More or less the same as in Germany, WiiU slightly ahead of X1 and PS4 in a league of its own.
3DS going strong in France, nice numbers.

Even if there was a head start, with all the talk of "no 3rd party support!" and "software droughts! it has no games!" you would think that X1 would've outsold the Wii U already.

Main problem for Xbone is ps4 is eating it's lunch then some.

I'm surprised at how high the Xbox number is, what is the benefit of going with XBO over PS4?

For me it was mostly the price (280 euros when the PS4 was still at 350-400 €), multiplats, Halo 5 and the whole line-up for 2016 basically.

Wii U being more popular than Xbox One in both Germany and France at this point is just plain embarrassing. Sales of Xbox One have even flatlined already. Throw the towel.

I see lots of Germans and French on Mario Maker (and not too many Brits). Makes more sense given these numbers.

Maybe you like the controller better? The exclusives? The online capabilities? The price? There are plenty of reasons going with Xbox One over PS4, depending on what person you are.

By that logic Wii, Gamecube, PS2 and Xbox (1) are all more popular. Wii U had a year headstart, if you look at the numbers you'll see that Xbox One outsold Wii U constantly. But not by much. :D

That place there.
Xboned.

The Wii U actually selling more is something else.
It doesn't sell more, check the 2014 and 2015 figure. It has sold more over a longer lifetime.

Still, WiiU is not the unmitigated disaster it is in other EU territories. It's just in the same ballpark as Xbox, whose performance in France was historically mediocre. It's a good example of brand loyalty mitigating things.
