Wii U has 3.82 software attach rate

It appears that analysts claiming the Wii U would have a software attach rate close to 1 game per console were dramatically wrong. New sales data shows that the average Wii U owner has bought almost four games for the system. (Nintendo, Wii U)

"I’m not sure if these numbers include Nintendo Land as it is bundled"

It would. To not include those figures would be dumb.

Anyway it is good. It makes sense to have that sort of figure with a new console. I would be worried or in a way not (as the game could be just that good) if it didn't have that sort of attachment especially when the people who by a console this early tend to be the major console brand fans

However, I don't know if those numbers were that high for the 360 when it launched. The number seems good, but that is also to be expected based on the number of AAA titles that were available at the Wii U's launch compared to the number of AAA titles that were available at the 360's launch. With the Wii U being late to the party, they have been blessed with some ports of some amazing games from the 360/PS3 library, which definitely helps.

I wonder if this number includes eShop purchases too. Games like Trine 2, Nano Assault Neo and Mighty Switch Force have been selling very well.

I would imagine they do as it comes from Nintendo themselves and digital software is still software and they are the only ones who know how well digital sales do

I have 8 games including eShop, I also know a few people that have between 3-5 games also including eShop and my son has 4. However, I think that Nintendo needs a lot more games to come out soon because I don't see these games lasting too long. Most games are multiplats that are great but nothing special so lets get the ball rolling on Bayonetta 2 and X.

physical copies - Nintendo Land, Black Ops 2, NSMBU, Zombi U

digital purchases - Trine 2, Nano Assault Neo, Scribblenauts, AC3

I have enough there to tide me over for a while...

ZombiU is the only one that I have completed at this point.. lol

Cool, add me if you like! Right now I'm finishing up Bayonetta on 360 and going to pick up God of War on my PS3 and Fire Emblem on 3DS XL next. I'll be getting Rayman and a few other exclusive Wii U games soon and also have COD on Wii U. My NNID is DarkSouls, one word, two capital letters. Have fun! (edit) I'll try to be on as often as I can but have to jump across every platform for a limited amount of time because I started my new career on Monday, but seeing as gaming is my only addiction and drug of choice I'll be on as much as I can as long as the kid and wifey don't feel too neglected lol!

Funny how the article with Pachter flapping his gums about Nintendo getting it "Wrong" with the Wii U has already reached the front page and will stay there until tomorrow while this probably won't get much recognition at all. Just give the Wii U and Vita time to build their libraries before we state how "wrong" those systems went.

I got 2 games (besides Nintendoland) and have downloaded 3 more... so 3.82 is about right for me.
