Wii U

Just because the Wii U launched last week doesn’t mean the Wii is dead. In fact, three of them were sold for every Wii U consoles.

Nintendo announced that they sold 1.2 million hardware units last week. Over 400k were the new kid on the block (pictured above) but it’s ancient predecessor held its own with over 300k units sold. Handheld devices accounted for over half a million with almost an even split between the DS (250k) and the 3DS (275k).

“Wii U is essentially sold out of retail and we are doing our best to continually replenish stock,”¬†Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime told CNET. “Retailers are also doing their best to get the product to store shelves. But as soon as product hits retail, they’re selling out immediately.”
