Do you honestly think 90% of Wii U owner are normal customers? Wii U is probably 70% owned by Nintendo loyalists and 30% kids that who probably feel tortured by their parents with the Wii U, hence the shit numbers it has sold. Most normal customers didn't see any value in Wii U and jumped on PS4 this gen.


70% nintendo loyalists is ridiculous. Here are some game sales (from this site) of wii u software. Games every Nintendo loyalists would most likely own.

Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze: 1,4 Mio

Pikmen 3: 1,06 Mio

Xenoblade X: 0,8 Mio

Zelda: Twilight Princess HD: 0,75 Mio


Here you have your "loyalist" Nintendo fans on Wii U. Around 1-1,5 Mio people (10%). 


Games like Mario, mario kart and splatoon are mainstream games, that got those high sale numbers.

You are making the assumption that all Nintendo loyalists buy all their games, after all the evidence we seen people write on here oh i baught the Wii U for Zelda lol. They all have different tastes. The ony common between them is Mario

How is Mario, Mario Kart and Splatoon mainstream games? Mario is like the cornerstone of a Nintendo platform. Did we see a HUGE increate in console sales when these launched? NO because the console is dead to the regular consumer.  If Mario and Mario Kart were mainstream games more consoles would have sold.  The fact is the ocmpetition has a lot more games suited to the regular user that they want to play.
