Over 3 million Wii U's sold; Nintendo net income 160 million

It took 6 months for Nintendo to sell 1.5 GameCube units. In a little more than 2 months Wii U has already reached 3 million sold units.

Now, did GameCube suffer an early death? No. So what makes you think Wii U will?

Microsoft's game division did profit though, Sony hasn't released numbers yet they are doing that next week.

From articles i see, it says falling xbox360 sales caused a drop in revenue. Doesnt mention profit at all...

Better than expected Wii U sales given all the negative sales topics, it has been a slow launch, but hardly a disastrous one. Sales should pick up when it gets some more high-profile exclusives, not to mention a price cut (I predict it'll get one before the year is over).

3DS is already at almost 30 million sold BTW, wasn't that system supposed to be doomed too?

The amount of posts from trolls ITT is quite astounding. Damage control, is what it's called, yes?

Anyway, glad they're doing good. 3 mil is good. Not fantastic, but definitively good. Future looks bright, especially after that Nintendo Direct.

Solid numbers considering the lack of new software.

Also, apparently these are shipped numbers and not sold numbers. Which fanboys on this board said don't count when Sony does it, so... :)

You apparently don't understand how retail works.
