Nintendo sold more consoles last quarter

Nintendo exeeded its expectations of financial results for the first quarter of its fiscal 2016 today, and it credits both the 3DS and Wii U for that. The gaming company revealed that it has sold 1.01 million 3DSes and 470,000 Wii U systems during the three-month period from April through June. And both consoles also had a strong quarter in terms of software sales. 3DS game sales surpassed 7.92 million units while Wii U did 4.55 million.

That’s a hugely impressive number for Wii U considering its install base is only at 10 million while the 3DS’s is more than 50 million.
