Nintendo debuts combined retail and digital sales for Wii U

Gamasutra: "In a first out of one of the three major games hardware manufacturers, Nintendo has released a blended sales chart which combines U.S. sales figures from digital as well as brick-and-mortar retail." (Nintendo, Wii U)

Super Mario U 770,000 in the US alone. That didn't surprise me.

Half of the titles are digital download games.

That is pretty sad to be honest as far as when you go to a store and look at the Wii U section.

Why is it sad?
To me it seems like the digital distribution is doing good.

Why is it sad that something people expected to do poorly is doing so well?

This is good and all , but we dont have said sales numbers except for mario , only mentions that it include digital versions and titles .

Being 3rd in a top 10 is irrelevant if you are doing 30k for a retail/digital title . i'm not saying that's what's happening , but without any context .. it's useless

Tank Tank Tank was converted to a freemium game on the eshop- you download part of it for free and buy additional dlc content- I am sure that is why it is on the list as the retail version did poorly-

Megaman X I think was one of the .30 cents games as well

Trine was on the eshop at launch day 1 (or very close)

looking at the list I do not see how it could be a top 10 cumulative sales list- Zombi U and Nintendoland would be on it if it was cumulative

There it is.
I wish there were some numbers though
