Forums - Sales Discussion - Wii finally loses its lead in the UK.

So it finally happened, the Wii lost its position of first place in a market.

 

The 360 overtook the Wii this week in the UK to become the biggest selling home console of the current generation here.

Which one will fall next and when?  Looks like USA to me, again to the 360, and relatively soon. 

 

Congrats to MS too for its first ever 1st place. 

 

UK

360: 8,723,219

Wii: 8,717,650

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.

that's a lot for both, really not many households left to sell some wii or 360 consoles to.



360 will end up far ahead too! Nintendo is stupid for how they have treat their last three systems. DS is the only one they have been smart with.

Yeah the UK is saturated for the current gen.  23m home consoles in a population of 62.5m is enormous.

There isn't much room for Ny current gen consoles.

All of the next gen is urgently required here.

gfk chart-track said 360 was less than 200k behind wii end of 2012. we have it at 110k behind for 29th december. maybe wii is little bit under or 360 overtracked by end of 2012 but the difference should be really tiny between bot right now.

€dit: but i expect that we get a statement of chart-track if it will happen so maybe wii is still leading.
