In it's entire lifespan of over 4 years, Wii U sold 3.3 million units in Japan.
Its successor has overtaken this figure, in less than 10 months.
EDIT: On further investigation and tracing this news back to its source, the original article jumped the gun somewhat, as it cites Famitsu sales up to the 24th of Dec, at which point Switch was just 10k shy of Wii U's total. Nevertheless, in the 6 days since then the system will have sold far more than 10k, so the statement still stands even if the cited figures don't reflect it.Last edited by curl-6 - on 29 December 2017
Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
