Wii-U blitzes past the 2 million mark


The Wii-U hasn’t taken the world by storm as the original Wii did but at the same time it isn’t a sales slouch either with the unofficial tracking charts now marking it as passing the 2 million mark.

This has taken just over a month which is around 80% of the original Wii’s sales from the launch window which is pretty incredible as it costs over R1000 more than the original Wii.

I haven’t yet picked up my personal one but it is on my shopping list but our official review found the console to be a solid piece of kit and the first games have been exceptionally good.

Nintendo gave themselves a target of 5.5 million sold by April 2013 which may be a bit tough to make but I think they’ll be close.

I'm cranky, arrogant and ever so amazingly annoying but when you get to know me you will also realise I'm honest and incredibly good at describing myself... now pass me that beer
