Wait, what part of that were you referring too. From how I understood it, it sounds like people inside the company thought the wii u would piggyback off the wii u, but Kimishima disagreed.

In an internal sales representative meeting, someone projected that we would sell close to 100 million Wii U systems worldwide. The thinking was that because Wii sold well, Wii U would follow suit. I said that, since the Wii had already sold so well, we need to clearly explain the attraction of the Wii U if we are to get beyond that and sell the new system, and that this would be no easy task.
