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.

...for my young kids. There are plenty of Wii titles to choose from, but really nothing exciting beyond that. I don't really regret the purchase, but I am pretty amazed at the slow rate of game adoption on the platform.

Wii U games cost $$$ (in my world at least). $40 dollars for a kids game is one thing, but $60 per game is ridiculous (especially when $2 tablet games can be just as entertaining for them).
