No one expected the Wii U version of Call of Duty: Ghosts to light the sales charts on fire. Yet it’s still quite disappointing to see that the game sold horribly in the US last month compared to other platforms.

Reliable NPD leaker “creamsugar” has shared information indicating that Call of Duty: Ghosts on Wii U accounted for less than 1% of the game’s total sales. Wii U’s share came in at 0.33% for the month of November, followed by the Xbox One with 6.42%, PlayStation 4 with 7.39%, PlayStation 3 with 30.42%, and Xbox 360 with 55.45%.

Again, Ghosts wasn’t expected to be a major sales success on Wii U. But given its apparent poor sales, you have to wonder if Activision will even bother bringing out next year’s Call of Duty for Nintendo’s console.

Several months ago, Nintendo announced its goal to sell 9 million Wii U units by the end of the 2014 fiscal year ending March 31. That’s always seemed like a lofty target given the system’s poor sales since launch, but it would now seem more difficult than ever to achieve.

IGN estimates that Wii U sales stand at about 4.3 million units worldwide to date. In order to hit 9 million, Nintendo would need to sell between 1.1 and 1.2 million consoles starting this month up through March.

EEDAR VP of Insights Jesse Divnich spoke with IGN about the Wii U sales – specifically competition from other new consoles, and how Nintendo’s own games may improve the system’s fortunes slightly. Divnich also said another price drop will likely take place again “once conditions are right”.

Nintendo has issued a response to the latest NPD report, revealing some fairly impressive sales for its two primary systems and games.

Hardware sales for Nintendo platforms are up by 100 percent over the month prior, the company says. The 3DS family sold roughly 770,000 units, bringing the handheld’s lifetime sales past 10 million to nearly 10.5 million units in the US. Wii U sales also rose by more than 340 percent over sales in October.

Notable software sales include Pokemon X/Y at 225,000 units (lifetime 2.35 million units), Zelda: A Link Between Worlds at 280,000 units (405,000 with the Zelda 3DS XL bundle), and Super Mario 3D World at 215,000 units.
