Analysts now predict that the Nintendo Wii will have moved over 26 million units before the financial year ends.
By time, when most people have hdtv, Wii will not survive but have to give kudos to nintendo for going this strong all the time.
missed the article about people Enjoying Wii-games more on a BIGGER screen? Apparently these people couldn't give a crap wether its HD or not
So that's a slowdown in sales if you go by 20 million sold already.
Oops not total sales since launch but sales for that year.
No the article is saying 26 million Wii systems will be sold this year alone which i can agree with. The Wii sold almost that many with supply constraints in one year. 23 million in one year is possible.
more than that surely
well at the rate it's selling...it seems it will be higher unless the hype machine suddenly breaks down..
may not know the appeal but i will breakdown and get one when they make Skies of Arcadia 2 which is an awesome rpg other than that rpg i dont want the wii or its games, maybe fire emblem lol
The Nintendouche Pii could sale 1 billion consoles for all Shane Kim cares,it still sucks,crappy harware and games,but it doesn't suck as much as the Xbox 360,that console takes suckage to a whole new level,the only true next-gen console is of course PLAYSTATION®3. $hane
Mine has been sitting there collecting dust for the past 8 months and i still havent bought a game for it yet.
Thats kinda funny. Fanboys are hilarious when you look at this thing as a whole. Its like everyone online is practicing to become a PR rep. Bubbles though, that made me laugh
I say more...could any guy on Earth (except me) own a Wii, it still SUCKS!!!!!
For rereleasing the Gamecube for $250 with a pointer.
Why do people never say a XBOX with a pointer? The wiis hardware is closer to it that the gamecube
It could sell way more.
Unbelievable! I would have never guessed it would do this well.
the ps2 still sells too. lower prices will move units
I can see it now, the Wii sells 50 gazillion units in 2009. And PS3/360 owners still don't care because it didn't have GTA IV, Gears of War 2, MGS4, Gran Turismo 5, Final Fantasy XIII, God of War III, Alan Wake, Fable 2, Killzone 2, Resistance 2, Call of Duty 6, Far Cry 2, and hundreds and hundreds of other HD games. Yes, I can actually predict the future.
26 million. sounds just about right to me. Shaka2K6 maybe you should buy a game or two. you might just enjoy it. Or maybe you are just a Sony or MS fanboy and wanted to flame this article.
Could you imagine if they dropped the price to $150, different colours and bundled games like SSBB and Galaxy with it. They could sell 30m plus and end the console race this year. They would have to increase production massivly though which I do not think is easy to do as it is selling faster than any other console in history.. Yeah thats right , history.
It will probably sell more after nintendo fiscal year. Congrats to nintendo for taking the risk. Good things with this sell is that we will have more games from now on (bad or good, just a matter of taste)
so called analyst...they should look at vgchartz....wii is going to pass 26 million.
