Nintendo launched their new console, and kicked off the next generation of gaming, back in November 2012.
At the time, getting your hands on a Wii U was a hard task. To Nintendo's credit however, they made good on the promise of having plenty of console out over time to make gamers happy. As it turns out, they may have already met their quota.
According to Gamasutra, who got word of NPD data, sales of the Nintendo Wii U are "well under" 100,000 during the month of January. The estimates of where exactly the sales figures fall is between 45K and 59K, meaning sales of the Wii U basically crashed since the start of 2013.
During it's most recent financial report, Nintendo changed it's projections on how many Wii U consoles is expected to ship. Originally they had estimated they would ship 5.5 million consoles to North America by the end of March, but due to the sluggish sales, they cut that number down to 4 million.
Even with the sluggish sales, Nintendo continues to make a move towards a price cut. It should be interesting to see the sales figures over the next few months, with tax season going on, that's another time of the year where people send a good amount of cash on video games.
