I'm curious if they'll hit their 5.5 million sold by April goal.

Well 2.2 million in a month with 4 months left i'd say that goal is smashed try at least 7 million by then.

Don't forget the fact that we just went through december, an obvious boost in sales, and the Wii U barely had any shortages after its first couple of weeks. That being said, 5.5 million is still quite realistic, but I reckon they should haste some announcements out of E3 2013.

That's good to know
No reason to panic (as of yet).

actually wiiu sells are fantastic and will hit the 5 million mark by march...considering the economy, haters, bad advertisements, lying press, push back of major games, delay of a couple features, competition dropping their prices to all time couldnt ask for better sales and will only pick up sales when things smooths out and with better games

Yup and I can't wait and so many people hate but haters will hate on something or someone doing really good and I expect the wii u to sell 10 million units or more by the end of this year possibly more and pikmin 3 will boost sales a lot and I can't wait to see what's shown at e3

Unusual modesty coming from the horse's mouth. I'm curious to see how things play out in the near future.
