Wii U selling 1.2 games per console

According to Longbow Research's James Hardiman, the Wii U has been achieving an attach rate of 1.2 games sold per system. That tidbit is based on NPD data gathered in the US last month. The Wii saw a rate of two titles sold for every console when it launched in 2006.

So why have buyers been purchasing fewer Wii U games compared to Wii? Hardiman believes that consumers may not be inclined to pick up another game due to Nintendo Land's inclusion in the Deluxe set, or the price tag of the Wii U is dissuading them from spending extra cash on releases.

Does this 1.2 figure take into account what people download off the eshop.
