Games The Wii U isn't doing well. "We're told by someone with access to the NPD's data that sales for January were 'well under' 100,000 units. By our estimates, sales were somewhere between 45,000 and 59,000 units for the month, which is lower than any of the three previous-generation home consoles sold in their worst months, with the possible exception of a recent performance by the original Wii." All that is old will be new again.

You could be forgiven for not knowing the console is available here in the UK.

Not seen a single TV advert for it and even in stores, the areas dedicated to it is the same size as xbox or ps.

You would have expected Nintendo to pump some money into advertising while it is a "generation ahead" of the competition. Make no mistake, MS and Sony will POUR money into advertising their new consoles

Sony isn't exactly in a great position to pour money into much of anything at the moment.

PlayStation division's operating income in Q2 was ¥2.3 billion ($29 million), a year-on-year decline of 23.3 percent

They can afford to spend a fair amount to revitalize the platform.
