Of course Wii U outsells PS4 in japan with the arrival of Mario Kart 8, one of the best games of next gen...

DanManDantheMan1478d ago

That was last week though. MK8 didn't release

Geobros1478d ago

Yes I know but I wanted to say that japanese were preparing for his arrival. Nest week numbers will be even better...

Anybody saw where the WiiU charted on Amazon U.S? PS4 was #7 when I checked.

Currently WiiU is at #60 while PS4 is #11. So why would you care if the system outsold the PS4 by 1,000 in Japan when the U.S. the PS4 will outsell by 10-20,000 units. Also PS4 outsell the U by 20-30K in Europe.

LOL, the one at #60 is the standard Mario and Luigi bundle and not the new Mario Kart 8 bundle.
How can the Wii U Mario Kart 8 bundle be selling if it is not being available to sell?

If you look at site that actually have both the Wii u/Mario Kart 8 bundle and PS4 in stock, the Wii U is currently at#5 and the PS4/XB1 are nowhere to be found in the first 4 pages.

It outsold by 1500k unit in Japan.
That ain't much.
We'll see how much they'll sell with the arrival with Mario Kart 8.

People get bits and jobs early tho ie console and accessories one week and a game of course to get it all set up and then get another amazing game the following week, what a time to join tho this mario kart is the nuts!

DarthZoolu1478d ago

Both quantities are extremely low, though.

Foraoise1478d ago

It's a bi title of course it outsold the ps4. I love my ps4, and I don't even have a wii u, but with a release this big, how is it even a surprise? I expect the same with Smash Bros.

When the PS4 releases titles such as InFAMOUS, you'll see spikes in PS4 sales as well.

Theyellowflash301478d ago

Not in Japan at least. North America and Europe for sure.

The only software coming sometime soon for Japan that can really move PS4's is Kingdom Hearts 3 and Final Fantasy 15.

And Metal Gear Solid 5, but that's coming to the PS3 too. The PS3 is still going strong in Japan, although it didn't really sell that great compared to the PS2 or PS1 in Japan.

Phantom pain is current gen only, not last.

Realplaya1478d ago

You say soon but is there a release date for KH 3 yet. What if it slips into 2015 summer?

Ol_G1478d ago

well infamous released last week in japan and the result was wii u selling more with no games out so i wouldn't count on that

hkgamer1478d ago

ps4 japan sales has been a little dissapointing. probably need a big japanese realease like ff.

dont want to take the success nintendo is getting though. havent seen the numbers but hopefully this game would help them with sales

Spooney3231478d ago

To their fans they can do no wrong.

Sincere01211477d ago

To their haters they can do no right

ricochetmg1478d ago

The Nintendo apologist are here to defend. When they should be persecuting

R00bot1478d ago

Why would they be persecuting good news?

randomass1711477d ago

I think he's trying to say Nintendo did something bad to Nintendo fans... but the news in question has nothing to do with that.
