During its launch, the Wii U sold over 400,000 units in North America. During the holidays, it wasn't too hot of an item, according to Sterne Agee's Arvind Bhatia.
GameSpot reports the industry analyst Bhatia said that the availability for the Wii U was "abundant" and said the console's software attach rate was "low."
However, Bhatia did say that the Deluxe version of the console, which sells for $350 USD, sold much better than the $300 basic version. The reasons being for that include the bundled game Nintendo Land, a 32 GB hard drive, and an overall "better value" to the Deluxe version.
No sales figures have been announced for Europe and Australia as of yet. Japan sold 308,570 units in the first weekend of sales. This shouldn't reflect the overall run the Wii U will potentially have, as it's only one figure of holiday sales.
