Wii U Shows Strong First Week Sales

Nintendo’s sixth home console is off to a strong start but not quite the sales that its predecessor saw.

Reports are that Nintendo sold approximately 400,000 Wii U consoles in its first week of release. That is a strong start but not as big as the Wii’s release which saw 600,000 units sold back in 2006.

It was an all around great sales week for anything Nintendo in general. Along with the Wii U’s sales, Nintendo announced that almost 300,000 Wii’s, 275,000 DS systems and 250,000 3DS systems were sold in the same week.

Only time will tell if the Wii U is truly a hit with sales always spiking at launch and during the holiday season.
