It must be said, a good infographic can go a long way. While issuing statistics and numbers can make eyes droop and lose attention, if you place some key statistics with some pretty graphics the message can be a lot clearer; Nintendo's keen to make just that point.

An infographic tweeted by Nintendo of America states that the Wii U and 3DS share more highly rated games than all other current generation systems; we're taking that current-gen statistic to mean PS4, Xbox One and PS Vita. Even accounting for the fact that the latest home consoles from Sony and Microsoft have had just a year on the market, there are an impressive number of 3DS and — particularly — Wii U games that have a metacritic score of 85%+ and an average user score of 8.5 or more. User scores on Metacritic are notoriously punishing, so it's a surprising statistic.

You can see the infographic below.

It's certainly worth remembering that there are some terrific games on the Wii U and 3DS, even if Nintendo is naturally going for the best angle and spin possible. It is all about the games, remember.
