Satoru Iwata, President of Nintendo, has come out and made a statement in regards the reports that the Wii U has sold poorly since its launch in November 2012.
Iwata responded to these claims saying;
“At the end of the Christmas season, it wasn’t as though stores in the U.S. had no Wii U left in stock, as it was when Wii was first sold in that popular boom, but sales are not bad, and I feel it’s selling steadily.”
When asked about the confusion of two versions of the console he had this to say;
“It was the first time Nintendo released two models of the game console at the same time … and I believe there was a challenge with balancing this, specifically, inventory levels for the premium, deluxe package was unbalanced as many people wanted that version and couldn’t find it.”
