They lacked the Greatness.

The WiiU without a doubt, tops this list.

Oh Insomniac Games...going to EA to increase your userbase is like going to a loan shark/mob to update your business; it will never end well.

And id Software, you should have know that you couldn't live off of Doom forever.

And considering the fact that NO PS4 OR X BOX ONE GAME, could out sell SUPER MARIO 3D WORLD, And why is it there are NO X BOX ONE GAMES OR PS4 GAMES IN THE TOP FIVE?? Aren't they supposed to be the machines every one wants? Funny, how wii, 360, 3ds, and ps3 games dominate top of the world, japanese, american, charts, WHY WHERE ARE THE PS4 AND X BOX ONE GAMES??? try looking below SUPER MARIO WORLD 3D FOR THE WII U!! yeah, well see how the machines do from now until next year, and with smash bros and mario kart 8 and donkey kong all coming to the wii in 2014, expect to see mario 3d world, and these titles OUT SELLING ALL PS4 AND XBOX ONE GAMES!! No one can explain why Mario has sold more can they? Bring on the trolls and lame EXCUSES!!

SilentNegotiator1006d ago (Edited 1006d ago )

You're full of it. SM3DW had lackluster sales and in spite of the fact that its hardware has a full year over PS4 and Xbone.

edit: When Halo was the only really big game on Xbox Classic, it managed about 50% attachment. 1/5 attach rate for the only big (non pack-in) Mario game isn't all that impressive.

Where are all of the big non-pack-in sellers that are "distracting" people from SMW3D? People only buy Nintendo consoles for the exclusives, right?

SM3DW has already sold over a million copies, I wouldn't call that lackluster especially for a console with an install base of just under 5 million.

Like I said LAME EXCUSES!! yeah like I said here come the Lame excuses, anybody got a real answer?? why ps4 and xbox one games could not beat out mario 3d world!! so what the system has been out for over a year? why sony and microsoft sold millions of their machines in a week right?? so Mario should not have sold, because, the wii u is dead right? yeah, Boy are we that mad??? So far, over a million copies and still selling, how many ps4 games and xbox one games have done this, if you call one million lack luster, the chalk up the same for the ps4 games and x box one games that COULD NOT OUT SELL MARIO!!

AD7051006d ago

killzone shadowfall sold over a million and this is a franchise that doesn't have a huge of a following as mario or is nearly as famous.

How is the wiiu losing 2013 again? last time i checked current wiiu games outrate PS4/xone exclusives. SM3Dworld reached a million with a 5 mil install...

Not bashing Consoles just wondering how the wiiu is a "loser"?

prettyboy121006d ago

umm so did ps4 with killzone shadow fall,and that has less a install base that of the wiiu so whats your point?

_QQ_1006d ago

Both impressive numbers, which is why i ask how the wiiu is the "loser" of 2013.

TripC501006d ago

If Sales=Greatness then yeah the Wii U blows. But if Great Games=Greatness... Wii U has better games out as of right now than Xbox One and PS4.
