"The Wii U has been out for almost two years now, and sales of the console have been quite disappointing. Because of the low sales, we haven’t seen much support from third party publishers. And while Nintendo’s own first games have been quite successful on the Wii U, there has yet to be a big third party hit on the console.
But it looks like there’s light at the end of the tunnel. Last week, Nintendo announced in their quarterly earnings that they company finally made a profit for the first time in many quarters. And they also revealed that the Wii U had sold 7.3 million consoles to date. (By comparison, The PlayStation 4 has been out for just one year, and it has sold over 13 million units.)"
