"Nintendo's Wii U has had a torrid start to 2013. The struggling console sold around 64,000 units in North America last month, while Microsoft's ageing Xbox 360 managed 302,000.
February's Wii U figures were up slightly on January - Nintendo managed to shift just 57,000 then, Gamasutra reported.
There's been no real change in the console's fortunes, however. January's figure was apparently lower due to the number of second-hand consoles on the market immediately after Christmas.
Wii U sold less in January than the weakest ever months for PlayStation 2, Xbox, PS3, Xbox 360 and the original Wii.
It's worth bearing in mind that GameCube and Wii sales only ebbed that low right before their successor consoles came out - not three months after their launch, as the Wii U has done."
So as we can see the Wii U's launch has been difficult. Is this something Nintendo are going to recover from? Considering the "buy" rating for Sony stock and strong demand for the PS4 at gamestop, do you think the Wii U will recover in time for the release of next-gen competition?
Note: This is NOT about general sales per week - no need to point out Feb was better. It's showing how so early on in its lifespan the Wii U's weakest week is incredibly low. Make of that what you will, but no need to point out other weeks.
