Wow WiiU is dead in the UK (for now)...

Actually, the UK version of Walmart is Asda, seeing as Walmart owns Asda.
My local Tesco (A fairly small store) has a Wii U section.

I like how you make these statements with no proof or anything to back up your claims.


I was relaying my first hand experience of this evening when I tried to buy a game for my WiiU. How am I meant to provide evidence for that? Do you really want me to take pictures in Tescos?


Pictures in tescos would work.

USB is the cheaper better alternative

As you save performance as you lose 4,500,000 cycles (9/1000)s/(1/(500*10^6))s with a harddrive

and get more GB/Euro

I hope this thing picks up. Hopefully it will with all the cool games that have been announced. What are it's world wide sales like at the moment?

I went to Tescos this evening (UK equivelant of Wallmart) and it was one of those huge ones that sells absolutely everything. They had loads of PS3 and 360 games. They had some Wii games and they even had a few PC games. Handhelds were also well represented (3DS and Vita). They also had promotional stuff for the XBOne and PS4. Games clearly weren't a little side line, they obviously did a lot of business in that area. So what about the WiiU presence? They had one game: Lego City Undercover. They hadn't sold out of the others. They just didn't carry them. They didn't have a Wii U section. They just put the game at number 20 in their Wii section "chart". Foolishly I had been hoping to pick up monster hunter.

It's actually quite depressing. I know lots of people say the launch year is always dry but I can't think of any successful console that has had it this bad.


Brah you need to dust off your xbox
And I mean literally

Nintendo has always been dead in the UK.

Hell gaming as a WHOLE is doing horribly in the UK, always have, always will.

Using Britain as a way to show how well a console is doing is pretty meaningless, since barely anyone in the UK buys or plays video games compared to the rest of Europe.

If it's not sports or racing, then Britland won't bother.

As long as it does somewhat decently in the US and Japan, then that's all that matters.

Most shops at least have a small Wii U section but Tesco just mix it with the Wii.


There were absolutely 0 Wii U games in my local Asda/Sainsbury/Morrisons. I went to all of them last night. All 4 carried the console though.

No. Tesco is the market leading equivalent. I'm not talking about who owns whom.
