Nintendo has responded to the latest sales figures after selling more than 2 million Wii consoles and 1.5 DS systems. Records were broken according to the response.
"In November alone, Nintendo represented 198 percent of industry growth over 2007. Nintendo systems represented 66 percent of all hardware sales in November, including 59 percent of all console sales and 79 percent of all portable hardware sales."

man, and i don't even have a Wii yet my daughter doesn't even want one when i asked her if she wanted one for Christmas o_O
Nintendo's fairly gracious to respond this way. If I were a company and my product did that well, my response would be more along the lines of "My competition is going to need a bigger boat."
Does anyone care? So you raped and pillaged everything again... Big deal. I think we are all used to getting raped by Nintendo. @Captain_Sony Nope, I have a Wii. I don't have many games for it. Nights Journey of Dreams House of the Dead 2 and 3 Resident Evil 4 Resident Evil: UC Monkey Ball: BB Zak and Wiki Ghost Squad Metroid Prime 3 Smash Bros. Brawl The memory on my Wii is actual full because I've Downloaded about 30 games. However, it's my least favorite of the 3 consoles. I have purchased 3 Wii's. One for myself, one for my brother and one for my girlfriend. So I'd say that I've spent a pretty penny on Nintendo. I'm favorable towards the Xbox 360. Click on my profile and examine through my gamer card how many games I've played.
I doubt a single penny of your ever went to any of their products.. Something tells me you're a Sony only gamer and always have been.. I am not sure what makes me think that though.. The jealousy,bitterness, or avi.. However I am sure that had it been PS3 sitting at 2m it would be a very big deal to you. I will give you props for at least being in the right area.. The gamer zone just isnt for anyone but gamers so it is nice to see someone keeping themselves out of an area they clearly dont belong.
@Captain_Sony It would be a big deal if Sony Sold 2 million PS3 in a month. Nintendo on the other hand has been number one since it launched the Wii, month after month. One has to accept that Nintendo rules this generation. I don't know if it's even fun to see these numbers. As I said before, I think we are all used to getting raped by Nintendo.
You say you're being raped by Nintendo, yet you bought three Wiis. Aren't you kind of bringing this on yourself? Unless of course, Nintendo forced you to buy the Wiis. Then I would consider it rape.
"I would type a response but I'm having trouble seeing the keyboard thru all these piles of money."
yeah lol. wtf are they spending all the money on? oo yeah right its japanese peeps... problably some hentai tentacle porn
Wii is destined to be the most succesful videogame console ever. Hopefully the quality of its games will also increase dramatically in the next few years. C'mon Nintendo, where are the new I.P's and the classic, AAA games? At least the third-party situation is looking so much better in 2009, with great games like Madworld, Conduit, Sin & Punishment 2, Monster Hunter 3, Fatal Frame 4, Muramasa: Demon Blade and more!
Dude that is such a sad post...I bet you dont even see it.. Where are all the new ip's Nintendo? Where are the old games Nintendo?? Oh well we do get Madworld(NEW IP),Conduit(NEW IP),Punch Out(Classic IP(hint: that means old)), Sin and Punishment(old IP). Maybe it's just me but you seem to have gotten what you were asking for but didnt notice.. Just seemed very sad.
that the only nintendo title you listed was punch out and thats not really what he was talking about. I mean I think we can all agree that a new Zelda would be amazing. I was just reading the guide to Twilight Princess yesterday (yeah... I'm that cool) and remembering jsut how fun that game was...
he mentioned Sin and Punishment 2 aswell It takes time to get old ip's out but i dont see how people can not say Nintendo has had new ip's this gen unless they want all their new ip's to be carboncopy fps. There has been many new ip's this gen for Nintendo.
...are you tracking me just to disagree with me LOL. Anyway, I guess Sin and Punishment counts but I don't really think of it as a Nintendo IP. Meanwhile please don't try and justify Nintendo's new ip's this year (wii fit and wii music, no thankyou. Last gen Nintendo came up with new IPs like Pikmin (amazing game), this generation we get... well i think I have said enough
Im not tracking you dont flatter yourself..i read alot of Nintendo news and i was somewhat disagreeing with Vortigaunt since i thought half of what he said was good and the other not so much.
can you imagine there bank accounts OMGWTFBBQ, i have a wii and never play it maybe im part of the problem just buy a wii just to try it out then realize its just a fad and never really play it again but hey thats me the kids dont play it anymore either its all about LBP or pain for them
So what is it that you're saying exactly? Maybe you're part of what problem? The problem that they're selling so many Wiis? Let's say that you bought it last month. Let's adjust the number from 2,000,000 less your one Wii down to 1,999,999. Yeah, you're right. You were a big part of the problem.
"NIntendo rubs vaseline on their c..k and says to MS and especially SOny" "Dont you worry its gonna hurt just a little in beginning"
nintendo wins lololol
While I don't personally enjoy the Wii= Zelda was awesome or DS= 2 player Mario Kart I love the fact that Nintendo is greatly expanding the video game market and getting a ton of new people involved. I started out with Nintendo/Atari and now millions of other people are getting that same opportunity
I expected more fanboyish comments here, The comments on the sony & M$ responses to the npd are full of amusing comments. I guess when the Wii sells more consoles than the 360, ps3 and psp combined, theres not much to say. I guess I'll enjoy the civility here, while I can.
innovation wins. just take your time making the wii2 really special with two more new innovation, hd and same price and its a done deal for 2011
sorry motion sensers was here long ago even ps2 had it
