Forums - Sales Discussion - Nintendo totally irrelevant? Xbox and PS duopoly?? (Home Consoles)

It would seem the even though we are seeing holiday boosts from older generation systems the Wii U is actually losing sales week on week. Is this a bad sign for what is to come? With the PS4 skyrocketing the charts and Xbox one about to do the same we can expect Wii U sales to stagnate this holiday season.

PS4 will sell as many consoles as it ships; it already sold more consoles in 2013 than Wii U in North America. It is poised to do the same in Europe as well.

According to Microsoft and respectable regional retailers on this site the Xbox One will have similar opening day sales of that of the PS4. Similarly, Microsoft will sell every console they ship this year.

Xbox one and PS4 will both outsell the Wii U Q1 2014 despite Nintendo having a year head start. Do Microsoft and Sony control this industry? I expect lifetime sales of PS4 to be around ~120 Million and lifetime Xbox sales of ~90 Million. I expect the Wii U to place 3rd with about 20 million console sales.

I expect Xbox one to do extremely well in the United States and Western Europe. I think Microsoft will do solid in other parts of the world once it gets a price cut. I expect PS4 to do great in every region but not beating the Xbox One in the United States.

 

What do you guys think?

too early to tell.... but Ninty must be looking at all of this with some nervousness.

I'm not really here!

No problem. 3DS will have the handheld monopoly.

Nintendo will never be irrelevant, unless they go broke! This world will always have children who like video games, unless there's a nuclear fallout rofl

They may do 20ish million, sale some software and get by.

I guess were pretending like the 3DS doesn't exist?



I think of the console wars like the cola wars.

Will save the WiiU: Pikmin 3, price cut, 3D Mario, WiiFit U, 3rd party support (CoD, AC, Batman, Watch Dogs), Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros U. another price cut.

Will Save the Xbox One:  Titanfall,Remove Kinnect, price cut, next Gears, next Halo, another price cut.

Home consoles only. I'm sure 3DS and PSV will both make money

When did toastboy get back? Anyway I expected a real slow 2014 with a lot of games still cross gen and in the eye of a lot of consumers not worth the upgrade..
