Nintendo sold 3.06 million Wii U consoles between launch and the end of 2012. That's the big news from Nintendo's latest financial report which also reveals how many Wii U games the company sold during the time period.
Wii U launched in the US on 18 November 2012 while Nintendo's new console was released on 30 November in Europe and Japan on 8 December. As of 31 December, Wii U had sold 3.06 million while software sales stood at 11.69 million.
In other news, buoyed by the release of Animal Crossing: New Leaf (2.73 million copies sold) in Japan and New Super Mario Bros 2 (5.96 million), 12.71 million 3DS consoles were sold globally between April and December 2012, bringing the lifetime total up to 29.84.
A further 3.53 million Wii consoles were sold between April and December but it was not enough to take the console over 100 million sales. It now stands at 99.38 million.
However, DS broke the 100 million barrier a while ago, with another 2.15 million sales taking it up to 153.67 million.
Is that enough stats for you?
