Forbes - Four months before Miscrosoft and Sony SNE roll out their glamorous new home consoles, Nintendo ‘s Wii U is foundering. This was the summer when Nintendo was supposed to leverage the fact that it has the only new home console out. Instead, Wii U seems to be losing consumer confidence completely even in Nintendo’s home market. The new Famitsu weekly sales numbers from Japan reveal that Wii U sales slipped below 11 K units in the week ending July 28. During the same week, the ancient PS3 managed to top 11 K units even though Japanese consumers must be focusing on PS4 already. Handheld consoles grabbed 72% of total console sales in Japan in the last week of July as Nintendo’s 3DS hit 55 K units in sales and PS Vita managed 17 K units.
