Forums - Nintendo Discussion - What's the deal with the Wii U in Europe?

 

The Wii U have been doing some good numbers on both the U.S and Japan, but what's the deal with Europe? 

But before everyone says the Wii U is also doing bad on other regions take a look at this (All credit goes to Chandler, sorry for stealing your images :p)

As you can see only in Europe the Wii U is doing below expectations, what gives? Discuss

There we have (some of) it. They are not very interested in New Super Mario Bros. U and already have PS3/360/PC for third party titles, so they will wait for more exclusive system sellers.

I don't buy that. WiiU has FIFA, that should do something in Europe.

predict! / Can 3DS outsell PSP? / Does Vita have better 3rd-party support in 2014 than 3DS?

Bet with platformmaster918 and ethomaz about PS3 overtaking Wii in total sales.

Bet with Lawlight: How many PS3 will Sony ship over 2013. He wins if that are more than 11 million, I win if it are less.

its easy, the PS3 is killing it. its cheaper with better online and much much more games. simple as that

Lack of ads before it was released
Overall lack of info
Economic crysis

in europe the people dont give a shit about xbox or nintendo home consoles anymore only the portable, atleast in my country when you talk about a home console you dont need to mention which one is it because you are talking about playstation, even in the tv you only see playstation and 3ds commercials all day

yeah it just sold 6.36 million. they clearly are not interested in the game. you do notice it sold in EU more than japan right? and WiiU numbers in japan are higher than in EU. its not because of SMB

I'd expect all dedicated Fifa fans to already own a console capable of playing Fifa. Wii U need more exclusives that cater to Europeans.
