Forums - Gaming Discussion - When Will Xbox One Outsell Wii U?

Some time after the Ps4 lol



Around the Network

This will be by far Wii U's best year, so while it might be tough this year, in the long run the One will absolutely crush the Wii U.



I think the ps4 will outsell the wiiu by the end of march at the latest, and the xbox one will be around november.

You may well be right about the PS4, but with MK releasing in May, some of these other annoucned titles like Yoshi, Bayonetta and possibly X releasing in the summer, Smash Bros. likely in Sep/Oct., and the still existent possibility of Zelda U by perhaps Dec., I very very seriously doubt Xbone will pass Wii U in 2014 at all.

We have no way of knowing whether or not this will be Wii U's best year. Zelda may well not release until 2015, and Nintendo certainly has other big projects in the works that we don't even know about coming down the line for 2015, 2016, etc. I agree with your sentiment that it'll be tough for the Xbone to surpass Wii U this year, all things considered. But I have to strongly disagree with the notion that it will "absolutley crush Wii U" in the long run. I don't think that'll hold true at all. I think PS4 may (or may not) have this generation, but I think the fight for second place, at least, will be a heated and prolonged one. Nintendo isn't about to just lay down and give up, and they're not going to release another new home console anytime before late 2016, more likely 2017 in fact.

I would say that with the possiblity of a new Metroid Prime from Retro, plus whatever other IP they're likely/hopefully working on, with the near certainty that there will be a Wii U Animal Crossing, and the hope that it will be more in-depth and perhaps more MMO-like. With Zelda U almost guaranteed to be epic, regardless of what they do with it, the very real possibilitry of another, different 3D Mario in the system's future, as well as the possibility of anything from Star Fox, to F-Zero, to Kid Icarus, to Wave Race, some Excite racer, Punch Out, Kirby, sports titles, Paper Mario, etc. etc .etc., Nintendo has plenty of ammo it can unleash in the next 2-3 years. Not to mention the fact that it makes logical business sense that they will very likely secure some more "third party" system exclusives, and forge more partnerships for projects like SMT x FE, Hyrule Warriors, the exclusive Sonic games, etc.

Point being, I wouldn't consider anything guaranteed yet, and taking Xbox One's struggles outside of the US (especially in Japan) into account, I wouldn't consider them a sure bet at all. Point being, Nintendo, as of right now, still has a very real chance in this current generation. Perhaps not the "win" it, but to come in second, and to still perform better than the GC or N64? Sure.



I really think it will, when the casual market find out about how cool xbox fitness is on kinect 2.0, the console will get a lot of casual love (weird phrasing...).
It will not outsell the PS4 though.



My grammar errors are justified by the fact that I am a brazilian living in Brazil. I am also very stupid.

I disagree, the only game on there that will have that much appeal at this point will be smash bros and the POSSIBILITY of zelda. Which I've heard absolutely nothing about, so I doubt it's coming out this year. New games up sales for maybe a week or two usually. I don't see the other games uping sales that much, especially bayonetta. 



The day after black friday of 2014. The wiiu is essentially dead in america, and the last thing any video game manufacturer wants to be touting is "but we sell great in japan". Expect the xbone to take control of NA from the ps4 around that same time.



Looking ar the sales... not before H2 2015 I guess,

In case you haven't noticed - my post was a pun of yours.

I know perfectly will that CoD on Wii U is not a best seller - still, it sells enough to make it profitable. Activision will publish the next one for sure. They did it twice already, despite the low sales.

Everybody said that Ryse is "oh-so-beautiful", pure system seller. Now it's below one million. Super Mario 3D World became a third best (I think) seller on Wii U in 2 months. It drove Wii U to respectable 300-400 during Holidays.

Donkey KOng sold big last time. Of course It won't sell 6 million again (haha, not enoguh consoles even), but again, my post WAS A PUN. but 2 -3 million lifetime is quite possible. That isn't bad, is it?
Aaaaand that Titanfall - which, mind you, relaeses on 360 an PC too. You expect huge sales from that? Overall - yes, but it's not exclusive to X1, this will have some impact but not much I'd say.

Now, Mario Kart 8 is a Wii U exclusive, 3rd best selling game EVER. and a fan favourite Smash bros (even non nitnendo people like it!). I have a friend who plays CoD, Gta and fifa only. He said he's gonna buy Wii U just for this game, same as he did with Wii - bought it only for Smash Brawl.

I think that's quite telling.


I'm pretty sure what you did there wasn't a pun.  You juat simply mimicked his post.

If PS4 keeps on snatching Xbox fans as time progresses, it won't happen in this year or even next year. Nintendo has its own dedicated fanbase.
