getting good yields and pre-orders have been high enough that Sony is confident enough in demand to commit to increased output.
gedden7  +   422d ago
One would think so BUT ALL CONSOLES SALE POORLY IN THEIR FIRST YEAR....
thechosenone  +   422d ago
Holy cow he's not joking. jejejeje The PS4 sold out in a matter of min on Amazon the first day and the demand was so great Sony needed to increased the first round of pre-orders to meet the unexpected demand.

While the Xbone took days to sell off their Day One version and it only took off once MS did their infamous 180 policy change.

If you look at their best sellers list for 2013 you'll see that the Xbone never managed to reach the #1 spot and the PS4 is still ahead of the Xbone by a huge margin.

In the UK it's even more dramatic, the Xbone isn't even in the top 20..it's currently #48. lol

Gamers play games. So far drive club and killzone are the big titles on the ps4. A lot of the third party games will continue to be on the ps3,xbox360.

Watchdog
Bops ghost
Will both be on last gen. Unfortunately that hurts the ps4 and of course the the poor poor Xbox.

This effect happens every gen it seems.

The wiiu out performed the launch of the ps3 and 360 off the strength of Nintendo land and Mario. No wii sports or wii fit? Guess what those games are coming. I can understand that the ps4 seems to be your flavor. Yet that may not change the fact that 3rd parties are staying last gen simply because none of the console makers have a FF7 type game coming out. It is expected for the ps4 starts slow due to release dates. HD games take a while to make even if you can only play them once and then trade them in.

I will get a ps4. When god of war comes out for it. Yet how many years is that? I'll be fine not buying an he console to play cod. I'll be waiting for rival fps controls to the pc designs.

We are 6 years into the hd twins trying to make a game to rival the underpowered wii game sales. From Sonys camp we get another movie game with no replay value. From ms we get drm and drm online milking.

Yet who knows it could be a ps2 effect but if you didn't witness that time then you don't understand the real reason why Sony sells. Every wanted a DVD player, then blu ray player but now what is Sony offering extra to make up for the lack of game play? This gen will be a pr benchmark for them or the gen they marry game play to this story gaming focus.

Ms has a Zune or ms surface on their hands. Their only hope is to dig deep and make a very addictive game that doesn't use online as a crutch.

This gen will be a wiiu/ ps4 gen it seems. Since they are both trying offer some thing different. Nintendo's flaw is not praticing hd production values 3 years into the wii sales. If you have ever tried to do hd level graphics knows it takes time to learn all the tricks and then it takes goobs of ram lol.

The beginning may be a strong burst in the beginning but many gamers may wait it out simply because we are being ignored or over looked due to certain agendas. But in the end we know Nintendo has the ip to finish strong now and hd content being mastered is only going to add to the collection. We know Sony will end up strong also because they can pump out great HD stories and if they stay devoted they will get the game play right. Mean while ms will just throw money into a huge fire like they always do. Or just start selling cable boxes. If you've ever work with ms you know how hard they can suck.

In summary Nintendo is learning HD. Sony is learning gameplay. Ms is learning pr. This gen will be fine after about two years in.

"Xbox 360 only managed to sell 940,000 units in its first four weeks, with PlayStation 3 performing much worse at 540,000. Wii, for the sake of having all the figures here, broke records at 2.02 million sold in its first four weeks on sale."

They make it sound like these consoles weren't in demand at the time. I was only able to pick up my 60gb PS3 by mid-December because I was lucky enough to show up at a gamestop that had received maybe 6 consoles in a small shipment. Even my buddy couldn't get a 360 for a few weeks after it released. These consoles had pretty big shortages especially in comparison to the Wii.
kryteris  +   423d ago
i believe the ps3 also had supply issues, it was sold out. But, the Wii was a sensation, Xbox did not have the hype of the wii when it was released.
GribbleGrunger  +   423d ago
Yes it did, because of diode shortages, but we have to be honest and and recognise that price must have been a factor. Neither of those problems exist with the PS4. There's a very simple thing that this article overlooks: People didn't buy a Wiiu because they were waiting to see what a next gen machine 'should' look like.

Wii U don't sell well only because we all waiting for X1 and PS4 and as always more expensive things sell slower. Don't think PS4 will have a problem this gen as it will be preferred by all the parents this Christmas because its cheeper.

Cheeper price was a way to success for x360 last gen and looks like sony learn the lesson.

A. RROD replacements were free, don't spew bull crap.
B. Poor Wii-U sales are from the lack of software, and I'd imagine 3rd party support in the coming future, not it's design.
C. You can tell by console sales over time that clearly not everyone jumps on the bandwagon for new consoles right away. Software sales on the PS3/360 will overshadow the PS4/X1 for a few years.

All that being said I don't think the Wii-U will outsell them, people want value and the Wii-U hasn't shown that yet. The X1/PS4 have with the software they've shown, and the future proofing they've established.

Uhh, while under warranty. Xbox 360s aren't under warranty for eternity.

They don't send you an Xbox360 S when your out of warranty 360 dies. At LEAST 20 million 360s were the old, defective models.

Whether they were free or not, gamers with plenty of disposable income didn't necessarily wait for a replacement. All my real life gaming friends bought 360s and most of them bought multiple replacements before they got sick of them breaking down and switched to PS3s.
MEsoJD  +   423d ago
I do expect a pricedrop near the holidays for Wii U and an increase in sales, but I it will pale in comparison to the PS4/Xbox One.

Why? Preorder numbers, features, online functionality and network/account policy, guaranteed third party support, expected media options, power that in turn will lead to longevity/support, a focus on triple A and indie(more so on Sony), advertising, etc... In my eyes an associate would have no problem in a store making the case to curious consumers this holiday season about Xbox One and PS4 vs the WiiU. WiiU to me just seems like a hard sell to the general consumer unlike the wii with the motion gimmick.

I really think Nintendo drop the ball on their year lead. I love their software, but I think pride and old thinking is really holding them back in certain areas in regards to home consoles.

JP1369  +   423d ago
The embedded RAM in Wii U is there to make up for the pitifully slow cell phone RAM that Nintendo stuffed in. The GPU isn't anything special and the CPU has ties to the GameCube. So yeah, that's why people are willing to spend an extra fifty dollars on the PS4, which destroys the Wii U as far as specs are concerned.

Funny how these fanboys like to mention the RRoD but always forget the YLoD. I for one never had a RRoD but suffered 2 YLoD and had to deal with Sony's horrific customer service trying to charge me $150 to fix it. At least MS fixed your RRoD for free, so stop with the nonsense. Every company has their good and bad. You look like children with your biased comments
kayoss  +   422d ago
Whats the rate of the RRoD vs the YLoD?? The number of getting the RRoD was really really high the point of failure is so high that Microsoft came out and admitted the problem and were forced to establish the replacement warranty. YLoD rate of failure was very low and considered within range for hardware faiure. But i agree, the $150 to fix is very steep. But hey its cheaper then buyiing a brand new system right?
Syntax-Error  +   422d ago
Kayoss, it doesn't matter what the rate was it still happened. That's just as ignorant as associating black people with welfare when there's more white people on welfare because of the W/B ratio. The fact is PS3 also had a high failure rate and there's going to be one higher than the other.
Eyeco  +   422d ago
That analogy is flawed African Americans make up 13% of the USA whereas European Americans make up 72% of the general population.

The 360 never had 7 times the install base of the PS3 for the most part the two consoles have been neck to neck yet the 360 still had a higher overall failure rate.

RROD was a travesty on biblical proportions and the 360 will always be remembered for it, so stop trying to sugar coat it, sit down and accept it.

Unless all these new games that have been announced will be released on the WIIU then I don't see it standing much of a chance of keeping up, not to mention outselling the PS4 or Xbox.

Plus most people want next gen hardware, not hardware that is somewhere in between. I will say that Nintendo was smart when they released the WIIU early, probably because they figured they would be overshadowed. But for me its all about the games and whoever has those games that's where I'll be.

Loyalty to a team is like loyalty to a console in today's gaming community. Its unusual to me because I like all platforms and I love gaming. And that's strange for a gamer to say nowadays. To translate that to sports, that's like a guy saying "I don't have a favorite team I just love football!" And not many people say that. Everybody has a favorite team...and that's okay.

When did video games become political?
"When Nintendo consoles start on the downward trend, they need only unleash games like Mario Kart and The Legend of Zelda which stay in the top ten charts for years, something no other game publisher has ever managed to achieve."

Well they aren't as arrogant as they used to be. But they do try to monopolize the market, which is why those who don't have the luxury to have more than 1 or two shy away from the "family oriented" console.

That's why there's such a rebellion against Nintendo.

- The 360 did just fine WITHOUT Japan, unfortunately they couldn't break into that market.

Sony is in financial trouble.
- Well, lucky for them they made the PS4 so appealing that they had to up production numbers.

The economy sucks.
- Yup, and what do you think is more likely, consumers buying a more current-gen WiiU @ $350 or a next gen console such as PS4 at $50 more.
A smart consumer would most likely go with the better value/$.

This is where the shit hits the fan.

- Sony/Microsoft have never bowed out either, so they are all in the same boat in that regards.

Only because of supply is true. Demand for the other two destroys what Wii U had. Nintendo marketshare and mindshare was being taken long before new cosnoles from all three companies. 3rd party developer support is radically different on the Home Theater gaming PC's vs Wii U

I'm Sorry but XB1 has the games and mass appeal hardware that is more advanced than the xbox hardware responsible for the Wii's decline(project Natal).

XB1 software and hardware will be the new Wii craz, making Project Natal theft of Wii appeal look like warm-ups. MSFT will release a payment plan for $300.
Micheal Pachter made this same prediction at E3 when he predicted MSFT would reverse DRM as I have predicted the payment plan for months(over a year) for the new Xbox One(360 payment plan testing the water for Xbox 720)

Nintendo was forced to come out with the Wii U tablet to combat Kinect 1.0 but Kinect 2.0 will destroy what ever is left of Nintendo. They should have done like Sony and copied Kinect. Even Sony knows the waggle stick was a bad idea to copy after Kinect, although the touch pad on dualshock is a half A55 attempt of the tablet as is PSeye4 is to Kinect(basically, simply look like you can offer what the other guys have)

Seriously the Xbox one hardware is garbage. Ms are horrible at building consoles. Anybody that buys an ms made piece of hardware deserves to fall in a well along with the other casuals. The thing hasn't even been released yet and it's overheating, un removable HDD it's the size of a VCR with a power brick, double A battery packs proprietary headset chords, gpu has half the power as the ps4 gpu. CPU cooler exhaust through the top of the console which happens to be the dustiest area on a console. That heat sink is going to get plugged faster then you can say rrod.

Using the Xbox one hardware to insult the wii u is asinine to say the least, cause they are in the same boat basing success off gimmicks and unrealistic promises cough cloud gaming ***cough. If cloud gaming was so bennificial Sony would have their gaiki cloud service up and running at launch but they realized better hardware is better way to spend money. Ps4 is a Aston martin compared to the Xbox one. It's almost half the size over double the power removable HDD, Bluetooth ( most compatible and versatile connection device) , built in PSU, faster blu ray, lithium ion rechargeable batteries for the game pad , faster ram, more ram available for games, non bloated os, easier to develop for, cheaper, CPU heatsink exhausts out the rear not the top. 21 exclusives real ps4 verse Xbox ones 2 real exclusives, having games on pc Aswell don't make them exclusive lol.

You heard it from me I'm strongly warning you gamers that are interested in the Xbox one, the the signs strongly point to ms creating another rrod situation the christmas. For gods sake the console is that big and under powered with an external PSU and they still had to down clock it. Ms clearly can't build hardware why support a company that clearly is in over their head when it comes to the hardware business.

I tried to post pics of the Xbox one internals and the size comparison chart that clearly shows the Xbox one is bigger then it's predecessors with still no internal PSU and heating issues, but it won't let me on my iPhone.

On topic I really think the ps4 will def outsell the wii u, I kind of hope the Xbox one doesn't though, not that I think it won't outsell the wii u I just really hope it doesn't because I don't think ms should get rewarded for their shoddy business ethics and enabilty to improve and innovate their console , adding kinect doesn't count. I'm talking about the console it self.building a console that big with no internal PSU is completely amateur, and I know some of you will say but it's better if the heat of the PSU is on the outside, well considering they're having to down clock from overheat problems, seems like it's not the PSU that's the problem.

If you still think 3 launch Xbox one games are worth more then all the obvious negatives I stated then I really don't care, and I'll be glad to not see you're stupidity on PSN.

you really are a broken toy, for one Sony's motion control system is not a copy of Nintendo's or Microsoft's as a matter of fact in R&D Sony was working on their method of invention of their motion control system while both Nintendo and Microsoft licenced theirs.

Nintendo's did not start until 2001 and their motion control method was pitched to them by a 3rd party, while in 2000 Dr. Marks showed off a motion control wand controller method with real running software on the PS2 AT A LIVE EVENT @ SIGGRAPH 2000, and again Nintendo saw the even there. where do you think they got the idea?

Again, Microsoft was at the siggraph 2004 event where once again Sony showed off the concept of a 3d depth sense camera working on again the PS2. MICROSOFT WAS AT SIGGRAPH 2004, and again Microsoft licenced the technology from prime sense on a 3d depth sensing camera.

You do know Sony was already showing off Kinect before Microsoft licenced the technology. Sony atleast invents, while microsoft just Licences their hardware. lol getting out the copy machine is not the same thing as inventing, and licencing something is not the same thing as innovation.

What I said still holds true. After all, the Vita just about decimates the 3DS in every technical category, but it didn't outsell the 3DS, and Price has a lot to do with that.

If Nintendo Drop the Wii U price, that coupled with a steady momentum of releases, they could very well end up selling the most units.

Vita vs 3ds:

Ummm.. you do know about the monopoly Nintendo has had in handheld market ever since the first gameboy in the 80s right?

Plus Vita is not for the 6-12 yo kids AT ALL! Every kid has a DS around here. My daughter was just camping with 10 or so other girls and she said that every single one of them had a DS. There you have it. Pokemon and Nintendogs and 6-12 yo kids. They outnumber the 20 or so demographic of knowledgable consumers who buy a Vita 4 to one. Kids' parents buy their kid the device they WANT and the reasons for a 6-12 yo kid wanting a device are quite different than it is for the 20 somethings who buy a Vita with their own money no less.

@insomnium2
I have a 3DS so apparently that makes me a child and/or an ignorant consumer? Grow up you troll. Its about price and appeal. 3DS has the price and appeal over the Vita. 3DS games > Vita games, that's simply a fact. Now shoo back to your bridge.

OT: I see the WiiU being the next gen console with the most sales by the end of this year. A strategically placed price drop around the holidays plus the games lineup is all it needs. I figure we'll see less and less sales throughout the years over all, mainly in off times like Spring-Summer. While the new consoles have appeal they don't offer much along the side of new and exciting ways of entertainment. Be it noticeably better graphics or new and unique features (for gamers).
insomnium2  +   422d ago
@brasi

Ummmm.. it's about price and appeal? As I said the Nintendo handhelds appeal to little children. That's their target audience. I really shouldn't have to spell out that the target audiences do overlap eachother since it's not fobidden to own a DS after you become 13yo.

You are being a smartass and calling me a troll for such an obvious thing? Please...

My original comment stands. DS and 3DS are for kids. It doesn't matter if you, me or anyone enjoys the games on it. It doesn't change the target audience.

Hell I bought a Wii and a 3DS to my 7 and 9yo kids one each (Wii is shared). I bought myself a Vita though so from our household it would seem that Vita is lagging behind with 1/3 of the sales. Does it mean that on a GAMING WEBSITE with NEWS FOR GAMERS we should now say that 3DS is the handheld to go to? LOL!

From what we've read, the author is way off when he says programming for the One and PS4 will be difficult to get a handle on. Watching Mark Cerny's recent presentation leads me to believe the exact opposite for PS4. One's memory architecture is a little trickier, but still not as arcane as PS3's Cell. PS2 and PS3 were both trickier systems than normal. PS2 managed to dominate despite that and PS3 came back from a late start and high launch price to take 2nd place over 360, which was inarguably easier to develop for.
TronEOL  +   423d ago
Given how crazy pre-orders are with those two consoles, and the confusing Wii-U marketing, I think the PS4 and XboxOne won't have any issue outselling the Wii-U, and fast. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if they both outsold it within the first year of their release.

The hype behind the PS4 and X1 is way too crazy. I don't remember it being any where near this loud when the Wii-U was coming out.

:EDIT: It's worth noting that I'm not bashing the Wii-U or anything, as I'm stoked for Super Mario 3D World (cats are amazing), Mario Kart 8, Windwaker HD and a new Zelda game whenever that comes out. I'm stating how it seems. The hype and pre-order chaos is way too high to think otherwise.

Actually the article's justifications are pretty sound and based on gaming history mostly. Basically it's tough to imagine the even ps4 breaking the 3 million hurdle on release.

No, it's because it totally fabticated BS that's desperatly looking for something of relevance to make it seam plausable. This is the problem with game "journalism" these days.

I work in this indusrty for a living. I have to keep up with tools, kits, trends and history. I don't know what planet of unicorns and fluffy kittens some people are living on, but this is absolute day dreaming analytics. What? no one payed attention to the news about who was supporting WiiU and who was not? The big buzz at E3 (and well prior) was WiiU being a profit killer, thus many folks decided not to take the gamble. More Indies (smaller) would gladly hop on board IF Nintendo ever gets off their high-horse and relaxes thier over the top reqs and does something to deliver more console sales. More market share = more potential sales for us. Less= less, real simple. And right now on Earth, the PS4 and XboxOne preorders, sales forecasts, investors, third-party support, indie studio support etc. are looking real good. If history serves me right, it was not this promising before WiiU's launch (excluding fan-nut gamer perspectives).

I don't want to see any system fail, I appreciate each company and the tech they are delivering, but right now WiiU is not a safe bet due to sales, third-party support and install base. WiiU came out weak and Sony and MS are coming out strong. Thems the facts.

They pushed hard at GDC and it's payed off if the list below is any indication. All those games are announced for wii U.

If you honestly think that ps4's day 1 sales will exceed 3 million units then you honestly don't know shit about manufacturing either. The author is very reasonable unlike your arguments which references no facts whatsoever and comes off as desperate denial. It doesn't at all say it's impossible just based on new console first year sales in history, unlikely. First year sales are historically pretty low since it's when those new consoles typically have few games and only early adopters are getting on board.

What's the launch lineup for either ps4 or xbone? What will they have the other consoles won't have already? That's what's going to decide if those consoles exceed wii U's preexisting numbers from its decent head start. Despite the doom and gloom articles. Wii U doesn't have it that bad. 3 million already exceeds the first year sales of either 360 or ps3. Sorry, that's the truth and it means ps4 and xbone have a hurdle to clear weather you find it to be, a "planet of unicorns and fluffy kittens some people are living on" or not.

I have every system and I love my Wii U. PS3 I use for excellent exclusives and free games with PS+. X360, I play my shooters on like COD and BF3 with my boys. Wii U, I play with the family and when watching TV with my wife. I dont regret buying all three. Wii U just needs more software but its an excellent must own system. Each gives me a different experience of entertainment. However, I love the Miiverse because I can play a game and post about it with gamers who love the same game.

Has the economy affected consoles? What's been the rate of sales for all the consoles since the economic downturn? Interest in these consoles far outstrips that of the Wii U before launch; I don't think the economy was as big a factor. Besides, people will recognize the consoles themselves as an investment; it'll be the games that are harder to justify, interestingly enough.

No, the poor marketing, lack of a defined identity, and dearth of compelling games- the staples, new IPs, and third party support- are all killing the Wii U.

Even if only 50% actually follow through, that would be more PS4's sold on launch day that Wii U has sold in 6 months. And this is juts Amazon's numbers.

I like Nintendo and I have a Wii-U but some days I really debate about trading the thing in because lack of games.

You do realize that by the time the PS4 and XboxOne launch the WiiU library will be... only one word for it... better right?

I don't think that the WiiU has a chance of outselling either the PS4 or the Xbox 1.. I am a Playstation girl.. have been for years, but the WiiU isn't even in competition with Sony or Microsoft.. It's huge.. and uncomfortable..
