Nintendo sheds light on Wii U sales

Wii U sales 160,000 units in 3 months.

Wii U sales 160,000 units in 3 months.

It’s common knowledge that Nintendo’s newest console is struggling. Nintendo has recently revealed just how bad the console’s sales are.

According to the report recently released by Nintendo, the Wii U sold a total of 160,000 units between April 1 and June 30 of this year, globally. This means that the console is simply selling fifty-three thousand units every month, which is not very goof for the company.

Said Nintendo, “The worldwide sales of ‘Wii U’ hardware and software were 0.16 million units and 1.03 million units respectively mainly due to the release of few key first-party titles this quarter to strongly drive the hardware sales.”

They did mention that the software sales were better, with over a million games being sold worldwide. This is nothing compared to the 3DS software sales, however, which scored a total of 11 million games in the same period.

Nintendo confirmed that even the original Wii outsold the Wii U, moving 210,000 units during the last three months. 

Will Wii U sales increase, or will the console be doomed?
