February 2013 NPD: Wii U around 64,000 units

Update: Seems the 80,000 figure was inaccurate. Dent tweeted that the the Wii U sold “way under” that number. 64,000 units or so is looking more likely.

It’s uncommon to obtain official data from the NPD these days. The company does, however, tend to leave clues about the performance of hardware.

Case and point: NPD has confirmed that Wii U sales are up 40% over January. An initial figure suggested that the Wii U sold around 55,000 units in the US during the month. After a few math calculations, that would put the console at around 64,000 units at a minimum for February, with VentureBeat’s Kevin Dent specifically listing an estimate of 80,000 units.

That’s not exactly an encouraging stat for Nintendo, but it is a start – and sales have obviously seen a boost over February. With software finally starting to arrive in March – including LEGO City: Undercover, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, and Need for Speed: Most Wanted U – sales may pick up further.

Wait a minute...

55000 * 1.4 = 77000

...something doesn't add up here.

Less then previously thought. With numbers this low I think this puts to rest the rumors of January only being so awful because of returns.

This is good news. Sales are picking up, and once big software titles come and the inevitable price cut kicks in, sales will continue to go up.

I guess going from reeeealllly bad sales to just regular bad sales is good news.

Well, a sales increase certainly isn't bad news...
