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.

It's amazing to hear that the WiiU, and somewhat heartening to hear that only the WiiU, is doing that poorly. Unfortunately the other comparisons are meaningless; during launch window scarcity, these numbers are literally just how many were distributed to the UK. PS4's lead speaks highly of its production and distribution efficiency, but says nothing of its longevity or overall demand.
