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.


You just called 3DS sales mediocre... something that's still outpacing the best selling console of all time by 1 million units... okay?

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.


Have you seen all the Wii U ads on this site?


Have you seen how many people don't know what the hell a Wii U is?

If they'd advertise anymore my head would explode...heard that techno/dub step theme too much that it's bleeding out of my ears lol.

i doubt it's capped by availability, reggie said that they;ve prepared more stocks compared to when wii launched, so if wii sold 600k, that means there must be over 600k of stocks for the wii U. then again, reggie likes to say alot of things.

He was comparing the Wii's first week with the Wii U's.

Ah, I see. It sold just shy of the Wii's actual numbers.

I believe Reggie said it was dramatically capped by availability

Y'know, I think it would have sold better if they didn't have more basic bundles than deluxe. There are plenty of people, myself included, who won't buy the console until there is a deluxe model available. I just can't justify purchasing the standard bundle.
