The Wii U seems to have had a terrible six months in the United Kingdom. The console has only sold 179,000 units of software sold at retail so far this year. This means that the console has barely matched retail software sales for the ailing PlayStation Vita in the United Kingdom. Digital software sales wouldn’t propel the console much further. Thankfully, there’s a number of high-profile games coming out in the coming months so software and hardware sales figures should improve.
