Hardware sales

  • Wii lifetime: 101,560,000
  • Wii U lifetime: 10,010,000
  • 3DS lifetime: 53,070,000

Nintendo has posted an encouraging profit (8.3bn yen / £43m) for the months April, May and June. Last year it was in the red (-9.9bn yen / -£51m).

The good news is 3DS sales (1m for the quarter), Splatoon sales and amiibo sales. Splatoon has sold 1.62m units since its release at the end of May, helping the Wii U edge over the 10m sales milestone (10.01m specifically) after two-and-a-half years on sale. Considering Splatoon is Wii U exclusive, and it was on sale for two full months, that's a convincing result for the new IP. Then again, Mario Kart 8 is owned by 5.11 million people - more than half of the Wii U audience.

It is the Dreamcast all over again, coming up to almost 3 years from launch this November and even the numbers are almost the same, 10 million, talk about history repeating itself. lol

What is even more ironic is that BEFORE the console even released people were saying it was going to be a dreamcast (sales) situation.

The problem now is, what games are coming out that would sell the system before the NX comes in for the kill, i can only think of Zelda, assuming it's still coming to the U,  i don't think Starfox U is going to do big numbers as it looks from the trailers somewhat meh, and Xenoblade Chronicles X appears to be another meh game if reviews from the import version are anything to go by.

 

It does feel like the wind down of the U has begun, sad but at least we got some quailty first party games to fall back on, U will sit next to my dreamcast, assuming the gamepad still work in 10 years time. :o
