Wii U sold well under 100,000 units in January

Bad news for Nintendo. Apparently, the Wii U isn't doing so hot. According to a report published on The Verge, the console has been experiencing extremely poor performance in the US; in the month of January, it sold "well under 100,000 units." It's a far cry from the 460,000 figures Nintendo boasted about in December, suggesting that demand spiked during the launch, and it has since fallen off considerably.

NPD, the analyst firm that originally released the report, reveals that this represents a 38% drop in sales when compared to the original Wii. Further, The Verge reveals that Gamasutra has estimated the actual figures to be somewhere between 45,000 and 59,000 consoles sold. Not only is that worse than the original Wii, it's actually worse than both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Ouch. 

What the Wii U seems to need here is a killer app, or several, as none yet seem to have cuaght the public's attention.
