Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Wii U Surpasses 2 Million Sales

According to VGChartz, the Wii U has finally passed the 2 million sales mark, all within just around a month. Nintendo hopes to sell around 5.5 million units by April 2013. I am not sure if they will be making that mark, but hopefully they will come close to it.

North America is in the lead currently, this is to be expected since the Wii U released there first. Following North America is Japan, Europe, and finally Rest of World:

These numbers are sure to be constantly changing, as more and more people buy the newest Nintendo console. Currently the Wii U has already sold 81% of the original Wii’s numbers for the same time frame, despite costing $100 more. This is an astonishing feat for Nintendo.

Cross your fingers in hopes that Nintendo reaches their sales numbers that they are wising for.

A little over 3 million in 3 months? Its definitely possible, as long as they can maintain momentum past the holiday season. Unfortunately, I feel that they'll miss their predictions again, if only by a bit. It seems to be a trend with Nintendo lately.

Nintendo will miss their prediction of 5Mil, I'm sure of it. It's just a little too high.

I was hoping for 2.5Mil by the end of the year for the Wii U though...

Total numbers now are 2.2 million. 

All it has to do is sell more than 300k next week to reach that.

That wouldn't be by the end of the year though.

Ship  5.5 milliion, not sell 5.5 million.

There can be a very significant difference in those 2 figures.

January and Feburary are very slow months for hardware sales, they needed to sell more than this to get to 5.5 million by end of March 2013, they're going to miss their sales projections.

I think they will end up shipping 5.5 million units. I don' think they will sell that many units though. Might be close though.
