Wii U Sells 46,000 Units in July (North America) | Rumor

wiiu-zelda-refurbished-640x480

Unconfirmed sales data for July 2015 NPD put the Wii U at 46,000 units. Nintendo hasn’t confirmed how much they sold so that’s why the story is labeled rumor. The leaked number comes from the usual NPD leaker Creamsugar. Via: GoNintendo, Source: NeoGAF

    I wouldn’t be surprised, there are still people that don’t know what the WiiU is.

    NEOGaf should never be used as a reliable source of information

      I use NeoGAF all the time. People only get upset when it comes to sales numbers.

  • GreysonTetsuya

    Until Nintendo confirms otherwise I’ll believe this, it makes sense for it to do especially bad after this e3.

    NEOgaf isn’t a reliable source of information.

      Nintendo 2015 Q2 (April-June) Wii U North America shipments: 190,000

      Creamsugar’s Neogaf numbers (US only):
      April: ~43,000
      May: ~42,500
      June: ~70,000
      Total: ~155,500

      Factor in sales from some other NA regions like Canada and Mexico and you get the 190,000 number that Nintendo reportedly shipped.

      Neogaf definitely is not 100% accurate, but Creamsugar’s numbers are not complete garbage. They can be used to gage a platform’s performance.

    Neogaf should never be used as a source by anyone.

      This.

      I remember Tamaki tweeted me to a NEOgaf post to try and ‘prove’ himself right about Devil’s Third, lol.

      Nothing wrong with using NeoGAF as a source for information. Especially when it clearly labeled rumor.

    The Wii U sold over 80,000 units last July. 2015 July sales represent a decline of over 40% YoY. Yikes!!

    • PRIMUS

      It Sold about 60 000 in Japan in July, Couple that with Europe, the WiiU sold about 120 000 world wide for July. That is good, especially since it is selling at a profit.

      • awang0718

        Profit is great, but it won’t amount to much when the platform is only selling ~120,000 units per month worldwide. That is an abysmal number. Thank god Amiibo and the (New ) 3DS exist.

          True, at this point I really want the NX to come out so Nintendo can get a fresh start. These Wii U numbers are painful.

      • Tedthesporthead

        Yes, I’m sure Nintendo is thrilled that they are beating the PS3 and 360 all the while making a profit.

        • Wegotexclusives

          Since when is making profit a bad thing? Oh wait since the ps3.

          • Tedthesporthead

            Profit is great! You must have misunderstood me. Beating the the PS3 and 360 is the icing.

          • Tedthesporthead

            making a profit is great. The Lost Angeles Clippers were the laughing stock of the NBA during the 90’s. Guess what, they made a profit.

            The goal should be making a profit and dominating your competition like the 3DS does.

          • Wegotexclusives

            You can’t have the cake and eat it too. especially when you know that the wiiu is the most delicious cake of the 3.

          • awang0718

            The Wii U “cake” is also the size of a crumb…

    • Wanderlei

      You are so passive aggressive, its hilarious.

      • awang0718

        Just stating facts. Did the “Yikes!!” part of my comment get to you?? That would be “hilarious.”
