Some statistics on Wii U / PS4 / XB1 sales

#1AstralFrostPosted 8/5/2014 11:55:56 PM(edited)
I ran some numbers on the three 8th gen consoles for comparative purposes. For the release date I've taken the earliest date from wikipedia, total sales figures are from vgchartz.

Man at this rate I wouldn't be surprised if Mr. Iwata committed sudoku on himself

I now have 2 followers (Or 1 and his alt) that think I live with my mum who died in 2002.

Give me an updated figure and I'll be happy to accommodate.

If anything the Wii U figure is probably too high since its only units shipped.

Ponies will buy anything with PS on it.

Puts an interesting on things where people keep saying how the Wii U is selling over the XB1, yet the XB1 hasn't been out nearly as long. I wonder how it will look when the XB1 has been out over a year.

Those Wii U sales are pretty unimpresive
