Not only did the PlayStation 4 outsell the Xbox One in its first weekend by about 100000 units in the UK, it completely obliterated the Wii U.

The numbers are even bleaker for Nintendo - its year of Wii U sales have now been trounced in a weekend by both next-gen machines. More people bought a PS4 and a copy of Knack over the weekend than bought a Wii U at any point over the past year and new release Super Mario 3D World.

If not even a Mario game can save a Nintendo console, you know something's up. People, Nintendo is in deep, deep trouble.

I know, but I was talking in general. Surf the media sites and it's not that hard to find an article stating this obliterated that or that destroyed this.

The hyperbole has become media fashion, but it's not something I enjoy and I don't think it adds anything to the story apart from making it seem more sensational than it actually is.

The PS4 can outsell the Wii-U by a wide margin or even a huge one, but nothing got obliterated.
