Wii U Lifetime Sales Already Exceeds Xbox 360’s in Japan

Minor victories are always welcome in these tumultuous times for Nintendo. The pleasant news this time around is that in Japan, the Wii U has surpassed the Xbox 360 in local lifetime sales.

this shows that MS better skip japan this generation and focus their ressources on their western releases.
Wii U sales are flopping and still exceeding 360s which has been around for 7years if not more.

seems like they are ahead of you in that regards. looks like they are only selling the Xbone for a limited quantity only in Japan for now.

well....THAT is how bad the xbox support in Japan is.

After 2 years, a bad selling Wii U, outsells the total sales of 8 years of Xbox 360.

When you put it that way, seeing how Nintendo is like in NA,SA,EU,Asia .....I would say they are all right.

Once Smash and Mario Kart 8 are here it will be better but those won't fix everything.

Somebody else has to catch lightning in a bottle.

Wow what an achievement!

caseh1441d ago

Honestly can't tell if that's sarcasm or not. :)

MasterCornholio1441d ago

Well good news I guess......

nevin11441d ago

Yeah But isn't Xboxone and PS4 already passing WiiU lifetime?

There's always one party pooper

BlackWolf1441d ago

That's irrelevant to this matter.

Mister_Dawg1441d ago

What's irrelevant is this article.

Not much of an achievement for a home grown console to outsell a US console, despite the length of time the 360 has been on sale.
