Out of curiosity, where are the Xbox One sales? Or is the console simply selling so poorly that it doesn't even register as a blip in the radar? Personally, I think the Xbox One will have the hardest time convincing people to buy it. Yeah, third party support will be better than the Wii U but then you could just get a Ps4 if you want third parties. What role does the Xbox One really fill outside of people who really like Halo or the Kinect? The Wii U, at least, has its own role in terms of Nintendo's own franchises. First party is something Nintendo excels at, not so much true with Microsoft. Combine that with Microsoft's infamous Xbox One reveal with all the security BS and the system's already off to a rocky start, not to mention the hardware is actually inferior to the Ps4's despite being more expensive.


In Japan it's doing awful. But the 360 didn't do so hot there either.

Worldwide, it hit 5 million WAY earlier in it's life than the Wii U did.


LMAO it hasn't even launched in Japan yet. Thanks for pulling this out of your ass.

I'll talk about what region I want to, thank you very much. Trying to close your eyes and ears and scream "THIS IS JAPAN" won't change the fact that the PS4 is dominating worldwide, squatch.

Hope this helps :)


Dude, yeti is just trolling. He doesn't give a damn about japanese sales. He's just trying to get a rise out of people........like you.

Anyone who thinks the PS4 won't surpass the Wii U in Japan is lying to themselves. Of course it'll surpass it, heftily at that.


LMAO I bet you were one of the Ponies shouting "1 million pre orders!!!" leading up to the Japan PS4 launch. Only for it to flop massively and lag several hundred thousand behind Wii U in launch aligned numbers.

Tell us another one. Just lol.


It's just an educated take on the situation. Reality is that the Wii U is a flop in Japan as it stands after 20 months, as it is worldwide. PS4 is a flop in Japan, but is doing very well worldwide. It'll be getting better support and likely better games because of that, it's not a comment on if I'm a fanboy or how great I think the PS4 is, honestly I don't touch the thing at the moment. It's more to do with how the Wii U has done. It's had a Monster Hunter title over there along with Nintendo's own heavy hitters and it still hasn't converted into sustained sales.

Now, this isn't to say that it's going to be a different case with the PS4, but come on, it's pretty certain that regular releases and a strong price point are going to shift consoles more so than what the Wii U has had thus far.

Not trolling, not fanboying, just pointing out the obvious way people should be thinking about the question.

Hey Yeti, did you forget to mention that the PS4 has already sold 9 million?"

Topic is about Japan only you neanderthal. Learn to read.


And yet no rule prevents him from posting about whatever region he wants. Sorry that reality isn't a nice place to you. :)


Nobody claimed it was against the rules. Just that his question makes no sense if he would've actually read the title before responding.

Reading comprehension, bro. Learn it.

PS4 and Xbox One won't even surpass the PS3 and 360 in Japan let alone the Wii U. The Japanese gamers that actually play PlayStation and Xbox are sticking with their PS3s and 360s, not buying PS4s and Xbox Ones. But other than that, this: http://img180.imageshack.us/img180/1379/nintendoownsjapan3kq0.jpg

What? You can't just post random information inside of a topic about a specific region and pass it off as applicable fact. Are you stupid? Reality has nothing to do with it. Stating that the PS4 sold over 9 million is all well and good but it has nothing to do with the topic on hand AKA it's useless. I don't give a rats ass if the PS4 outsells the Wii U but the fact is it was still meaningless.

Jesus the internet is getting dumber every day.

I think Nintendo is a much stronger videogame brand than Sony in Japan, thanks to Nintendo's stranglehold on the handheld market. If Wii U continues to lead there, I won't be surprised. Still anyone's game though.

Vita is outselling Wii U in Japan right at present. So you can clearly see how these results aren't final for an overall consoles lifespan.
