Wii U Sales “Aren’t Bad”, Sells 640,000 Units in Japan
“At the end of the Christmas season, it wasn’t as though stores in the U.S. had no Wii U left in stock, as it was when Wii was first sold in that popular boom. But sales are not bad, and I feel it’s selling steadily.”
In Japan the Wii U sold 638,339 units during its December launch. The data collected by Enterbrain was collected from December 8th to December 30th.
“It was the first time Nintendo released two models of the game console at the same time … and I believe there was a challenge with balancing this. Specifically, inventory levels for the premium, deluxe package was unbalanced as many people wanted that version and couldn’t find it.”
