So this is a wii 2013 vs wiiU 2014 thread?

Wow, 5 figures everywhere... This goes to show how Nintendo's mistakes in 2013 really have had large effects in sales... Hopefully there will be a lot more 6 figures in 2014 but with MK8 coming in May (I believe), I am worried that we may continue to have 5 figures till then... DK isn't powerful enough to move too many consoles and they havn't announced anything to fill the gap so I really do hope they implement whatever strats they have cooked up for the wiiU soon

At least 2014's third week is higher lol

Week 2 and 3 are 2013 wii sales, not wiiU sales. WiiU sales are much higher in week 2 and 3 in 2014 vs 2013 and was down merely 2k in week 1.



Man, it's almost hard to believe how terrible 2013 was for WiiU. Only 7 weeks out of 52 over 100k. I wonder if it can top it this year

Watch this space - counting down to the GOTG soon

EDIT: Thanks for pointing out... Fixed it.

Agreed... I expect at least 10 weeks over 100K and why are you wondering about 2014 topping 2013? It will... Wii U has bunch of exclusives for 2014, you got Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros U, Yarn Yoshi, Bayonetta 2, Monolith Soft's X, Hyrule Warriors, FAST Racing Neo... Some major third party games for 2014 like The LEGO Movie Video Game, LEGO: The Hobbit, Watch Dogs, Project CARS, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Child Of Light...

It has now a well enstablished library with games like Zombi U, Wonderful 101, Pikmin 3, Super Mario 3D World, New Super Mario Bros U(+New Super Luigi U DLC), The Legend Of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, Monster Hunter Tri Ultimate, LEGO City Undercover, Rayman Legends, Wii Party U, Sonic: Lost World, Assassin Creed IV: Black Flag, Call Of Duty: Ghost, Disney Infinity, Resident Evil Revelations...

Then you have backward compatibility with Wii software/library/games thus you can play classics like Super Mario Galaxy 1 and Super Mario Galaxy 2, Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition, Mad World, Okami, No More Heroes 1, No More Heroes 2, Xenoblade Chronicles, The Last Story, Pandora's Tower...



Don`t you want to add a line for cumulative sales? :)
