Yikes... *Confused

Edit: Wait wait wait... What happened to all the pre-orders, selling out, and black friday sales? I was under the impression that this sold well with all those things?

Only 400,000 units. Even less than the 3,000,000 Patcher predicted.

If only they had used the 6670, this wouldn't have happened.


It was capped by availability -_-


I can still find it in most stores in my area, even after Black Friday. Not an availability problem here~


Because your area = everywhere.

In my area you can't find s single one and the nearest place to get one is in the next state over.

Those are solid Wii and DS numbers, especially for being "legacy" systems at this point.

Wii U sales are as expected. The console isn't the groundbreaking hit that the Wii was, but I don't think anything will sell as fast as that console did.

3DS sales, in my opinion, are pretty mediocre, though. The system needed a killer-app these holidays, as well as some good Black Friday bundles, and neither happened. The December bundle for the XL and the price drop to $139.99 on the original model should help a lot.

That's cool, but as the eBay sales prove there isn't much demand for this console.

400,000 is good, but it isn't a safe number that hasn't been had before by struggling consoles (Vita, and the 3DS before price cut). Luckily, we're still in the holiday effect. Nintendo needs to keep momentum up for the Wii U and strengthen it's advertisement.
