We're told by someone with access to the NPD's data that sales for January were "well under" 100,000 units. By our estimates, sales were somewhere between 45,000 and 59,000 units for the month, which is lower than any of the three previous-generation home consoles sold in their worst months, with the possible exception of a recent performance by the original Wii.
Well this explains why Nintendo is losing all the exclusives. And I'd be surprised if we don't see a price cut in the net month or two.. but hey I was crazy earlier to suggest a price cut in the first half of 2013, or even 2013 at all before apparently
Sad, but hardly unexpected news. Can't say my WiiU has gotten very much use lately, I tried playing some Black Ops online in the zombie mode last weekend... yeah, almost impossible to find games, only on one gametype and map could I even find games at all.
I hope nintendo comes out with some real nintendo games for this console soon as I can actually make use of my girlfriends xmas gift to us. It doesn't help that the very few games available on the e-shop over here can only be bought between 23:00-02:00 at night.
