Given there are 7 times as many 3DS owners as Wii U owners

#1BaronVladzPosted 4/9/2014 1:50:16 PM
How many of the 3DS-only gamers will be tempted enough by the Wii U's performance this year and with the later release of Smash bros to go out and buy a Wii U?

Globally, 3DS sales are 43.85 million while Wii U sales are 5.96 million.

Before anyone bashes VGchartz, they have been shown to be accurate for console sales.

And the retail titles of the Wii U for 2014:
January-nothing
February- DKC-TF
MARCH- nothing
April- nothing
May- Mario Kart
June- nothing
July-nothing
August- nothing
September- nothing
October- maybe bayonetta
November- maybe bayonetta
December- maybe smash

According to a certain troll I'm in possession of a time machine, as he claims he can prove I live with my mum... who died in 2002.

Depends on what E3 introduces and what other past and present Wii U titles interest a gamer

Maybe in 2015, the makers of the Wii U will actually, try to put effort into the system?

The Wii U is not a Nintendo system. If it sounds like I'm trolling, it's not. It's just my extremely low consumer confidence with the system.

Thanks for the rich contribution to discussion, unless you have a source for sales figures, these are consistent with the latest reports

You don't want to make the bet because you know you're wrong since your account was set up as a parody of Nintendo fanboys. ~DaLagga

Your definition of effort is slapping "Nintendo" before the console's name, kid.

I don't get it, are you trying to contribute to the discussion? Are you saying that the 3DS is not that far ahead of Wii U in sales? Are you saying the numbers are way off? Even Nintendo websites have reported similar numbers, how about some useful input?

Because all the Wii U has is (the definitive version of) SSB and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.
