What are the chances that we'll EVER see a WiiU exclusive in the Top 10 NPD? Not saying I was expecting it last month, but I dunno...

That said, NPD has lost some of its relevance. Not counting digital software (or even all retailers) really puts some of this into question (though I wonder just by how much).

How is NSMB2 in the top 10!?
@Shaanyboi Seeing as the only consoles with exclusives on the top 10 have a much larger install-base I don't think we will see any anytime soon. Maybe/probably by the end of this year if Nintendo has something big in store for the wii U like they had for the 3DS in its first year. (they had Super mario 3D land and mario kart from november to december, i imagine Nintendo will have some big titles for the wii U as well)

Wii U Hardware Sales Surpass Wii Sales by More Than $30 Million through First Six Weeks

With more than 460,000 units sold in December, Wii U has now sold nearly 890,000 units in the United States after only 41 days on the market, according to the NPD Group. To date, Wii U hardware sales have generated more than $300 million in the U.S. alone; Wii hardware had generated just more than $270 million at the same point in its lifecycle.

“While the Wii launch established new benchmarks in the United States, Wii U has surpassed its predecessor in perhaps the most important category: revenue generation,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “The demand for the Deluxe SKU, which was essentially sold out at retail this holiday, and the strong attach rate of New Super Mario Bros. U, shows that we have the value and the games to drive momentum in 2013. We look forward to offering great new experiences and bringing smiles to millions of new faces throughout the year.”

Nintendo sold more than 2.65 million hardware units in the United States in the month of December. 2012 marked the 11th consecutive year that Nintendo has sold at least 8 million hardware units in the U.S. Other Nintendo sales milestones achieved in December 2012 and beyond that time frame, include:
