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'd really like the Steambox to become a console which sells (if the console is marketed).
This console is a big opportunity to see Linux gaming improve, maybe the only one.

Given the huge sales in the established consoles I suspect the Steambox will end up being too little, too late.
