Since its debut last month, Nintendo’s new Wii U console has surpassed the launch sales of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. In a span of four weeks of being on the market, Nintendo has sold over 1.8 million Wii U consoles. In that same amount of time, Microsoft sold 940,000 Xbox 360 consoles, and Sony shipped 540,000 PlayStation 3 consoles.
Even though everyone knows I’m a Sony advocate it’s nice to see that Nintendo once long forgoten has gotten back into the console race. It’s amaazing to see they’ve surpassed PS3 sales by more than three times the amount. These numbers are quite impressive and makes me wonder if I should pick one up for myself just to see what all the fuss is about. Even if I don’t totally dig it I can always pass it to my girl or a family member to enjoy. All and all this news is at least good for competition in the industry because with good competition comes great products for all involved. Can’t wait to see what Sony and Microsoft has in store for us going into the next generation of gaming.
