Mario Kart 8 sold upwards of 1.2 Million Copies on its first weekend
Wii U sales rose globally almost 500% with all time sales reaching almost 6.2 Million
Currently the PS4 is standing at about 8 Million Units sold Worldwide and the Xbox One is around 5 Million (according to VGChartz)
As you can see by the graph of the past month in console sales, the Wii U, if trends continue will soon overlap the PS4 in terms of weekly sales.
Now this is all just mere speculation and I’m continuously being told “Well the Wii U was released a year before the PS4/X1”
While all 3 systems had major day 1 numbers, the main reason the Wii U staggered its first year was a real lack of exclusive software and its the same reason the PS4 and X1 sales are staggering with most major exclusives for Sony being put back until next year.
It doesn’t matter when a system was released and in another year all 3 will have some serious exclusives.
In conclusion, don’t count the Wii U (or hell, even the Xbox One) out just yet, the generation is only just begun
