Locked: Safe to say the WiiU is worst selling Nintendo home console of all time.

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Safe to say the WiiU is worst selling Nintendo home console of all time.

2012 - 2,247,216 (launch)
2013 - 3,113,285
2014 - 3,674,351
2015 - 509,493  (estimate for 2015 - 3,750,000)

If the Wiiu can sell 3.75 million unit this year, they are still 9 million away from matching Game Cube numbers. I'm thinking the last big year for WiiU is 2016. Expect sharp decrease before it's eventually discontinued. 

**There already rumors of a new console from Nintendo in the works.

**Seem like Zelda will be the last AAA Nintendo consoles on the system release in 2016. 

**3rd party support is all but gone

**Nintendo doesn't seem keen on dropping the price, they might simply prefer to abbadon the WiiU for the next console.

Of course it's safe to say. It is. That's a fact.

Oh, you mean like considering the future. But yeah, it still is safe (which is a shame since at some point I thought it would do much better).

Edit: and about the new console, don't expect that so soon. It's bound to come in 2017 at earliest, and even then it could be a handheld. Still, I agree that 2016 will be its last big year, with probably stuff like Zelda, Metroid and Animal Crossing. Can't think of much more they would release for the system after that.



Yeah, it's almost safe to say that unless something magical happen. It may hit 20million though.



Very safe thing to say. Its a shame though, its a quality console and there's a lot of fun to be had on it :(

Your right until proven otherwise.

Get ready to have this thread bumped in 5 years "if" WiiU passes Gamecube.

Boy, get ready to be OWNED in 5 years! Won't you feel silly ;P

Older and wiser. Still bias and proud though ;)

I'm not sure why this is even a topic anymore, this has been clear to most people for quite some time now.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

There's no denying this, that's for sure.

As a fan of Nintendo and Super Smash Bros, it pains me a bit to admit this, but it's the truth.



I think it was safe to say that a while ago for better or for worse. Unless Nintendo decides to keep it alive for a lot longer than anticipated, I don't see it turning around
