Wii U March 2014 Sales at 70K Units, 3DS at 159K Units – Analyst
Nintendo continues to struggle with home console sales.
While the PS4 and Xbox One have had an excellent March, according to the latest NPD Report, with the former being the highest selling console in the US for the third month in a row.
But what about the Nintendo Wii U and 3DS?
According to analyst David Gibson, while Nintendo’s handheld is still going great guns, sales of its home consoles is dismal at best.
“Wii was 28k, Wii U just over 70k, PSP around 5k, PSV little over 10k, 3DS 159k. No Nintendo press release that I can find.”
So there’s no official confirmation from Nintendo but NeoGAF user creamsugar provided NPD sales figures which have been accurate in the past. Nintendo has been struggling to meet sales targets for the Wii U for a good year now. What’s the plan now, especially with major titles like Super Smash Bros. out by year end for the console and heading to the Wii U first? We’ll find out in the coming months.
