I'm just trying to make sense of the numbers bcuz 390,000 sounds like a lot. How well was the Wii doing at this point?

The Wii was a damn miracle and will never happen again.

The Wii sold a bit more than half a million in November 2006 and about another 2.4 million in December 2006, giving it a 2006 total of very close to 3m.

It then sold very nearly a million per month worldwide in each of the first 3 months of 2007, bringing it to nearly 6m by the end of March 2007 (actual figure was 5.84m).

That figure doesn't take into account the fact that the Wii was sold out for a lot of that time, with lots of potential customers finding it difficult to actually purchase a Wii.

390,000 Wii U sales in the first 3 months of this year, worldwide, compares to 2,884,000 Wii sales during the first 3 months of 2007. Source for this figure is:

Part of the appeal of the Wii early on was the fact that it was hard to find. Guaranteed sales of tools who need whatever floes off the shelves. Because Nintendo kept supply of Wii U up, these same tools didn't rush out to buy it.
