Forums - Sales Discussion - PS4 v Wii U lifetime Japan sales.

PS4 LTD: 1.143.542

Wii U LTD: 2.226.797

PS4 with a strong start to the year. Software is looking far better than Wii U's and obviously being a year younger, Sony has more room to alter the price.

This was discussed some time ago, but things are looking better for PS4 now, and Wii U is stagnant.

What console will sell more this gen in Japan? And if you think it will be PS4, when will it overtake the Wii U?

I think while Sony will sell a bit more units in Japan, more software will definitely be sold in the Wii U, with all the attach rates on their games.

PS4 should match PS3 sales, the games are coming and in all likelihood as is DQ and Monster Hunter. PS4 will sale more then double.

That's most definetly not happening.

OT: PS4 will undoubtly outsell WiiU.



The ps4 will easily sell more hardware and software lifetime in Japan.

It's fully deserving too because it's consistently releasing new games big and small covering a wide range of genres. The gap will drastically change this year and ps4 will take the lead forever in 2016

The PS4 won't need as high attach rates though since it will have more games. So the software should easily be higher because of all the additional games.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Wii U will probably lose against PS4. It's just that the PS4 had a slow start in Japan, but it will catch up

No chance that PS4 will match PS3 sales in Japan, after 1st year have only 1.143k.

PS4 will sell more than Wii U, it will have longer life.

Why do you think that will happen. PS3 sold mroe software than the Wii in Japan, so you'd have to expect that the PS4 would push more SW without a userbase disadvantage.



Depends whether or not PS4 gets an exclusive Dragon Quest game. If it does, then it will outsell Wii U, if not, it probably will still outsell Wii U, but only because of a longer lifespan. It might not though.
