Nintendo expects combined sales of 10.5 million for Wii and Wii U by spring 2013

Nintendo is mum about how many units of the upcoming Wii U it could sell, but the company is revealing expectations for total sales of its two consoles.

Reportedly Nintendo predicts that it will move 10.5 million combined units of the Wii and Wii U between April 1, 2012 and March 31, 2013. As for software, the numbers stack up to 70 million copies across the two platforms.

Considering the Wii U doesn't launch until the holiday season, those figures allow a smaller window for the new console and its software. As a result, these projected sales numbers could be interpreted different ways.

Do you think the Wii U will be successful in its first few months of release?
