Nintendo Halting Wii U Production This Week

Farewell to the Nintendo Wii U, we barely knew you. Seriously, I think I used one once. Maybe. It was sad to see the company follow up the extremely popular Wii with the lackluster Wii U. Let's just hope the company's new console doesn't share the Wii U's fate.

Nintendo will end Wii U production this Friday, multiple sources have confirmed to Eurogamer. At the last official count, as of 30th September, Nintendo had shipped 13.36m Wii U consoles. The Wii U's final tally will likely now be only slightly more. For comparisons sake, GameCube sold 21m. N64 sold 32m. Wii sold 101m.
