Nintendo Will Not Meet Selling Target For Wii U In 2013, Say Analysts

Nintendo has no hope of meeting its nine million unit sales target for the Wii U in 2013, in keeping with predictions from many analysts. Speaking to Bloomberg, two analysts have told that the corporate won’t sell the 9 million Wii U units that president Satura Iwata had promised in October.

“They steadfastly refuse to consider that the product is not interesting to consumers,” according to Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter. He also further added, “They will fail to hit 9 million, and they will likely miss their profit goals”.

Meanwhile, SMBC Nikko securities analyst Eiji Maeda says the Wii U is drooping as a result of it’s become too niche.

“Wii U has become a game console only for Nintendo fans,” Maeda said. “Wii U needs ground-breaking software to draw casual and hardcore gamers.” Pachter foretold the Wii U will sell six million units in the financial year ending March 2014, whereas Maeda predicts 6.5 million.
