If this YOY trends continue...

2013: Wii U's sales worldwide: 3,189,230 * 0.694529.... = 2,215,013.286

Predicted Wii U's sales WW at end of 2014: 3,189,230 + 2,215,013.286 =5,404,243.286

Predicted Wii U sales WW LTD at end of 2014:  Predicted Wii U's sales WW at end of 2014 + Total LTD Wii U's '13 sales:

Predicted Wii U sales WW LTD at end of 2014: 5,404,243.286 + 5,420,883 = 10,825,076.29

At least 10,000,000 Wii U sales WW LTD Guaranteed.

Even if it doesnt make it, its much better than the slump it was in last year.



Let's hope Super Smash Bros helps to keep sales at those levels or higher!



Switch: purchased. Fire Emblem and Smash Bros. Ultimate time!

for some reason everything is overtracked except the ps4 which is undertacked if that is true then I dont know

I don't think it will be up 69% for December.

It's easier to have flucuations like that when you're talking about low level sales that can be skewed in baseline relatively easily. 

For example it's not so hard to go from 40k one year to 90k the next year given a better library for instance. 

Put going from 460k (I believe this was Wii U's Dec 13) to 1+ million year over year is much, much harder.

True! But said title is getting its first holiday sales along with Super Smash Bros Wii U. if Nintendo markets the latter right and not let 3DS cannibalize its significance.



I like that number! 69% Mhmm! What a nice number!

This is the GameCube's holiday 2003 (this was also its peak holiday):

November - 754k
December - 1.16 million

Assuming the 69% increase holds for Wii U

November - 334k (198k Nov 13)
December - 774k (460k Dec 13)

I would probably say this year though November might be a bit higher than that and December a little lower than 774k but the overall number (roughly 1 million in Wii U sales from Nov/Dec) is probably right.
