Did Nintendo imagine that gamers would worry about the 3DS future just before the Xbox 720 and PS4 is set to arrive? No matter what it thought, we know that Nintendo Wii U started only steadily akin to the tortoise of the hare and tortoise story.
However, slow and steady indeed seems to be signs of a winner. Despite a dip in price just months after its arrival the Nintendo Wii U has finally got its groove.
Amid disappointment and raised eyebrows, it has finally strengthened its hold on the market. In fact, our sources report that the 3DS game sale figures could even soar above the 20 million mark in the US. This figure covers only the physical sales—the digital tale is worth an epic narration altogether. Against the 3DS sales last year, the prevailing figures spell a 55 per cent hike—both for the digi and physical niches!
Nintendo has already set the record straight with slew of new releases. Zelda, Mario & Luigi RPG, Animal Crossing and Yoshi’s Island are designed to astound us. With their amazing interfaces and interesting concept, 3DS seems to be basking in a boom that it never anticipated. The Wii U gave us more options yes, but Nintendo still remains focused on the gaming niche. Perhaps, it will not matter whether the PS4 is plugged into your TV set.
