WII U VS. GAMECUBE - CUMULATIVE SALES

Here is a look at Wii U sales when aligned with Gamecube sales. Wii U is at 12.6m atm, in the same time GCN was >18m

Back when the Wii U was first announced I was expecting it to reach a bare minimum of 80mil units sold. After the PS4/X1 reveals & initial release my expectation went to 50mil. But the fact this may be its last year before its successor and not even hitting 15 million?! Me from a few years ago would have been VERY surprised



Well Gamecube did have TimeSplitters, for that alone it deserves to be ahead!



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

The GC added about 1m to its lifetime sales in its fifth year. And to think that some people still want the Wii U to have a fifth year, let alone a sixth.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

So much this. TS2 was an amazing game. That, along with Eternal Darkness made that kiddie Celda game forgettable. =)

Pretty awful for both consoles, downright embarrassing for the Wii U. Deserves more and less at the same time (more for its game library, less for the awful way Nintendo handled its marketing and release).

2020 predictions: NSW 21m, PS5 6m, XSX 4.5m, PS4 9m, XB1 3m
(PS5 and XSX predictions will most likely change after we know enough about them)

Wait, so Ryng does this show that majority of the GCs lead comes from the US?



Awful numbers

Yes. USA was the bigger market for GC, indeed over 50% of sales coming from the US, while USA is only 40% of Wii U sales.

In Europe and Japan they are close, but GC is still head.
