    1. This is Japan. The Xbox One has never sold well over there. This is nothing new. And the Wii U sold less than last week, so that’s not a cause for celebration.

    2. The Vita is still incredibly popular in Japan and has consistently sold well for quite some time. But kudos on being yet another person to highlight the terrible Xbox One sales in Japan. Here, let me give you a new bat to beat that dead horse with.

    1. Animal Crossing is very big in Japan so i think not that the amiibo bundle made it sell more

  1. Ok Wiiu in top 5 consoles making it at no.3 is pretty good the machine which was very poor seller, finally Wiiu has beaten psvita and of course xboxone.

    1. lol you don’t need to “spin” anything. Wii U’s overall performance since release is beyond disappointing and continues to be mediocre. And if it’s hard in Japan to sell games in general (“regular” video games as opposed to mobile games, you mean?), then that goes the same for Sony too – so since the handicap you’re giving to Nintendo (nice try, though) applies to all games, then, it doesn’t really have the same sort of effect in excusing Nintendo’s poor performance. Take away your (perceived) handicap and Nintendo still lags.
