The Xbox One and Sony PS4 happen to be recently released consoles that have done pretty well over in the US, and from what we have gathered so far, the UK too, has proven to be a happy hunting ground for the Sony PS4. In fact, the PS4 launch sales in the UK have already passed the 250,000 mark, being the fastest selling console in UK history to boot. When you take that into consideration, the Wii U has moved a paltry 150,000 units after a single year in sales. As for the Xbox One, it has sold more than 170,000 units to date. Chart-Track themselves have confirmed that the Xbox One and PS4 have already outsold Wii U, but did not deliver the exact sales figures.
On a side note, I do wonder when will the mainstream media stop referring to the Xbox One and Sony PS4 as next generation consoles? How long after such consoles are launched before they are deemed to be of “this” generation? Just a question that I am throwing out for you to muse over. What do you think of the sales figures of the Wii U, and does this signal the beginning of the end of Nintendo in the long run? After all, the UK market is not to be scoffed at.
