Nintendo Wii U Sales Continue To Disappoint

Nintendo Wii U

When it was released in November 2012, the Nintendo Wii U console was expected to bring in solid business. By the end of December, it had sold a solid 3 million units. January and February, as reported by Gamasutra, have not been kind to the Wii U.

In January, the console sold just 57,000 units. There was a slight spike in February with 64,000 units sold. These numbers, when averaged out on a weekly basis, are lower than any recorded week for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3.

The Wii U GamePad was expected to make its mark on console gaming, but it has not lived up to its expectations. One wonders if the anticipation of the PlayStation 4 is keeping consumers at bay.

With such news as Wii U loyalists needing an external hard drive to download the digital version of Lego City Undercover or titles such as Crysis 3 not being made for the console, sales may continue to disappoint.
