What is it with VGC posting 2 articles on the same story from different authors? This is the third time I've seen it happen in the last few weeks.

not only different authors but different numbers, VGC is a mess.

one is on GamRconnect and the other is a vgchartz article, it's like a sister site but in reality all of gamRconnects traffic seems to come from here if you look at the views per article unless it's a pure clickbait rubbish article then outsiders come in to laugh at it.

Now it has the ability to surpass Wii U total sales soon. (on 05 September 2014)

the WiiU has been selling better than the Xbox since E3. and its coming strong to surpass the ps4.

I don't think the Wii U can think of getting close the the PS4 unless Smash and the Amiibos sell like hotcakes.

It is the fault of russian depatment of Microsoft. This guys were too slow to deliver consoles to local shops all over the country, so they had to move the launch date from 5th to 26th.
