UK software sales for Wii U last month were rather abysmal. Just 34,000 games were sold in the territory throughout January. The figure is even more bewildering when you consider that all copies of Nintendo Land – yes, the ones bundled in with the Premium Pack – count towards the total. Wii U maintained a market share of just 1.6% in the UK.

A full listing of UK software totals and market shares for other platforms can be found in the graphic above.

    I don’t know anyone who is excited about the Wii U. Not even my friends who have a Nintendo Wii. I think I remember reading that the Wii U is only slightly more powerful than current gen systems. I’ll be waiting for Xbox 720 or PS4.

      PS4 will suffer the same fate as the WiiU. Sony’s notorius for overhype that doesn’t deliver.

    Deary me… Now I’m quite bewildered how Nintendo can keep up with it’s competitors during following months…
