"6th week in a row"

So even two weeks before Christmas there were no WiiU exclusives in the top 40.

Marinate on that for a while. Let it sink in.


There hasn't been a WiiU exclusive in the uk top 40 since 15th December 2012 when Nintendo land was 39th.

It's very likely WiiU not to have a game charting in the other countries too. The console is just not appealing at all.
It's GameCube situation all over again.

Lol they do say that. But when Japan favours Nintendo that's all that matters.

Well, it is kinda tough considering it is a new console... But then again, I don't really care that much, so I don't know why I am posting.

due to retailers charging us 50 not 40 what it should be like ps3/360. this is why a lot of wii u games gone on sale this weekend like ac3 for 30 etc once the retailers stop being greedy it should be fine


Most games have been always available online for 20-35. I bought Sonic Racing, Just Dance 4, Rayman (preordered) and Batman AC for 20 each. I bought NSMBU for 30 and Fifa for 32.
What's lacking in UK (and most of Europe, I think) is good advertising and availability. Many shops that are selling games still don't have a Wii U section!


Where did you buy them at that price?


where you get them at that price

Seems bad for this console, until you realize that the top selling game likely did less than 35K units.
And that a big new release (DmC) fell down a huge amount despite selling poorly to being with.

I mean, Nintendoom.

Only one PS3 exclusive in that list. Does that mean the PS3 is struggling?

Sorry for the late answer, at least I get to answer to both of you. Just Dance 4, Rayman and Fifa from Zavvi (Just Dance and Rayman as a preorder offer, when I preordered the console), the rest on eBay shops (not private sellers), all brand new and sealed.
Now playing: Dragon's Dogma, Batman AC, Fifa 13, Sonic Racing.
Just finished: Trine 2 DC.
