  • Man….10k…Even the PS4 is down by 1k but still….the only one resisting this tendency is the 3DS it almost stayed in the same place.

  • InterTreble

    If “Wii U is a fail”, as I read all around the web, just to know, what PS4 is?

    • Mr Ninty

      wiiu was never a fail, nor is the ps4.

      • InterTreble

        I do prefer your comment. But the stupid comments all around the world are always the same.

    • Anders

      .. A console that outsold the Wii U worldwide in just 2½ months but struggles to deliver games AAA Japanese games for it’s home market.

      • InterTreble

        So PS4 is a fail in Japan. Ok.

  • smashbrolink

    It’s good to see the wii u keeping above that 10k Mark. Mario Kart helped tons; they’ve definitely started to make up for that disastrous first year, where sales dropped like a rock after the initial burst.

  • Emufred

    It’s important that the wii-u outsells the ps4 in japan because…

    • InterTreble

      Nintendo and Sony are both Japanese. To be outsold in your homeland was not considered as an option by anybody. PS4 had to outsell also 3DS, considering a lot of comments six months ago. This is the piece of news.

    Ooof, looks like Wii U is falling back to dangerously low levels. Let’s hope the west isn’t being as cruel

    • sonicfan1373

      I believe they will maintain momentum in the West for a bit longer but ultimately that will fall as well. The issue is that MK8 is only one title and Nintendo needs to have back-to-back releases in order to stir up interest and hype for the system. We got MK8 at the end of May but have nothing else until mid-september; droughts like this kill the chances of any major title trying to regain momentum for the system.

      As I recall, the price drop in 2011 for 3DS dramatically increased sales, the release of Star Fox 64 3D along with a slew of third-party sales drove sales even higher, and the back to back release of SM3DL and MK7 caused sales to explode. This was all done in 4 month period without a drought, and the Wii U needs a time table like this, or even better considering that it is being sold at a higher price than the 3DS was in 2011, to regain momentum.

        I think that “time table” is coming soon enough (for the US, at least).

        We’ve got the retail version of Wii Sports Club in July, Hyrule Warriors in September, Bayonetta 2 in October, Captain Toad at around November, and Smash Bros. in (crossing my fingers) December.

        There’s currently nothing for August retail-wise (unless they announce NES Remix 1+2 or something).
