The lights are on
If you braved the malls this past holiday season, you may have noticed that Wii Us were still on many shelves. Nintendo is certainly aware of that, but don't think the company is considering the system's launch a failure or even a disappointment.
Nintendo President Satoru Iwata told Reuters that people shouldn't take that availability the wrong way. "At the end of the Christmas season, it wasn't as though stores in the U.S. had no Wii U left in stock, as it was when Wii was first sold in that popular boom," he said. "But sales are not bad, and I feel it's selling steadily."
He declined to provide specific figures, but according to the Japanese magazine company Enterbrain, Wii U sales in Japan have exceeded 600,000 units in December alone.

The sales ate lower because parents didn't buy the system for there kids like they did for the wii. I think too a lot of people may wait for a price drop. Me personally I think the wii U is overpriced for the amount of memory it it offers . Down the rd I may pick it up but for now I haven't seen a reason to purchase it
steady is good
I'm happy the Wii-U is doing decent. I'll probably get one at some point.
I'm having fun with it.
Good for them.
I don't see any system ever coming out the gate again, the way the Wii did. Too much competition now for peoples attention.
