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. Â Hopefully this holiday season, sales will pick up for Nintendo as they struggle now to get their next wave of franchises out there.
