The Wii U Deluxe model outselling the Basic model is evident that price isn’t causing problems for Wii U sales—it’s the notable absence of software, Iwata informed a CVG contributor.

“If the price is actually an issue [with Wii U], then there is some contradiction between the current sales balance between the Basic and Premium versions of the Wii U,” Iwata told CVG. “The basic version should have sold a lot, but the fact of the matter is that people are buying more of the premium version. So the issue is not there.”

The 8 GB Basic Wii U is priced at $299, while the 32 GB Deluxe set is priced at $350. But as Iwata stated, the issue isn’t price—it’s content.

“I understand that the real issue is the lack of software, and the only solution is to provide the mass-market with a number of quality software titles,” Iwata said.
