Nintendo’s quarter two financial report has been released, revealing strong profits for the past three months, improved Wii U sales, and declining 3DS sales. Nintendo has also released the lifetime hardware and software numbers for Wii U and 3DS. As of September 30, Wii U has sold 7.29 million and 3DS has sold 45.42 million. Wii U software sales total 41.67 and 3DS has sold 186.22 pieces of software. This means the average Wii U owner has around six games for the console, while the average 3DS owner only has about four. However, the software – hardware relationship is hard to gauge for handhelds as many have upgraded to new models, skewing the number of actual owners.
