Nintendo sold only 160,000 Wii U consoles worldwide last quarter
Nintendo’s latest quarterly earnings report is out and its not pretty for the Wii U. In the period between April and June 2013 Nintendo sold only 160,000 Wii U units worldwide. These meagre sales put the grand total at 3.6 million units sold lifetime to date.
Out of the 160,000 Wii U units sold 90,000 of them were sold in Japan, 60,000 of them in the US and the rest, including Australia and all of Europe 10,000. These numbers are even worse when you consider that the Wii outside the system in the same period.
That’s not less than a complete disaster for Nintendo. The silver lining here is that Nintendo is likely not manufacturing the Wii U at the moment and clearing stock of all of those old un-updated Wii U Units.
Well then, can Nintendo turn it around?
