9/10 top games are from Nintendo.

trunkswd722d ago

Nintendo always has the bestselling games for its consoles. It is a different story for Sony and Microsoft.

Meanwhile their both outselling the wii u weekly

Metallox722d ago

But a bunch of them are tanking, especially Pikmin 3 D= Even worse, Pikmin 3 in VGChartz it's overtracked, it has sold way less in North America it seems. I'm feeling the worse for the franchise :'(

Fullmetalevolust722d ago

I hope that more people buy the WiiU, so that Pikmin 3's sales increase. Perhaps some of the flagship titles need to be bundled together, like a WiiU must own collection.
It is a great game, after all.

MNGamer-N722d ago

I highly recommend Pikmin 3. And after you get that game, get the previous two and play those on your WiiU as well. Such a wonderful game!

Reeze721d ago

Pikmin 3 is one of my favorite games of all time- yes, it's that amazing!

For me the wiiu has the best line up of games out of all the next gen consoles. I have more wiiu games than Xbox one games and apart from Tekken tag 2 and COD BO2 they are all Nintendo games.

I really hope sales of the wiiu pickup but that said for me the best Nintendo consoles have always been the lesser selling ones in the N64 and gamecube. I am starting to get the feeling the wiiu is going to fall under the same tag.

Don't get me wrong I can't wait for games like Halo collection and Forza Horizon 2 on the Xbox one but Nintendo has really got me excited for games again which I felt towards the end of last gen lost this as it as all about COD, BF, FIFA, NFS, AC year on year.

I agree. Its not something news, it was always like this.

akaFullMetal722d ago

Surprising that ubisoft only sold 4% total of sales on the wii u. I guess I see why 3rd party dropped off.

akaFullMetal722d ago

Correction only 4% in the top 10.

"Broken down by publisher Nintendo has sold the most games for the Wii U with 5.45 million games sold. Ubisoft has sold 2.41 million games, Warner Bros. 1.27 million games, and Activision 1.19 million games."

Geekman722d ago

Lol, people said 3D World was a flop? How is 2.12 million units a flop? I guess people decided it was a fail after that one week Knack outsold it.

snookiegamer722d ago (Edited 722d ago )

It was Mario Kart 8 and Nintendo's E3 that gave me the impulse to purchase a Wii U. Honestly, I was totally surprised with it! This thing is current gen along with PS4 and Xbox One.

No doubt ;)

InTheLab721d ago

That last statement doesn't hold up when you look at the games that won't be coming to the WiiU based on what devs can and cannot do with the console.

marloc_x721d ago (Edited 721d ago )

Mmm...now, THAT statement doesn't hold up.

Vegamyster721d ago

3rd party games aren't coming to the Wii-U due to sales, not because of hardware limitations. If one modder can get Skryim to run on integrated laptop graphics I'm sure a team of Devs can port a game to the Wii-U.

Ok so if sales are the issue, why is the Xbox. One still being supported? The WiiU has 2m more users than the X1. Explain that away.

Surely you disagrees at least understand basic math and and possess some common sense. The WiiU is closer to previous gen specs than current gen. This is why some of the same people in the thread like to tell us how the WiiU is next gen for Nintendo and not simply gen 8.

And thrown in Rocksteady who already explained why the next Arkham title won't be on the WiiU.

Vegamyster721d ago (Edited 721d ago )

Yes it's "basic math", i specifically said "3rd party games" not hardware sales.

Yes i heard their reason for not putting it on the Wii-U, apparently adding the Batmobile requires too much lol.
