In an interview with Reuters, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata described Wii U’s year-end sales as “not bad.”

“At the end of the Christmas season, it wasn’t as though stores in the U.S. had no Wii U left in stock, as it was when Wii was first sold in that popular boom. But sales are not bad, and I feel it’s selling steadily,” Iwata told Reuters.

Iwata specifically stated how releasing two models simultaneously—the 8GB basic and the 32GB deluxe—presented a challenge for the company, as well as consumers.

“It was the first time Nintendo released two models of the game console at the same time … and I believe there was a challenge with balancing this. Specifically, inventory levels for the premium, deluxe package was unbalanced as many people wanted that version and couldn’t find it.”
