The problem with releasing a console that barely pushes the top level of current-gen console power, with only a smattering of games, none of which can really boast to being "killer app", is that your competitors will be firing on all cylinders. Thus it's perhaps no surprise that a week on from the Wii U's release, Nintendo Land and NSMBU have fallen 15 and 22 places respectively. ZombiU is nowhere to be found in the top 40.
Instead, it would seem that gamers are perfectly happy spending £40 on the likes of Blops II, which sits pretty at #1 once again; the excellent Far Cry 3; and top ten mainstay - FIFA 13.
Hell, even Wonderbook held firm in 21st place.
