This is nice. Nintendo as of 2012 sold
61.91M Nintendo Entertainment System
49.10M Super Nintendo Entertainment System
32.93M Nintendo 64
21.74M Nintendo GameCube
95.85M Nintendo Wii
So if that downward spiral would have continued, the Wii should have sold more like 10+M units where it actually came close to 100M. Thats an impressive turnaround and looking at these numbers it totally makes sense to base the next console on the tremendous success of the Wii brand and call it WiiU. Still I think too many people might confuse it with a Wii periphical.
