After a promising start sales of Wii U deflated and fell short of expectations by Nintendo. The Japanese corporation acknowledged that the performance of the console was not the best and declined a lot in the beginning of the new year, but remained committed to the Wii successor.
Satoru Iwata, president of Nintendo, confirmed the sluggish sales of Wii U (only 3 million units so far) but away rumors of a price cut . The desktop device will maintain its current price and apply other measures to push sales.
The main drawback is the Wii U console itself but the software that power, as explained. Iwata hopes that the solution to problems is to launch future updates and more games debut and exclusive services .

is no doubt that Wii U has a big year ahead and the creators should take every opportunity to enhance their performance in the market. Do you think there is hope in the future of the console?
