The Wii U has sold 3.45 million units worldwide to date, missing Nintendo’s goal of 4 million units for the financial year — itself a lowered expectation after the company initially predicted it would sell 5.5 million systems. Three months ago, Nintendo announced worldwide Wii U sales of 3.06 million.
I just started using my 3DS again after not touching it for nearly a year. While the games are more expensive and it sucks to have to carry a second device, having the dedicated buttons made playing a better experience than what I’ve gotten used to on my iPhone. I hope Nintendo isn’t forced to get out of the hardware business this generation.
