USA Weekly Chart Week Ending 1/11/2014

Ok, most Nintendo fans are probably super tired of all the doom and gloom news about Nintendo lately, but this can be seen as a positive thing. Maybe Nintendo will finally takes this kick-in-the-butt and do something that makes sense for the Wii U. Maybe a piece of software that will attract a lot of attention until the big titles come out. Maybe even a F2P title that is actually “free-to-play” (Tank Tank Tank does NOT count). To confirm Nintendo’s terrible sales, take a look at the chart below from VGChartz.com:

Gen 8 Lifetime Hardware Sales (US): 
XOne 69,025 (-30%) 2,011,713
PS4 67,868 (-22%) 2,140,510

Remember, VGChartz.com doesn’t have the best history of being exactly on point with their sales so don’t take the statistics on this chart as hard facts, but one way or another, Nintendo needs to step their game up.
