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.

But what does "obliteration" add to the story?

Are you seriously arguing that I should not use figures of speech?

If so, sorry. I will not comply with your wish. OSNews is a fun hobby, not a clinical, cold, distant, boring surgical assessment. I've seen you use a million far more emotionally laden terms to describe Samsung and Google.
