Iwata: Wii U Sales "Not Bad," But Not As Successful As Wii

Posted on Monday, January 7 @ 11:53:52 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


While not as insanely popular as the Wii, Nintendo's tablet-centric console is "selling steadily" according to Nintendo president, Satoru Iwata.

In an interview with Reuters, Iwata explained that "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 regards to the challenges that come with launching two different SKUs, Iwata went on to add:

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 [Deluxe] package was unbalanced as many people wanted that version and couldn't find it.

What kind of year do you think the Wii U will have in 2013? Will it be rife with success, or will Nintendo's console get crushed under the weight of competing next-gen hardware? Let us know in the comments below.
