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.

has a "nostalgia" market in US and Japan (where also mobile gaming is a huge thing), that's why they can get away with re-releasing the same old mario/zelda/pokemon crap each generation. Other than that and maybe some casual entertainment for kids/grandparents they don't have a lot going for them.
