Wii u....it has begun!
awesomeabe1998  +   426d ago
It has begun and it will never be stopped! NINTENDOMINATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ashlen  +   426d ago
I hope so, they just gotta start pumping out the big name games. And a price drop wouldn't hurt.

I still think they can turn things around like they did with the 3DS. People said 3DS was a failure but a simple price change and a few big games and boom #1 month after month.

...selling slightly less than two 7 year old consoles.
Weird.

Pikimin 3 is neat though.

I disagree! Pikimin 3 is not neat!
AWBrawler  +   426d ago
but Wii U has a smaller install base in US by several millions, and Pikmin 3 still placed number 1. thats quite a feat for one of Nintendo's lesser tier franchises.
360ICE  +   426d ago
@AWBrawler
Given that Nintendo titles have been long burners the last years, it's not bad, but hardly impressive. Second place was a "Tales of" JRPG. Third and fourth were also Japanese (one of them on Vita). And this is the US market. It's not exactly high season.

Small install base? You bet. Strange that it didn't move more consoles.

On a sidenote, it's good to see creative Japanese games making their way to the States.

Damn, ToX in the top ten, also Dragon's crown. Glad to see them doing so well
awesomeabe1998  +   426d ago
Yeah they are still holding their own. The next months sales charts will be unique since the new games and exclusives along with the next gen consoles.
Minato-Namikaze  +   426d ago
Not sure what you mean, didnt august also have new games? I thought the next gen consoles werent until Nov?
awesomeabe1998  +   426d ago
@Minato

I meant that ToL sold pretty well. and that the next few months of 2013 will be interesting.

Wow, the Vita attach rate for Dragon's Crown is really high o.O

Considering that the PS3 has like 78 million units out and sold about 100k in its first week yet the Vita only 5.5 million and sold nearly 40k.
stevehyphen  +   426d ago
It's even higher if these sales don't include digital purchases. Of the 9 or 10 psn friends I have who play it on vita, the livearea said that 6 or 7 of them bought it from the ps store.
Brucis  +   426d ago
Glad to see Pikmin, Xillia, and Dragon's Crown doing well.
nosferatuzodd  +   426d ago
indeed we need creativity not just FPS every game because that's whats selling at the moment its good to see real games coming back and diversity l;like back in the old school era good job dragon crown TOX allso congrats on Pikmin well done Nintendo

Hi, i'm a police officer, you're under arrest because you seem to be happy the Wii U is selling better.

no no no - I am sure 1 person bought 15,000 Wii U s that week in order to win a bet w another poster on NG4 re how many more units would sell when Pikmin came out- it is the only logical explanation
HammadTheBeast  +   426d ago
Last of Us STILL in there.
Trago1337  +   426d ago
I didn't think Pikmin 3 would break 100k to be honest, I bought the game thinking I'd be one of very few to buy it, but I was wrong.

And it hit number one at that. But then again it's the first quality Wii U exclusive to come out FOR MONTHS.
KonsoruMasuta  +   426d ago
Gives me hope for Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2.

Yeah that what happens when a system has very little quality games. I think the same thing happened when Ninja gaiden came to the ps3 and geomtry wars was on the 360.
Realplaya  +   425d ago
I'm curious what was the reason you thought it wouldn't did you not know it was releasing in japan first. The game has sold over 250,000 so far.
SlapHappyJesus  +   426d ago
Dark Moon still holding in there.
Good to see. One of the games I plan to get with the 3DS, once the time comes.
Really not sure why I don't own one at this point.
LoveSpuds  +   426d ago
Still have a lot of fond memories of Nintendo so hope things pick up for Wii U as I am on the fence right now.

A few more good games and I may well pull the trigger.
CouldHaveYelledUiiW  +   426d ago
Surprised,

I thought Pikmin would break into the 10 but not No.1 in the US.

The WiiU sales are up too.

I WONDER about that other game, will it be FULl of good sales potential too?
xxPillsxx  +   426d ago
WOAH Wii U and PS Vita suddenly rised up hard! Maybe this is the effect of price drop for Vita? Whatever I'm happy for them!
CalamityCB  +   426d ago
When you said that the Wii U and PS Vita "Suddenly rised up hard!" I couldn't help but laugh, the internet has corrupted my innocent mind.
r21  +   426d ago
Strangely this was before the price drop announcement. I imagine next week the numbers will go even higher now. I hope, unless people are still resilient after that $100 price drop.
Minato-Namikaze  +   426d ago
The next update wont have the price drop reflection either. That week ends 8/18 look for the week ending 8/25 to see the price drop effect.
deep_fried_bum_cake  +   426d ago
No, it's not. These are from before the price drop.
Inception  +   426d ago
Really glad Dragon's Crown and Tales of Xillia got good sales. I gave a salut to Vanillaware / Atlus. And this way, Namdai will satisfied and bring more Tales to the west aside of Symphonia HD & Xillia 2. Maybe they can localize Tales of Destiny remake and Destiny 2 from PS2.
bjmartynhak  +   426d ago
Seems that people found a new version of the PSP. Finally!
stuna1  +   426d ago
If anything I'd expect the PS3 and Xbox 360 to start losing sales! With their next gen offerings on the horizon.

Looking at the fact that theres a $200 PS3 on the market now, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if the PS3 starts outselling the Xbox 360 in the US.

Also it's good that WII U is getting a boost! Now Nintendo needs to sustain it! By continual software support.
gedden7  +   426d ago
Good point but not gonna happen yet because the ps3 and 360 are cheep and good.. Their NextGen a good and $$$$..

Not everyone has the money to pay for a new console like that and so easy..
MadMen  +   426d ago
My god, the WiiU is dead.
Brucis  +   426d ago
Why do you bother coming to these types of comment sections? Is it just to rile people up? 3 of your past 5 comments have been saying the Wii U is dead. You've made your opinion about the Wii U and Vita clear numerous times now. Go find something to do that makes you happy and doesn't come at someone else's expense.

You sound hurt, and too me you are personally attacking someone and off topic.

Get over it, if you dont like what someone says, do not respond to it

Why don't you follow your own advice? xD
Gamer Muzz  +   426d ago
@MadMen
yeah, It's turned a profit for Nintendo,
has sold 3,600,000+ units,
has a triple A release (Among other titles) every month until the holiday,
Has a top selling piece of software with Pikmin 3 with more to come,
and has had an increase in sales this month.
So dead.

In response to your entire comment:
Couldn't the same be said to you? Yeah, I think so.

The Wii U lives! it may be in a small shack w no heat, air or indoor plumbing and have a leaky roof... but for now- but it does live.

a price drop and some more quality games may even give its hoe a facelift- of course if Nintendo used some of its $5+ billion in cash to see to it that great 3rd party sellers like GTA 5 and a few others would show up on the wii u at thee same time as other platformers it would help- Imagine if GTA was coming o the Wii U- it would be able to advertise the only next gen version of the game or at least first next gen version of the game
gedden7  +   426d ago
Look at Wii U jump a little in sales and in software! Nice Pikmin 3 on top of the charts...

Hey n4g, I need a new Nintendo Doom and Gloom article.. I could use a good laugh..
LiViNgLeGaCY  +   426d ago
Glad to see Dragon's Crown doing well. I am really loving the game, even if I am a little unhappy with how they handled the online multiplayer.
LOL_WUT  +   426d ago
Congrats to Nintendo ;)
CFDTBone  +   426d ago
While Wii U may not be dominating, Nintendo has 15 of top 30 spots. Nintendo, it appears, is far from doomed.
pyramidshead  +   426d ago
Jesus, that WiiU burst! o.O
PopRocks359  +   425d ago
Give the Vita credit, it's had a nice spike as well.
AKR  +   426d ago
I think Pikmin 3 has proved that the Wii U doesn't need to be revised, at least not in the way people want it. It doesn't need to ditch the Gamepad. It doesn't need a name-change and it doesn't need to be cut and replaced by a more powerful system. No, it doesn't need any of that.

All it needs - and this has always been the case - is games. Pikmin 3 is the start of a tsunami.

~ Wonderful 101
~ Wind Waker HD
~ Wii Fit U
~ Wii Party U
~ Sonic Lost World
~ Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze
~ Super Mario: 3D World

...PLUS

~ Plethora of indie-titles

AND

~ A nice batch of 'AAA' third-party titles, like:
Watch Dogs
Batman: Arkham Origins
Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag
Rayman Legends

...Say what you want, but with a line-up like this, the Wii U is bound to get a fire in its boosters...

Realplaya  +   425d ago
This is a pretty good start. As I said before Pikmin is the start of there good games but should have been the game they started with. Also a sleeper game that looks fun is Wii party U. My office has videogame days so I would love to bring that game in.
