5 Gaming Consoles That Took a Hard Fall

Nintendo Wii U

Nobody's surprised that the Wii U made it to the list. Nintendo, thankfully, made up for this 2012 mess with the success of the Switch. This expensive console was built originally to invite more hardcore gamers to the table, in contrast with its predecessor, the family-friendly Wii. Unfortunately, however, that was not to be the case.

Compared to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, the console couldn't deliver good, solid software for users to enjoy, either. The concept was also highly confusing for users, as it was a cross between an accessory for the original Wii and a tablet. Like the Dreamcast, this one was born at a very bad time and was kicked to the curb with only 13 million units sold, compared to the whopping 101 million the Wii cashed in.
