Since when was NS an 8th gen console?

You can’t have a chart like this without including Wii U sales

Poor WiiU. Even in passing you still don't get the recognition you deserve. Switch is N's 9th gen offering despite it having many of its ports from 8th gen games.

The Wii U never earned a respectable place in the history of gaming consoles, it was an awful system completely based around an unappealing, distracting gimmick. The sooner it's forgotten, the better.

This is cheating! Wii U should replace NS! Then you will see the gap!
