Japanese sales charts – Wii U sees small gain among stiff competition

Wii U sales

Sales numbers for last week in Japan have been released and we’re surprised to see the Wii U enjoyed an uptake of around two thousand units or so. This week in Japan gamers were inundated with new titles, with eight of the top ten spots being new releases. The two stragglers in the top ten were released earlier and include Yokai Watch at number eight, and Dark Souls II at number ten.

Despite dominating the top of the chart with Mario Party: Island Tour, the Nintendo 3DS appears to be losing its stranglehold on Japan to Sony, as PS3/PSV/PS4 games make up the bulk of the top ten that used to be 3DS games. No new Wii U titles were released.

  • Vriska Serket

    We can only hope the same trend continues glo8ally.

    • bistricky

      Wii U sales in all regions have seen a small increase week over week, in recent weeks. Not sure why that is.

  • LeonelJKier

    I hope this continues, i fear for nintendos future… how much longer will they last? http://num.to/834.920.855.150

  • Pinky Peach

    And again, 3DS XL and normal 3DS are separated… With that it is still the best selling hardware. I am happy for Wii U and the Vita, though, hope this increase continues for the Wi U. I also didn’t know Mario Party was that good at selling……

    • Vriska Serket

      It was actually just released in japan on March 20th.

      • Pinky Peach

        Oh, didn’t know that. I will have to edit the comment then.

  • starwars360

    Mario Kart 8 and some of Wii U’s killer app titles, some 3DS upcoming games, some PS4’s killer app titles and PS Vita too will boosts up sales later this year. With Xbox One, we will see it very poorly like 360’s life of cycle in Japan.

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    Who would of thought that PS Vita would be up in the top of the list. Wii U, PS4 and 3DS got a good boost in sales. Pretty good week for Japan.

    • Pinky Peach

      Ya. I hope this continues for Wii U’s sake……….

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        Indeed. 3DS is fine, but the Wii U’s sales are uncertain.

    • David Trail

      It’s still doing badly dude.

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        35,374(28,270) -Vita
        30,201(29,677) – PS4

        Dunno man, compared to Wii U and 3DS, I’d say it’s doing quite well. Not sure what chart you were looking at, but you certainly came unprepared, again. Lemme guess, you’re going to use the “Mario Kart will make sales rise!” argument that moves away from the topic? ;P

        • David Trail

          I’m talking lifetime sales dude. Wii U is beating 3DS and 3DS is going to sell more than PS4, way more.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            3DS is a handheld, so it’s usually expected. Though, two different markets as well, so there’s that too. If you wanna talk lifetime sales, with the lack of third party from Nintendo, it’s obvious that PS4 and even Xbox One will be beyond Wii U in sales at the end of this generation. I won’t deny that Nintendo has 1st party that sells, but by itself, it won’t be enough to make Wii U a winner. Unless decent third party comes in, even the biggest heavy hitters like Mario Kart 8 won’t be enough to push it over. Perhaps early on, but not in the long term. Though, I don’t expect you to understand that, not that you gave a reason to believe so.

          • David Trail

            Don’t get cocky. Ps4 will only sell 7.5 million by the end of the year. Maybe 8 million. Not that much considering all the hype, advertisement and cough third party support.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Considering it’s at 6 million already and with the sales still up, it’s projected to go pass that Davey and I’m sure deep down you know that. There’s noting to be cocky about. It’s pretty much the truth in the long term. If Wii U doesn’t have third party backing it up, then it’s got a rocky future.

            You may feel that those third parties aren’t up to par in your opinion, but they are a must for any console to be a huge success and Sony and Microsoft know that. Wii had a lot of hype and advertisements as I’m sure you know too, so your point fails there. Sony is smart to keep ads going and so is Microsoft. Nintendo keeps their ads to a limit, and it’s part of the reason the Wii U isn’t selling.

          • David Trail

            Ha guess you’ll be disappointed at the end of the year. Just like the Infamous SS metcaritic score ; )

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            You certainly have your own reality, I’ll give you that. Though, it means little to the real world Davey boy. So far, you’re about te only poster who worries over metacritic scores. I’ll be right here being impressed with PS4 sales and with any luck, Wii U will have more too offer than 1st party. Maybe by then, you’ll mature up a little. ;P

          • David Trail

            Crappy third party games like Thief and broken Battlefield…

            I’ll keep my exclusives mate!

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I think those third parties can live with your opinion. ;P

          • David Trail

            It’s metacritic opinion as well ; )

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Yep. Which makes it about as relevant as yours. Thank you for proving my point. Come back when it becomes a fact.;P

          • David Trail

            What games do you play on your ps4? Complete in a weekend Infamous? Crappy Knack, Broken Battlefield, COD Ghosts lol?

            PS4 is pathetic!

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Resogun, Infamous Second Son are among my favorites. I find them quite entertaining. Just as I find your spaz comments entertaining. Whether you feel PS4 is pathetic or not, it’s the big seller. Considering you bash it on a normal basis, I’m gonna take it that you have a crush on it? ;P

          • lonewolf

            But lets face it sony has only one game that worths getting and thats infamous second son (from what i have seen on youtube its a great game good beginning story (have seen only one hour in the game) and sony promised last year that it will have 120 games released by nowor they are still in development (i am talking about exclusives) or i have heard something wrong? However there are no firstparties at the moment for sony i mean good ones expect second son.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            True. Though, will that be the case in the long term? We both know 1st party will be coming. It’s really no different for Wii U in it’s first year. Difference is, PS4 has a lot going for it in the future with third party and indies. Wii U has to depend on those indies since third party is absent. PS4 and even Xbox One won’t have those issues. Despite the big exclusives being absent on PS4 right now, it’s not hurting its sales. Over a year later, and Wii U sales are still low.

          • lonewolf

            Well yea the only problem is the third party defelopers and i dont blame nintendo for that but still there are few 3rd party games coming to wii u and they are all big name games. And there are also a lot of indie exclusive wii u games. Half of them are either exclusives or sold both at pc and wii u. And around 10% are multiplat indie games. And with the unity 5 engine the graphics of the indie games will step up big time and all those wannabe graphics gamers would buy some wiiu’s for some great looking wii u indie exclusives. Wellits just my way of looking at things. No one knows what might happen the only option is to wait and see.

          • oontz

            Don’t forget every multiplat 3rd party home console game is better on ps4. We are also getting great free software for being ps+ members. Resogun, Warframe, contrast, don’t starve, outlast, are all fun and enjoyable games… And they were all free. Not to mention Killzone, Metal gear V, and infamous.

            The ps4 is a solid gaming machine, that will only continue to get more /better content as time goes on.

          • David Troll

            5 months too long! PS4 is selling badly! Wii U has been out over a year! Oh wait…that made zero sense. I still haven’t lost my edge! LMAO! LMAO!

            Excuse me but I can’t go a comment without a Wii U >PS4 and have zero reasoning behind it! ;)

          • Ducked

            You’re forgetting KillZone Shadowfall. And PS4’s lifetime sales have already passed Wii U worldwide. And Wii U came out a year earlier. Why do you care so much about sales? It won’t change the way you play your Wii U. All the Wii U had when it launched was a 2D Mario game, so there’s no bragging there.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Exactly. Also at that point, sales for Wii U were low each week and even right now. PS4 has been consistent since its launch.

          • james

            Battlefield 4 is great, tons of fun. It had some connection issues early on but is definitely not broke. I play it on Xbox One though, not PS4.

          • InterTreble

            You won! ;)

          • David Troll

            I know! I win when it comes to trolling. Common sense is much too hard for me to understand. Fanboy logic ftw! Lmao!

          • Carlos Webster

            He didn’t yell or call you names. He’s pretty mature to me.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Blindly calling anything on PS4 crap and leaving posts calling posters out in the comment section, is immature. If you didn’t catch that posting on this article, then I suggest looking back. You can still be immature and not call names or yell. Lol. ;P

          • Carlos Webster

            I’m talking about his behavior TODAY.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Again, look around the comments on this article, and you’d see that his behavior isn’t any DIFFERENT from other days.

          • Carlos Webster

            He at least didn’t call anyone crap.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            It doesn’t change the fact that he’s immature. I’m sure you know that and the evidence all over this article backs it up to a T. So he doesn’t get a pass on this one. Poor behavior is never excused.

          • ComposedJam

            You calling someone immature is like the pot calling the kettle black.

            except, the pot is an even darker shade of black than the kettle. You’re posts seriously disgust me sometimes.

          • Carlos Webster

            Darnit, I wish you bashed the Crapbox One instead of the AwesomeStation 4.

          • oontz

            “Ps4 will only sell 7.5 million by the end of the year. Maybe 8 million. Not that much”

            More than the wiiu did in the same time though, right?

          • Capt. Smoker

            I can’t seem to keep a straight face reading this

          • Vriska Serket

            “Ps4 sucks lmao” “xyz > ps4″ infamous second sun is not as good as asdfghjkl” “ps4 is not good” “infamous is like the worst game” “ps4″ “infamous” “ps4″ “infamous” “ps4″ “infamous” “ps4″ “infamous” “>” “lmao”

            ALRIGHT WE GET IT

            You forgot justin Bieber.

          • David Troll

            I’m a huge Justin Bieber fan! I wanna be just like him and I’m not too far off! Just look at my senseless posts!

          • oontz

            L O L

          • oontz

            So now you’re comparing home consoles to handhelds and vice versa?

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            He’s flip flops often. He was doing so well for a bit last night in having a half decent convo. Naturally, he goes off the deep end. ;P

          • oontz

            He usually starts off the deep end.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            LOOOOOL

    • Zuxs13

      8 new games in the top ten will do that. It appears that those games also spurred wii udaily sales too. Either that or the news of GBA games coming out had something tk do with it.

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        Indeed. Was a good week for Sony in Japan. Nintendo had a decent boost, which they’ll happily take than another dip.

      • David Trail

        Mario Kart 8 out soon dude as well!

    • Luna Moonfang

      Actually, the total sales for the 3DS is about 40k. (3DS+3DS XL)
      But still, yeah! pretty good sales for the Vita.

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        PS4+Vita sales 65,575
        Wii U +3DS 50,258

        3DS and 3DS XL are considered two different things on the market. Though, if we are gonna combine sales, then we can.

        • Luna Moonfang

          Got it. (i’m kinda new in this stuff)

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Don’t get me wrong, you’re right when 3DS and XL sales are combined. It’s just not counted that way in terms of sales figures. I kept it fair by combining the current consoles and handhelds. 50k in sales isn’t bad either for Wii U and 3DS/XL, so it’s nothing to sneeze at.

        • GABRIEL GARCIA

          Check this out bro ;)

          • GABRIEL GARCIA


            ,

        • BuckStud

          Your logic is flawed in so many ways. First, all tracking other than the tracking for Japan groups the 3DS and 3DS XL. Second, why would you combine PS4 and Vita instead of the Vita TV. So, like anyone with a least a few brain cells would see….3DS: 40,276 … Vita: 37,128.

          To use your argument, the PS3 FAT, Slim and Super Slim should have all been tracked separately as they were three “different things on the market”… as should the PS Vita with OLED and the Vita with LCD.

          You fanboys love to spin everything in your favor.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            It’s not spinning anything. If you are going to combine 3DS and XL when they are two different consoles on sales charts, then I’m free to combine sales too. There’s nothing fanboy about that. Lol. That’s how charts are done. Anyone with a few brain cells can comprehend that, except you of course. YOU fanboys love to spin the news around and try to take away from Vita’s successful week. I don’t see where I said that 3DS had a horrible weak. So your point is flawed in every direction. Time to get off that high horse dude and accept that Nintendo can’t have the better week all the time. Next time, try responding more maturely instead of the usual fanboy antics. ;P

          • ComposedJam

            You’re retarded as usual Daniel.

            The first guy was obviously comparing the psvita to the 3ds. He combined the two different sizes of the 3ds because they are the same product shaped differently.

            This list may see them as separate products, but at the end of the day when we talk about 3ds sales we’re not going to separate them. It won’t be 3ds (includes xl model) it’s just the 3ds.

            You started combining things that were unrelated in comparison in an attempt to be argumentative.

    • Capt. Smoker

      Fanboy arrival imminent

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Wii U is clearly in its death twitches. That can create the illusion of life, but its the nerval system who is closing down. Its very sad, who would have thought it would go this far? Maybe it wasnt a bad idea that Nintendo will focus on the fitness industry instead of gaming? The old dinosaur might do some good running on the mill.

      • René Park Triolo

        Hehe… there you go again, Magnus… so poetic and full of colourful imagination. The Wii U is far from dead, and you know it… you’re just trying to provoke people again… great sense of humour, by the way, and the best thing is that people fall for it. :D

        … and by the way… the WiiU doesn’t have tlme to die with all those great games coming for it, so let’s just enjoy it and be happy. :)

        • GABRIEL GARCIA

          Well say it bro!!! By The way check this nice video that is running on the web enjoy it! ;)

        i just dont understand it hasnt even passed its 2nd birthday so STOP ASSUMING THINGS EARLY!

    • Shane Michaels

      Yeah, pretty decent sales, considering mid year drought and 1 year on the market. Stuff is happening, so you can imagine it’s getting out. Nintendo probably does more in Japan than here in the U.S. Sony is no doubt pushing it hard.

    • GABRIEL GARCIA


      Nice!

    • Commander Raichu

      OH YES BABY DAH VITAS COMIN BACK DAH VITAS COMIN BACK!

  • ZeldaFan83

    That’s not really an increase. The sales numbers are still staying around the same, under 10,000 units. I know us Wii U owners and Nintendo fans need to have reassurance and hope but its pretty sad seeing articles like this saying the Wii U is holding its own or staying steady when its only a selling 8,000 a week and we have to get excited when it increases sales by only 1 or 2,000. I’ll be excited when sales start to reach at least 30,000 a week.

    • http://about.me/overlordror Ashley King

      It’s an increase in week over week sales, which is how I always word these articles, comparing them to the previous week.

      • Zuxs13

        Its slow news week they have to nit pick.

      • bistricky

        The bump in sales could be because of the new bundle in japan (sports) and discontinuing the black model in japan ?????

      • ZeldaFan83

        I understand that Ashley, I’m not disrespecting your article or news that you post, you do a great job and I understand your just posting the week to week sales figures as they stand. I see this sort of thing all over the internet and it just frustrates me when fans/Wii U owners get excited that the Wii U is making a comeback after sales only pick up by 1,000 units or so when the sales are already dismal. Sales should be around 20-30,000 units per week for a new next gen Nintendo console and there are obvious reasons why they aren’t: lack of 3rd party support, lack of quality games, lack of consistent game releases, consumer confusion, mild marketing campaigns, etc. The only thing holding the Wii U afloat are Nintendo’s IP’s and Indie games.

    • BIG Franky

      dude… Wii U will NEVER meet 30k a week in Japan.

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        You’re probably right.

        • Ryan F

          But you could be wrong yet. Vita made it into 30k weekly — why can’t WiiU?

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            There’s a reason why I said “probably.” Nothing is set in stone. ;P

      • Nintenjoe82

        If it can sell 7000-9000 with almost no software, it can definitely sell 30k if Nintendo actually release some new games at a sensible rate for it (no guarantee). Didn’t Wii Party U sell 70k Wii Us in a week?

        • BIG Franky

          okay, yes… good point and let me clarify. Wii U will NEVER consistently sell 30k units in Japan…. it could, of course, have a week or two when sales uptick due to a specific title launch… maybe Zelda or something….. but I think it is far more reasonable to assume that Wii U will chug along at 7k to 10k units a week for the foreseeable future (in Japan)….

      • ZeldaFan83

        Within the Wii’s first 2 years in Japan it was selling between 45-100,000+ units every week and eventually evened out at around 30-40,000 units weekly after 2 years on the market. So it’s not that far of a stretch to say that the Wii U can accomplish 30,000 units weekly in Japan.

    • Ducked

      She said small increase, 2,000 is a small increase…

  • Zuxs13

    So where is Magus this week and his “wiiu sales are not steady they are declining! -1182 in 4 weeks ” comments. How about 2328 in one week.

  • David Trail

    Gonna be a good year for Wii U. Mario Kart 8 is going to keep it rising!

  • Shota

    i have jstars victory vs on vita! great game!!

  • David Trail

    All the GBA/ DS games and Mario Kart 8 coming out soon. If you were on the fence. Now is a great time to purchase a Wii U…

    DKC TF and lots of good games from last year and launch to!

    • oontz

      Ha ha ha…. If you haven’t purchased a wiiu yet, you probably won’t.

    • David Troll

      David Trail: If you were on the fence. Now is a great time to buy a Wii U….before its discontinued!

  • Nintenjoe82

    I think it’s a significant improvement in the general state of the Wii U. It is obviously not good that it is selling in low quantities but last year, between releases, the Wii U was happy to slip below 3,000 sales in a week. Now it seems to be consistently around 7,000 or more despite releases being just as infrequent. I reckon MK8 will prop it up slightly more and it might even be selling like a popular console by the time anything else comes out!

    There is a slight worry that Nintendo will drop the ball and lose any momentum that the upcoming games will give them.

  • Nintenjoe82

    3DS seems to be losing momentum and the last ND was the first time I’ve thought that the 3DS lineup was becoming weak. Would not be good for Wii U if Nintendo start trying to re-ignite the 3DS again.

    • Smashninja22

      3ds + 3ds XL sales are over 50,000 still more than vita

  • Frankie

    The 3DS sold more than the Vita, it is not losing a stronghold. The Vita has two new games and it still under sold the 3DS by a couple thousand. Seven new games for Sony consoles and it suddenly Nintendo lost Japan. Nintendo is fine in Japan and will continue to do well there, there is no need to be making articles like this.

    • David Trail

      45 mil > 15 million

      • oontz

        And can you show us the wiiu vs ps4 numbers please?

    • http://about.me/overlordror Ashley King

      I never stated Nintendo “lost” Japan. I said this week Sony dominated the charts. You should always takes these week to week sales observations as just that. Week to week.

      • David Trail

        Not in lifetime sales. Vita will never overtake the 3DS.

        • http://about.me/overlordror Ashley King

          Lifetime sales is not what’s being discussed here. That’s the point I’m trying to make. This week, Sony’s software outsold everything but a single 3DS title.

          • David Trail

            Ha there is no point. 3DS is dominating Vita!

          • David Troll

            David Trail: I have no point. I just say things out of random!

        We all know J-Stars Victory Vs. would sell because how much its like Super Smash Bros. and that I’m in it……..MUAHAHAHA……

  • David Trail

    SM3DW 93%
    Zelda Wind Waker HD 90%
    Pikmin 3 88%
    NSMBU 84%
    DKC TF 83% vs

    Daniel Gonzalez PS4 has the better games. Why do you think it sells more ; )

    • Spingebill (Squad 1 Captain)

      I agree…….

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      I agree. The PS4 does sell more. Thank you for clarifying that. ;P

      • David Trail

        Ha ha it sells more because of the hype. The games are sh%t!

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          I wonder how Wii sold? Must of been lots of ads to keep that hype up. The games are awesome on PS4? Good to know. ;P

          • David Trail

            It was great exclusives like Mario Galaxy 1 and 2!

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Yep. Though, I suppose those aren’t helping the Wii U out.

          • David Trail

            Mario Kart 8 will. You will see!

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Uh huh. I’m sure. ;p

          • David Trail

            I’ll be here laughing when it does!

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I had those same sentiments of your posts on a daily basis. Do carry on. ;P

          • Carl Fin

            Did a PS4 kill your mother or something or are you just a really sad person?

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Right now, it appears to be the latter.

          • Carl Fin

            It really is ironic that someone would stalk you to prove that you have something wrong with you! I mean seriously, I’m not a regular forum poster and this even annoyed me enough to comment.

          • oontz

            He actualy has stated that he loves his ps3 and a psvita but wants to see sony fail with the ps4. That is the level of logic he is bringing to the table.

          • David Troll

            I love my PS3 and Vita! That’s why I hate my PS4 because it’s too powerful for me to understand! Logic hurts my brain!

            PS3 > PS4 lmao! God….I need to get off these meds.

          • oontz

            Looking forward to that! Seriously can’t wait for those media crate results.

          • Zuxs13

            to be fair, thats what most people said about Wonder 101, pikmin 3, SM3DW, WW HD and Donkey Kong, and only WW and Mario helped along with the Holiday buying season.

            Though Mario Kart will help, dont get your hopes up for some kind of magical turn around or dominance.

          • oontz

            Just like pikmin3, Zelda wwhd, w101, sm3dw, dkc tf, etc, etc. Talk about being a broken record… Every big game for wiiu hasn’t done what fanboys ( like yourself) continue to hope they would do. Face the facts, the wiiu is hurting right now.

          • David Troll

            The PS4 is hurting far worse! It’s selling great and will continue on! Face it, the PS4 is crap! That’s why Wii U is so awesome, cause it fails to sell! Lmao!

          • oontz
          • oontz

            Ummm Super Mario Galaxy 1 released a full year after the actual wii. So what was the wii selling on for that year… hmmmm maybe… Hype?

        • David Troll

          Your common sense is sh%t lmao! PS4 > Wii U lmao!

        • oontz

          Thanks for sharing YOUR opinion. We can sleep easy now knowing YOU think the games millions of people are loving are shit.

    • Ducked

      Do you have a man crush on Daniel Gonzalez?

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        I believe so. Which is unfortunate for him. He’ll have to battle it out with my girlfriend for exclusive rights.

        • Ducked

          Looks like he has no idea what he’s up against

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            She packs quite the punch. Since then, I’ve never told her to get back in the kitchen. She’s awesome.

          • Ducked

            So I guess your the one in the kitchen now

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Until I stop teasing her with “go make me a sandwich.” She likes to get even. We have such a great relationship. ;P

          • Ducked

            The “go make a sandwich” works very well lol

      • David Troll

        YES I DO! Don’t judge me on that!

        Wii U > PS4 because I said so and I’m always right!

    • David Troll

      David Trail: Wii U > PS4 Lmao! PS4 sucks! Microsoft sucks! Third party sucks! I suck! My common sense sucks! My maturity sucks! I’m drunk and drink too much chamomile tea! LMAO! Excuse me while I drink up a Monster so I can keep telling you how awesome Wii U is and everything else on earth sucks! ;)

    • oontz

      So what’s your reasoning for the wiiu selling so poorly? I mean you claim the games are superior to other platforms, so why can’t the wiiu move units? Shouldn’t the console that has the better software (in your opinion) sell the most consoles?

    • InterTreble

      Daniel Gonzales is simply a stupid hater. Do not waste your time feeding a completely idiot troll, buddy! ;)

      • David Troll

        I agree lmao! He’s too informative and makes too much sense. For us butthurt fanboys, we have to lash out as it’s our dying duty to worship Nintendo like idiots! Lmao! Lets all be Justin Bieber clones and blindly make butthurt comments! Lmao! Let’s skip together into the sunset and continue on our mission to kiss Nintendo’s ass. LMAO!

        Common sense >butthurt fanboys lmao!

        • InterTreble

          The level of this site is more and more embarassing, day by day… Twins of Gonsssssalesssss and oontz-patoonz… Haters, trolls, blind people, people who has nothing to do in their empthy and poor life, frustrated people as their stupid and always-the-same comments tell… Or better, idiot attempt to make flame. Very low level, indeed.

  • David Trail

    Speedy Gonzalez tell me what PS4 games you treasure so much? I would love a good giggle right now!

    • oontz

      If you want a laugh, reread your posts.

  • Dark-Link73

    ALL consoles/handheld sales went up. Looks like people got their tax refunds in Japan too! ;-)

  • David Trail

    Gonzalez share me the delights of your PS4 collection? My virtual console and indie games are probably superior!

    • NintendoFan

      What’s wrong with you?

      • thedeciderU

        ^^^ this.

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        I think a better question is, what’s not wrong with him? ;P

      • David Troll

        I don’t know I just say things that come to mind! Not that I have much left there so I hope you can forgive my rage comments! I’m much sober now!

      • oontz

        The funny thing is he claims that he enjoys his ps3 and loves his psvita but if someone loves the ps4 or the ps4 is successful he can’t deal with it. The guy has some serious issues.

    • oontz

      Just because you have buyers remorse doesn’t mean you should try and make others feel bad. Sorry you are upset you can’t afford a ps4, glad you still enjoy your ps3, psvita and wiiu. Just enjoys games for the sake of enjoying games. Enough with your grade school bullshit.

  • Ducked

    PS Vita out selling PS4? Proves handhelds are superior in Japan.

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      Of course. Japanese are on the go folks.

      • Ducked

        I can understand that when they live in rooms the size of shoe closets lol

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          Man. That must suck for those couples when they want a little something something.

          • Ducked

            Yeah, all that banging against the wall has to be painful. And the neighbors in the next room have to sleep hearing it that close. They can only go so far with that amount of room haha

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Lol! It could possibly land you into the emergency room.

          • Ducked

            Yeah it sure could! On the bright side, they’d have more room there

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Hahaha. True.

        • oontz

          In the city centers yes, like most of east Asia. However outside of the cities they have nice sized houses.

  • David Trail

    Gonzalez is scared to tell me his ps4 games… Let me guess… Knack, Fifa, COD Ghosts and Broken Battlefield lmao!

    • Carl Fin

      You just wrote that message and HE is a loser?

      • David Troll

        Common sense went out the window for me long ago! Don’t make fun of me!

        • oontz

          Love it!!

    • oontz

      Your a loser, look at what you write. If that’s the level of maturity you’re bringing to the table, the please keep it to yourself. On top of that, I’ve been playing battlefield for the past 3 weeks and have experienced no game breaking bugs. They have sorted that out.

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      I kinda just did hours ago. Also, why would anyone tell you what games they have just so you can continue on your fanboy rant? Lol. Btw, you weren’t even close to what games I have. Nice generalizing. Don’t stop though, making a fool of yourself has become a good show for us normals. ;P

      • Rinslowe

        “us normals”???
        Hmmm….. Let me guess… There are more pitchforks than people where you came from..,

    • David Troll

      David Trail’s mind: Nintendo is awesome and anything else sucks. Even I suck because Nintendo is that awesome! I can’t help to sound like a broken record lmao! Don’t take it to heart I am just too full of myself to see the world around me lmao! Now if you all don’t mind I have to lmao! for the rest of the night! LMAO LMAO LMAO!!!

      • oontz

        Ha ha priceless. I see David trail continues to make friends here.

  • http://nintendopapercraftvideos.wordpress.com/ Sam

    I can’t wait to see how much MK8 spikes the Wii U’s sales.

    • Shootdatrupee!…

      With great expectations comes great disappointment

  • MerryBlind .

    I really hope Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros. U will make a big splash and give big momentum to the Wii U. Not just because I want to see it go better as I think it’s a great console, but also because it would simply be absolutely glorious to see that happen.

  • Christopher Beamish

    I brought a Wii U 2 weeks after it got released on the assumption that Nintendo were actually going to have all round support. I come on a daily basis to this website and am continually disappointed. You may wonder why because all i see is that i have been misled. Wii U is a joke, i now believe it was just an afterthought. Luckily i am fortunate and had a pc/xbox360 to tide me over till the ps4 came out. Those out there can say whatever you like about the poor games on the ps4, the truth is quite the opposite. My Wii U sits collecting dust even though i have a brought a dozen games or so. I have Wii U credit i still haven’t used from when i purchased the Wii U. Again why because all Nintendo wants me to do is buy 20 year old crap that should be a couple of dollars max for more than there worth. Now Nintendo should take a leaf out of Sony’s book and give us one of those crappy games a month for free. Unfortunately I am over Nintendo’s products they are really no competition to the other 2 competitors. What do i see with the Wii U now.

    1. Half arsed third party support look at just about any 3rd party game. They are simply not even complete if it gets released at all on the system.
    2. Half arsed first party support. One game every 3 months is not good enough when there no or little 3rd party support. Then when they do come out they don’t use the specific features of the WII U.
    3. Half arsed online connectivity, all you need to do is look at xbox live or psn and you know what i am talking about.

    People wonder why PS Vita is doing alot better it’s because Sony never gave up on it and ensured it would be relevant in regards with the ps4. In fact i brought one even though i had one earlier and sold it to go with my ps4. Guess what i have not been disappointed with my purchase. Anyway i suppose my rant is useless and i am sure i will get some flak over this but I truly believe in what i saying. I finish this by saying to all just look at the signs. Also all those that feel the same as me instead of dissing the competitors look at them instead as unfortunately Wii U is a spent force.

    • Marcus Larsson

      Exactly my story regarding the wii u.
      I dont think there is a single Zelda-game that can justify what i didnt get with the wii u.

      • oontz

        I think a lot of early adopter are feeling the same thing. I am one of them. I think many wiiu owners will be more apprehensive in jumping on Nintendo’s next home console.

        • 00EpicGamer00

          I know I will.

  • Carlos Webster

    Good for you, Sony! (smiles).

  • Josie the Sketcher

    Vita defeating the PS4? That’s something you don’t see everyday. LOL!

  • Mark Priest

    Wii u is doin just fine. People that hate nintendo r pathetic. They r xbone folks amd ps4 people. All about graphics graphics graphics. That does not make a game. Wii u has been around for 16the months and will be here another 16 months and another. Ps4 and xbone ARE THE SAME DAMN SYSTEM. ALMOST SAME CRAP SHOOTEM UP GAMES. SAME GRAPHICS ETC. neither system would be around if it wasnt for ENDO. Everyone said n64 would fail and gamecube and wii and they were ALL WRONG.just wait graphics nerds. Nintendo will never die. But xbone is doin bad in sales. Hell just google xbox poor sales.

    • oontz

      “People that hate nintendo r pathetic.”

      So does that mean you’re also pathetic because you hate the xb1 and ps4? Or are you just being a hypocrite? Double standards maybe?

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        Who knew Treble had a twin brother.

        • oontz

          ha ha

        • InterTreble

          This comment is a total fail. This just demonstrate you are a complete idiot, and so is “your twin” oontz. At the end you make me laugh… for how much stupid you are! ;)

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Considering you responded with complete hate, looks like it succeeded. I demonstrate exactly what you are and you show it even now. If oontz is my twin, that’s a good thing because that means we both have common sense that you lack. Indeed, you do make us laugh with your presence. Do continue on your anger and frustration. It’s fun to read. The more you respond, the more you make a fool of yourself. Bye bye now Trebby. <3

          • oontz

            Are you calling me a complete idiot?

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I think what Treble was trying to say is “I’m sorry for calling people idiots. I have major fanboy issues and can’t control my butthurt nature. So please forgive me for pulling the David Trail comic routine. Someday, I’ll grow common sense and mature up.”

            That about sums it up.

  • Josie the Sketcher

    It looks like the hype for the PS4 is finally dying down which is great because more chances of getting one. For the first time ever, i saw many in stock in a store. Not going to get it yet though but i am craving to get it. I have set myself wait-at-least-six-months rule for newly released consoles.

  • InterTreble

    3DS took just two weeks to gain the #1 (the sales must be summed… otherwise should we distinguish among red 3DS, blu, white, silver…?!?!). This is the clear demostration PS4 in Japan is not that success haters and trolls predicted against Nintendo. They were wrong, 3DS is always the king in Japan. This hurts them, but it’s not our own problem.

    • oontz

      “should we distinguish among red 3DS, blu, white, silver…?!?!”

      No those are different colors, 3ds and 3ds LL are different handhelds, with different price points.

      “This is the clear demostration PS4 in Japan is not that success haters and trolls predicted against Nintendo.”

      What are you talking about? PS4 is clearly outselling wiiu 3 to 1.

  • ETeach

    I still don’t understand why they differentiate between the 3ds and 3ds LL.
