Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime was asked by the Seattle Times whether he thinks the Wii U could ever outsell Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One. With regards to the UK the PlayStation 4 outsold the Wii U in 48 hours and the Xbox One outsold the Wii U in one month. The PlayStation 4 outsold Wii U worldwide in 4 months. Still, Reggie thinks Nintendo has a good chance at outselling its competitors with the Wii U.
Q: Will the Wii U ever outsell the Xbox One or PlayStation 4?
A: The dirty little secret is if you look at life-to-date numbers, between Sony and Nintendo they’d be pretty close in terms of PS4 vs. Wii U, with Xbox coming in third place. I think it’s going to be a three-horse race for the balance of this cycle.
