I wonder what there profits will be like when there next system comes out. I really don't think they will sell nearly as many as they did the Wii because all those casual gamers and old people who bought the system, played wii sports, then let it sit on their shelf to collect dust will most likely not invest in a new system. At least I don't think they will.

This don't count accessory like Wii Fit or Wii MotionPlus.

2x (up to 4x) Wii MotionPlus per Wii.

Lost on Wii Sale will be compensate by MotionPlus sale.

Yup, Wii colors soon and I just read a article that Japan has a black one out but has no plans to ship it to the USA, until now. LOL

No Internet? Are you sure or are you just drunk?

You know the sales of a games console isn't and has never been directly correlated to power of it's graphics chip so by posters like jstall and Soldier37 should read up on their video game history then come back and post.

The downturn in turnover on the Nintendo Wii isn't a major surprise, all of the consoles have been effected (something that should have been mentioned in this article) by the recession (so much for the argument that the video game industry is recession proof). It's not like less people are buying Wii's and are buying 360's and PS3's instead, again just look at the numbers.

Nintendo will bounce back, their one of the video games industries 'great survivors'. Go Mario!

What a narrowminded view you have. Obviously since the PS3 has less support it must be superior to the 360. Wouldn't True Gaming Platform mean the platform with the most gaming choices available?

I think we also have to consider the drop in sales must be partly due to the Wii selling so well in the first place. I'm sure the majority of people who really want a Wii already have one and its unlikely they will purchase the console again.

True that. I waited a couple years before buying my Wii. Basically I waited until stores were keeping them in stock, and I only needed the one. Except for a handful of people waiting for a price drop, can't imagine too many more are going to sell. They'll always be a decent trickle of sales (as seen with continued PS2 sales), but the initial buy-in is over.

I think demand is slowing because most people who wanted a Wii finally got one ^_^. Unlike it's rivals Nintendo earns money on every unit it sells rather than loosing money. Now Nintendo's job is to get consumers to buy other games for it which may be a challenge since so many are happy with just wii sports and wii fit.
