Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has talked about Wii U sales over the Christmas period with news publication, Reuters. Iwata says sales of Nintendo’s latest home console appear to be steady, but they don’t seem to be setting the world on fire like sales of its predecessor, the Wii. Iwata summed up that sales of the console are “not bad”. Here’s what he had to say to Reuters.
“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. But sales are not bad, and I feel it’s selling steadily.”
“It was the first time Nintendo released two models of the game console at the same time … and I believe there was a challenge with balancing this. Specifically, inventory levels for the premium, deluxe package was unbalanced as many people wanted that version and couldn’t find it.”
