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.

Steam and Wii

If I had to buy one console, it probably would be Wii. Mostly because they are not PS4 or Xbox. But I'm not a console gamer, so I suppose I don't count.

I wish Nintendo would develop their titles for Steam. But that's probably hoping for too much.

I suppose as long as Nintendo is making money, they could care less how many consoles they sell. But at some point it will matter. Lets hope its not too little too late by that point.
