Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Wii U hardware up 685% in UK!

Wii U can get some hardware sales only for the Nintendo Games but that's not enough to be successfull with the competition of PS4/Xbone. I'm sure that Wii U will struggle to get 3rd party games even if that gets then it will have inferior version of PS4/Xbone with the same price point. So, why would anyone want inferior version for same price and also almost 80% of the people who buy Wii U will get either PS4/Xbone. Wii U is only for Nintendo Games so its sales will get high when a new game of Nintendo gets released and get back to normal when there aren't games from Nintendo. Nintendo is good at Handhelds where their IP's sell very well for Japan and good in World wide due to the popularity of their games for three decades and also their IP's are just Fun Games mostly like Platformers style visuals and gameplay, where Home consoles are weak in Platformers to become system sellers and they need different experience and gameplays in many games which is possible with 3rd party support.

ps3 gamers didn't mind doing the bolded. people will buy the game for the console they own.

and you people should make some new fallacies because this one is old.

Heh, makes it sound much better when you say "685% jump" instead of moved from 1,000 units to 9,000... But still something I guess. It's at least encouraging to know that a strong enough Wii U title will push hardware, even one that is just a remake.

I don't think this bump will last very long though..

Now if the sales would only stay on that level, which I very much doubt.

you'll have a surprise.

that 9k is more than ps360 do in regular weeks so it's a great start.



I doubt that this sales will drop that much again, becuase of the Lego City Bundle, that comes in UK on October the 18th and in Germany on the 25th. Plus, Wii Party U and Sonic Lost World are coming out.

it may or may not drop next week but after that, unlikely.

ps3 gamers didnt mind b/c as you say they'll buy the game for the console they own, if you bolded a few words more from biglittle's post you'll see that "almost 80% of the people who buy Wii U will get either PS4/Xbone' the key word being either if you have either a ps4 or XB1 and wiu the ps4 or XB1 version of the said MP SW will be purchased for either ps4 or XB1 for the majority if not all PS4/Xb1 and WiiU owners

 

 

OT sales will most likely keep slowly increasing from here on out do to the season and SW releases but 8k in UK and < 100k WW for this time isnt noteworthy or a sign of great things to come

80% wii u owners buying another platform? <100k? numbers pulled out of nowhere all over the place.

i dont agree with the 80% but in biglittle's post as awhole and the message hes putting out regardless of what the % is Wii U will continue to struggle to get 3rd party games, and wiiu and ps4/xb1 owners will more than likely not buy 3rd party sw for wiiu thats is also on PS4 and xb1

yes i believe vgcs final data for week ending 10/7/13 wiiu will be below 100k globally even with this news

Happy for Nintendo because they need sales but sad because it'll likely mean more freakin' remakes. Seriously people, the industry doesn't need old games, it needs new ones. Stop rewarding this stuff lol.
