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.

I don't mean to advocate piracy but dolphin is quite a fine gamecube and wii emulator. I'm not sure its worth buying the actual hardware anymore, just get the disks and grab rips to play.

Plus it can do native (or higher than wii) res and games look far better on it than on the wii. You do need a beefy cpu (it is emulating a PPC cpu). It also supports WiiMotes so it is no different than playing on a Wii.

Some games do chug, but most run acceptably.
