After 3 years on the market, Nintendo’s Wii U has finally crossed the 10 million units sold mark. This milestone comes in the wake of the semi announcement of the new console being worked on at Nintendo, code named the NX, and in the wake of booming sales for the PS4 and Xbox One.

This news came Nintendo’s consolidated sales report which was released today, July 29th. While the system’s sales have picked up in the recent months due to the release of big titles like Mario Kart 8, Splatoon, and the upcoming release of Mario Maker, the sales as a whole have been a massive disappointment for Nintendo. Usually a console life cycle lasts about 6 years or so, but it looks like the Wii U’s life will be cut drastically short due to the lack of enthusiasm by the general public.

There is no word on when the new Nintendo NX will release, but may people are speculating that it could hit shelves as soon as summer 2016.
