I won't count Wii in this since it breaks the cycle by being the exception to the rule, like Sonic Colors and Generations to the "Sonic Cycle". This thread is basically going to show the amount of decline/increse of sales in Nintendo consoles/console games. You could do it by yourself, but it would take a lot of typing and clicking. So use those reading comprehension skills I hope you have and look at mucho numbers.
Numbers are according to VGChartz. I know there's some errors, but we can go to an imaginary land where VGChartz is 110% accurate and just do this for fun with Rainbow Dash and the Twilight one.
NES Global - 61.91 million
SNES Global - 49.10 million
Difference in sales - SNES sold 12.81 million less.
US- NES, 33.49, and the spankalishis Mario box, or should I say, SUPER Mario box (Cuz it is a SUPER Nintendo) blah blah
I got bored of doing all that. I don't need to take 45 minutes to an hour writing all this on a Wii U GamePad to tell you all what I'm trying to tell, using a Google calculator to subtract 61.91 - 49.10. Basically, not counting the Wii, each console has had around a 10-15 million decline
NES to SNES - Minus 12.81 million
SNES to N64 - Minus 16.17 million (From NES to N64 it is 28.98 million)
N64 to GC - Minus 11.19 million (Average decline is 13.39 million)
Wii U would break the 10 million+ sales drop thinf, but only because there's so little to drop from with GameCube's sales.
But the main question is: Will the next console break the cycle? And if so, how? Leave a like, favorite, comment , and subscribe!
Oh, and for me personally. Wii U will sell so little that the next console will break the cycle by outselling Wii U.
Can't wait for The Zelder Scrolls 3: Breath of The Wild Hunt!
