Wii U sales dismal in SA

According to a report on htxt.africa, sales of the Wii U in South Africa have not been particularly great so far.

Analysts at Gfk, a retail sales data tracking and market research company, says that by the end of April 2013, less than 2,000 Wii U consoles had been sold in South Africa since its launch in November 2012.

This is contrasted with 50,000 Xbox 360 console sales over the same period.

Speaking to htxt, Kali Moahloli, Business Group Head at GfK TEMAX South Africa, said that “the gaming market overall is fairly weak at the moment.” This is due to high prices, a result of the weak Rand, and customers waiting to see what happens with the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, explained Moahloli.
