Nintendo Sells a Lot of Wii U’s, Internet Predicts Total Failure.

by Ray on

We don’t typically report on sales figures around here since Mr. Face isn’t a big fan of “the whole math thing” but Nintendo recently released some figures detailing how well their new home console sold during the holiday window. According to Professor Scott “boom boom” Moffitt, the Wii U “has surpassed its predecessor in perhaps the most important category: revenue generation.” Now many of you will no doubt point to the fact that this increased revenue obviously stems from the fact that the U is significantly more expensive than the original Wii. This means that while yes, more money was made overall, in actuality significantly less consoles were sold. To this notion I say “quiet you.” Moffitt continues: “The demand for the Deluxe SKU, which was essentially sold out at retail this holiday, and the strong attach rate of New Super Mario Bros. U, shows that we have the value and the games to drive momentum in 2013. We look forward to offering great new experiences and bringing smiles to millions of new faces throughout the year.”

Just like your creepy Uncle.
