The Wii U sold 55k units in the United States in January
Yup, it's the worst recorded monthly sales in the US for a living console since 2005. Even the Gamecube never sold this low until it was discontinued. In fact, if you compare third month sales for other systems, the Wii U was below even the Dreamcast and Playstation Vita.
These numbers aren't just poor. They're fucking terrible. Nintendo seems to have completely lost the casual market that they built up with the Wii and all they have left now are their core Nintendo fans. But then again Nintendo did save the 3DS, so who knows what will happen. Come on $199 Deluxe Model!
