Excuse me, more spaghetti please.
And bring some more egg rolls while you're at it.

So I'm confused 3.06+ 2.41 = 5.47M units
Nintendo has reported 5.86M units. Why the discrepancy?

I don't need violent videogames to reassure myself that I'm an adult.

Nothing shocking on the hardware front

Pokemon on a rampage, 3D World and WWHD broke a million each, and I'm ssooooo happy to see Link Between Worlds sell this well ^_^

But due to their low expectations for Wii U sales to the end of the FY, looks like we won't see MK8 till the later half of spring : /

I knew the Wii U would reach 6 million first.

That is 5.86 million sold, not shipped.

It's 5.86 million units sold to retailers (i.e. number of units shipped).

I do believe that the discrepancy is simply you adding the wrong numbers together.

(FY 2012/13, Oc-Dc + Ja-Mr)
3.06 + 0.39
= 3.45m

(FY 2013/14, Ap-Jn + Jl-Sp + Oc-Dc)
0.16 + 0.30 + 1.95
= 2.41m

3.45 + 2.41
= 5.86m


Anyway, it might be craphouse compared to the Wii, PS4 and Xbox One's sales, but at this point it's still within the same order of magnitude as the PS3 and Xbox 360's respective first-year-and-a-bit worldwide sales ("shipped", if anybody wants to be pedantic)... It certainly did do pretty well on its first partial quarter, which was where the 3.06m came from.

With an Oc-Dc 2013 that much better than its Oc-Dc 2012--thanks to the improved game selection, reduced price, and many improvements to the OS and online functionality--it's a wonder trolls can deny that the Wii U is building momentum and stands poised to reign triumphant just like the 3DS and the Wii!
