"Wii U Hardware Sales Surpass Wii Sales by More Than $30 Million through First Six Weeks

With more than 460,000 units sold in December, Wii U has now sold nearly 890,000 units in the United States after only 41 days on the market, according to the NPD Group. To date, Wii U hardware sales have generated more than $300 million in the U.S. alone; Wii hardware had generated just more than $270 million at the same point in its lifecycle."

Plus a total of over 2.650 million systems total (3ds, ds, wii, wiiu) for Nintendo sold. Yea Nintendoomed. Idiots.

Ah wrong 1.
Meant the year before. So still a year after launch.

New consoles sell less than old 1s in launch period so dunno why its suddenly bad for Nintendo.. guess its just the usual double standards


No, they usually don't. That wasn't the case with Xbox->Xbox 360 or Gamecube->Wii.


I'm on about new consoles being outsold by consoles that are available.
Nextbox and PS4 will.get outsold by consoles available now during its launch because the old consoles are established

Oh, and I'd like to add that PS3 sold more in December 2006 than Wii U did in December 2012. That's pretty sad.

they have the PC version of Darksiders 2 running on WiiU in 1080 native at 60 fps and full graphics options on. Neither 360 or PS3 can come close

Man...cut Nintendo some slack for once. This system has crappy games so far. The good ones are on the way.


How is that the users fault? Nintendo has been in the business for longer than anyone else. They should no better than to release crap and expect good sales. Lightning doesn't strike twice at the same place.


Yes it does. I live in the Australian outback.

US only, and not by much. Add in the Japanese sales numbers for both and you have a much bigger gap with the Wii U in the lead. (even with the shortages for Sony, the PS3 didn't sell out in either region come December, so this is a quite fair comparison)
