PS4 Sales Surpass Wii U

Post by Zero Revolution on Tue Mar 04, 2014 3:31 pm

Playstation 4 sales numbers have now passed 6 million according to Sony, meaning it has sold more than the 5.8 million Wii U units sold (at least to our knowledge, I'm sure Wii U has sold more than 6 million at this point to be honest). Source

I can believe it, although considering the PS4 literally has no exclusives at all that have been released (besides Knack which is terrible), I don't know why people would be purchasing it. Especially when Wii U does have some games available, granted not many, but it's still way more than PS4 does at the moment.

It's because Sony did what Nintendo pulled when the WIi was out; they released a lower amount & kept the releases low that way it would look like they sold more compared to the other console developers. It's all about supply and demand; if where you buy a PS4 has no supply of the console & their console is a high demand of course it's going to seem like the PS4 is selling more. Er at least that's what I've been reading around the internet, some Nintendo & Xbox fans have been claiming this so I kinda wonder if it's true. xp

All those geeks can go crazy over their PS4s and those FPS.

The Wii U is a much better console, as long as Nintendo makes enough profit to develop more consoles I'm fine.

@Queen
That is true, although that would have nothing to do with actual sales numbers, as the PS4 has sold 6 million units, that isn't how many units have been shipped. But yeah that's completely true and it makes everyone think it's selling so well, yes it's "selling out" but only because they're not providing nearly enough units of the console.

@Luma
Yeah. Even then there are no exclusive FPS's on the PS4 yet. (to my knowledge...) All they have is Knack. And who really wants to play Knack. Razz

There were PS4 adds on like every channel and lots of gamers only care about power and the best graphics. The PS4 was also getting most of the third party games so it should be no surprise that Sony sold 6 million units.
