Wii U Doesn't Outsell Its Predecessor
Filed under: WII U, NINTENDO, HADWARE, WII, CONSOLES

Well, let's face it, everything sells worse than the original Wii console. To this day, it remains one of the most sought-after products in the video games industry and on par with products such as the iPhone or iPad (sales wise).

Sales research data company NPD reports that Nintendo sold 460,000 units of its latest consoles, the Wii U in December. During December 2006, Nintendo shifted 475,000 Wii consoles, depleting its entire stock, after which the company strove to refurbish the stock for a whole year.

"While the Wii launch established new benchmarks in the United States, Wii U has surpassed its predecessor in perhaps the most important category: revenue generation," said Nintendo of America sales executive Scott Moffitt.

So, they sold "only" 460,000 units, eh? Awww, poor, poor Nintendo.

Thanks, GI.

They sold more then 2.2 million WiiU's world wide as of early January.
North America 1.09 Million Units
Japan 560K Units
Europe 410K Units
Rest of World 150K Units
The problem is that Nintendo needs to sell 5.5 million by March or they they will take a massive hit to the revenue/profit ratio from the WiiU. Instead of losing only some per unit they will lose even more with every 100k they dont sell.

For many, having one wii to sit at home to collect dust is enough...
