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.

Does Nintendo care?

Does Nintendo care? or need to care? As long as the Wii U is profitable. Nintendo don't need to worry about selling a few consoles. If they only sold 5 consoles but they made more money back on them then they spent developing/marketing/selling them, then that's a good deal for Nintendo. This is sort of like how people were saying that Apple is getting destroyed by Microsoft because they aren't 90%+ of the market.
