The Wii U Lags Behind The PS Vita in Software Sales in the UK

Nintendo’s Wii U isn’t exactly setting the world on fire. According to JVM’s sales figures for January 2013, the Wii U sold 34,000 units of software, beating out only the PS2 and PSP in the UK.

The software sales account for the bundled version of Nintendo Land that comes with the Wii U Deluxe Consequently, the Wii U didn’t move too much in the way of hardware either.

The numbers, which place the Wii U in 8th place for software sales, see even the PS Vita selling more games than the Wii U at 46,000. This doesn’t bode well for the market’s first next-generation console, as the Xbox 360 continued to push out a staggering 810,000 units of software to consumers.

What do you think this means for the Wii U? Perhaps the world still isn’t ready to embrace new consoles when the quality of games on the current platforms is still high. Alternatively, maybe people are waiting for the “true” next generation consoles from Microsoft and Sony. What say you, faithful readers?
