As the next generation of consoles approaches, the Nintendo Wii U is going to have less and less time to get a solid footing in the video game consumer market. Nintendo revealed that, to date, the Nintendo Wii U has sold 3.45 million units, 390,000 sales coming from the past quarter. This is half a million less units than it anticipated selling after a downward revision several months ago. Since the launch of the Wii U, Nintendo has sold 4 million original Wii consoles. This means that 500,000 more people were interested in the old console than the new one.

Should Nintendo fail to sell several times more consoles by the end of the year, the next generation of consoles will arrive applying even stronger pressure downward for the Wii U.
