Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has said that Wii U has got off to a steady start even though the new console hasn't sold out in the US.
While Nintendo's chief didn't reveal any sales figures, he reflected on the sales at the end of the festive period.
"At the end of the Christmas season, it wasn't as though stores in the US had no Wii U left in stock, as it was when Wii was first sold in that popular boom," he told Reuters. "But sales are not bad, and I feel it's selling steadily."
Iwata also reflected on the decision to release two models of the Wii U on the same day - the Basic Pack and the Premium Pack.
"It was the first time Nintendo released two models of the game console at the same time... and I believe there was a challenge with balancing this," he said. "Specifically, inventory levels for the premium, deluxe package was unbalanced as many people wanted that version and couldn't find it."
