Wii U Sales Numbers Continue To Suffer
As if more bad news couldn’t come out of Nintendo. Nintendo of Japan has just released sales numbers for the Wii U Between April and June, and its not looking good. Worldwide the Wii U has shipped 160k in the course of 3 months compared to the Xbox 360 and PS3 which ship 100k+ in 1 month time period. Divided into the 3 regions Wii U has sold 90k in Japan, 60k in North America, and 10k in other territories.
Nintendo emphasizes that they had a fewer key titles at the time and that’s why sales have been low. Hopefully this holiday season, sales will pick up for Nintendo as they struggle now to get their next wave of franchises out there.
