It is considered to be the very first entry among the eighth batch of video game consoles. Is greatest competitors, Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One, were released a year after the launching of Wii U.
More Demands for Wii U Compared to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One
Though Wii U came one year ago and the other two – PlayStation 4 and Xbox One – were the two hottest and latest gadgets for this season, according to retailer play.com, the Wii U, together with Apple’s iPad, could actually outsell both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this Christmas. Why? It is simply because most kids want Nintendo’s Wii U as a Christmas gift. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One came in second and third place when it comes to what toy retailers, retail correspondents and mummy bloggers are talking about on the social networking site Twitter. The two recently released video game home consoles were both behind Apple’s iPad and Nintendo’s Wii U, which are considered to be the most talked about gifts for children this coming Christmas.

As Christmas day approaches, it is not impossible for the Wii U and the iPad to sell more units compared to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, which achieved a ravaging million sales during their first day of release. According to Rakuten, the Wii U sales increased by 75 percent in October 2013. Rakuten also anticipated that the increased number of Wii U sales will continue until Christmas.
Why Is Wii U Anticipated to be More Saleable Than PlayStation 4 and Xbox One This Christmas?
