Analytics Firm Expects Wii U To Fall Short Of 20 Million Global Units By 2019

My Nintendo News

Market intelligence firm Strategy Analytics has put together its latest report detailing the sales of current generation consoles. Strategy Analytics expects Sony’s PlayStation 4 to be in the lead selling around 80 million units by 2019. The firm also expects Microsoft’s Xbox One to sell around 57 million units. The news isn’t so good for the Wii U which Strategy Analytic expects to reach around 20 million global units by 2019.

Nintendo’s Wii U will trail a long way behind its rivals – it is looking more and more like Nintendo struck lucky with the original Wii, after failing with the GameCube and now the Wii U. Nintendo must decide if it is going to let the console business remain a two-way battle when the next generation comes along – I suspect it won’t but it will be sorely hurt by its latest experience.
