With the publication of Nintendo’s 2013-14 financial results, the company has posted a handy infographic detailing each console generation’s life-to-date sales. Beginning from the Nintendo Entertainment System to the corporation’s current home console the Wii U, Nintendo has posted lifetime hardware and software sales for each device, including handhelds.
The current generation of consoles, namely the Wii U and 3DS have garnered the lowest sales, which is to be expected given that they are the newest consoles. It’s also in due part to the number of rising smart phones and tablets Nintendo’s core market have acquired, as well as a number of other economic factors.
Currently all software sales have exceeded 100 million units, bar from Nintendo’s current home console. However, according to its financial report, Nintendo is hoping to rectify software sales by “enriching” the user’s experience on the Wii U GamePad and utilising its unique features through key software titles. You can take a look at the infographic above.
