Wii U sales hit 890,000

Written by Fudzilla staff



470,000 units in December


Sales of Nintendo’s new Wii U console have hit 890,000 in its first 41 days on the market.

The Wii U launched in the US on November 18 and quite a few units were pre-ordered. However, it’s worth noting that the console is still not available in many markets, so the figures don’t exactly paint the full picture.

Nintendo managed to shift 470,000 units in December and sales appear to be somewhat slower than the original Wii, launched in 2006. However, the Wii U generated more profit for the company, as it is somewhat pricier than its predecessor.

It’s not a bad start, but we have yet to see how Microsoft’s and Sony’s next-gen consoles will do.
