Wii U Expected To Sell 25 Million Units In Its Lifetime, According To Market Research Firm

It is no secret that at the moment, Nintendo's Wii U console is not doing as well as it should. In fact even against the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360, the Wii U appeared to be struggling, with many claiming the lack of blockbuster titles as one of the main reasons. However there are developers who are also staying away from the console because of that, which does seem like a pretty vicious cycle. In any case while it remains to be seen how many units the Wii U will sell in its lifetime, a market search conducted by DFC Intelligence has suggested that the Wii U will sell about 25 million units in its lifetime.

Fallout 4 Website Creator Hoped His Stunt Would Force Bethesda To Reveal Their Hand

As gamers might have heard by now, the mysterious Fallout 4 website turned out to be a hoax and an elaborate prank. On the surface it might seem that the creator of the website might simply be trolling the gaming community simply because he could, but as it turns out his intentions while a little mean, were somewhat good as the goal of the fake website was to force Bethesda's hand into revealing something about the franchise, such as to either deny that it was being worked on flat out, or to reveal that they have nothing to announce yet, which is good news as it could mean that the game is in development.
