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 lows...you 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.
