Forums - Gaming Discussion - VGChartz not showing WiiU sales on mainpage for last/this generation

I dont understand why WiiU sales are not shown in neither this gen nor last gen on main page. I understand that the conole was only out for 4 years but it should still be shown in one of the 2, if you dont want to show it together with the Switch,PS4,XB, then at least show it on the last gen with the Wii PS3 and 360.

Just found the the all platforms link lol. Still my point stands, although I am guessing it is more of a space problem as it seems you can only fit 5 consoles.



Gotta wonder if they'll do the same with the Vita - now that console is officially discontinued.



I predict NX launches in 2017 - not 2016

At a certain point, the person doing the mainpage will realize the Switch is really in generation 9. Might not be until the PS5 comes out though. Until then VGC will pretend the Wii U never existed.



What is a Wii U?



Signature goes here!

The code of this website is so poor that there always have to be five consoles displayed in the graph. Can't fit 11 systems in there.



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

I haven't looked at how they're sorted in a while, but I'm guessing becase PS4 and XBO are still going and are paired up against Switch, they don't want a second Nintendo home console there. And if they don't consider WiiU generation 7, they probably wouldn't want to pair it with PS3/360.

If it turns out that it won't be able to run most generation 9 games, I'm not sure that would convince them of this.
Either way, as long as the current consoles are on the front page, and the rest can be found intuitively, the categorizing is not that important.

Well let's say WiiU never existed.

Poor WiiU. Everyone is trying to erase it from history. Though I still want its whole library on the Switch, sooooo...



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Well see, when it comes to the WIi U, no one cares.

It's that simple. No one cares.
