    Surprised to see it, but congratulations to the Wii U for actually going up in sales, for a week. Let’s see if they can continue the trend.

    I think it’s fair to say that won’t happen. :)

    The Wii U will see zero support from 3rd parties in 2014 (why bother when you have mild parity on Xbone/PS4), so ‘spikes’ in sales will most likely appear around big Nintendo releases:

    Mario 3D World (as seen here a little)
    Donkey Kong (although prob not much)
    Smash
    Mario Kart

    It’ll be the sales equivelent of listening to an old man taking a piss. Lots of straining with some small squirts of relief.

    However, while this old man (Nintendo) is struggling to urinate (Wii U), his bran filled diet is helping him drop huge logs (3DS) on a frequently basis.

    So, in summary:

    Big Logs
    Dribbly Urine

    Not a chance of a turn of fortune this side of the year with -just- Mario. I think if they get their aces in their places in 2014 they could claw back some respectable sales. Nowhere near the Wii though, they really could do with buying up some exclusive software.

    Also, without EA I hate to say it’s really effecting the software library.

    This is worth a read, not sure how accurate it is though:

    Some good intel and research all in one place. No big suprises though.

    “Also, without EA I hate to say it’s really effecting the software library.”

    Yep, the big studios are really trying to show Nintendo “Who run barter town”…

    They must be pissed off with years of mediocre sales on Nintendo machines and are trying to muscle them out of market altogether. It’s going to be fun to see how a company tries to survive without taking help from third party sources.

    It matters now more than ever as MS / Sony practically jump to the tune of EA / Acti / Ubi and rely on them in a big way to pad out release schedules.

    Oh, I’m not saying that they are going to beat any of the actual next-gen systems, and I imagine them being slaughtered in Japan when the PS4 launches. BUT I’m curious if they can at least sell “okay” on a consistent basis. There were weeks where the Wii U dropped to 2k sales, which is abominable. I’m just curious if they can stave off returning to those depths again.

    If they can keep selling ‘okay ‘ then there’s nothing really for them to worry about, Nintendo seem to be able to turn a small profit here and there and with games selling 3 million copies elsewhere, I think they are okay at least for the moment. I honestly do think it’ll tick over for its lifespan. I’m cool with that, the Dreamcast only did 10.6 million units but still gave some of the best games of that era.

    Discussing lack of major western third party support in an article about japanese sales charts is silly. Let’s just leave it be.

    The lack of Western software was a digression from the main point which the Wii U was involved, so it has every relevance. Thanks.
