Aussie retailers neglect Wii U in favour of next gen hardware

Nintendo's Wii U is struggling so much that games retailer EB Games has bumped it from its website's homepage, favouring next gen consoles Xbox One and PlayStation 4 along with current gen hardware.

While Microsoft and Sony gaming devices dominate prominent placement on the site, the Wii U has even been bumped by PC, a platform that relies almost exclusively on digital sales.

Yep I think NZ retailers have gone that way too with dicksmith sold them of very cheap but i don't care. I'm happy with my wii u and it's about the games i like to play that interest me first then the hardware.

Okay ummm what games are you playing on the wii u.

I don't blame them, there isnt really anything on the wii u that entices me.

Why Nintendo isnt going for a best graphics console? Wii graphics sucked and WiiU graphics isnt even better than PS360

It's more like between PS360 and PS4one ~ a little head of old but more so behind current. That doesn't make it a bad console, you could have come back from the future with a PS5 but it means nothing but if it doesn't have the games. Like many others I'll be doing the WiiU/PS4 Combo.

there's no such thing as a PlayStation that doesn't have the games.

not counting vita of course.
