There is a report floating around that Nintendo needs to sell 8 million Wii U consoles to reach their 9 million goal by March. This means that they have to sell around 2 million consoles per month. This goal seems rather unrealistic based on past sales figures. Nintendo has sold around 4.3 million consoles worldwide since launching over a year ago.
However, Nintendo’s sales for the console was boosted 340% in the month of November. Super Mario World 3D was one of the reasons for the sales boost as the game sold around 215,000 copies in the first 8 days, according to NPD Group.
The Wii U is expected to sell only around 25% as well as the Wii predecessor. The 100 millionth Wii console has just been sold.
