UK software sales for Wii U last month were rather abysmal. Just 34,000 games were sold in the territory throughout January. The figure is even more bewildering when you consider that all copies of Nintendo Land - yes, the ones bundled in with the Premium Pack - count towards the total. Wii U maintained a market share of just 1.6% in the UK.

A full listing of UK software totals can be found in the graphic above.

All of a sudden, the Vita doesn't look so bad. Sorry I had too.

Digital downloads are not taken into account, no? *optimism*

That's because there's no new games to buy. *looks at Ubisoft*
