VGChartz: http://www.vgchartz.com/article/252605/wii-u-sales-top-8-million-worldwide/ This is very good performance, IMO! Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros. have obviously helped keep up momentum for Wii U sales, so here's hoping 2015 will bring people (and developers) even more reasons to support the console. I know it's VGChartz, but the numbers sound very believable. Of course, naysayers still dismiss these numbers stating crap like the Wii U had a one year's headstart... That may be true, but other platforms in the 7th gen still had strong anticipated releases well into 2013 (e.g. The Last of Us, GTA V) and a lot of people likely skipped the Wii U on launch day to wait for the PS4 and Xbox One first. So with that in mind, 8 million sold units worldwide is impressive.
