Funimation apps for Wii U

    Given that that the Funimation app for the Xbox one has yet to be released, there is a small problem with your statement.

    One factor would be the relative popularity of the consoles. Despite not being out as long, PS4 sales are currently over 21.6 million, the Xbox One at over 12 million, while the Wii U is at just over 9.5 million. All other factors being equal, where would you put your resources first if you were a business?

    There is also the question of how easy it is to get an app on the Wii U. Look at the number of video apps available on the Wii U. Now look at the number on either the PS4 or Xbox One. Even at "only" 9.5 million, there should be more video apps on the Wii U if there wasn't something making it more difficult.
