Online gaming publication Eurogamer has posted hardware sales figures for 2013 in the United Kingdom. The publication says the PlayStation Vita outsold Nintendo’s Wii U in 2012, but members of NeoGAF believe that the site has removed 2012’s sales figures from life-to-date and are talking about the end result of 2013 sales.
Looking just at 2012’s figures, Wii U was out-performed even by PlayStation Vita, despite Sony’s struggling handheld itself falling 41.5 per cent in sales compared to 2012.
