Xbox One vs. Wii U lifetime sales proves failure

Early sales of the Xbox One and PS4 are very impressive and show neck and neck, although you have to remember that Sony’s next-gen console has yet to be released in many countries. Either way, it will be a very close battle, which is more than we can say for the Wii U.

Let us first take a look at the Xbox One vs. Wii U sales in the UK. The Xbox One UK sales in 48 hours are almost 150,000, which is almost as much as the entire lifetime sales of the Wii U in the UK.

However, to put this into a greater perspective, worldwide Wii U lifetime sales are 3.91 million to date, which is compared to the Xbox One shifting more than 1 million units in its first day.

We have yet to see more up-to-date sales seeing as though the Xbox One was released on Friday, but it will not be long before Microsoft’s next generation console outsells the Wii U, even though Nintendo’s console has been on the market for a year now.

Surely this proves that the success Nintendo has with the original Wii was a fluke and that the Wii U lifetime sales has proven to be a failure because it has been unable to replicate that success.

A few months after the Wii U was launched there was still hope that sales would improve with the addition of new titles, but here we are a year on and things have not improved. And to add insult to injury these latest Xbox One and Wii U sales comparison are laughable.

Well, Sony launched in one territory, N.A. and sold over 1 million consoles. Microsoft launched in 13 countries and sold only 1 million. That’s 77,000 consoles per territory if you divide them all. Not impressive at all.

This was embarassing reading let alone the fact you should be ashamed to have written it.
My sincerest desire would be that those whom don’t lable themselves gamers tell you exactly why the Wii was no fluke. Though I doubt you would listen, so earnest are some gamers particularily on PS & XBOX to win some percieved validation.
This should be removed until the writer becomes more informed.
30+yrs gaming and a Software & Systems engineer and this is the most embarassing thing I have read, which this year has been a ocean full of embrassing nonsense.
