I think the new KH and DQ will give the DS a boost in Japan. Good numbers though.

Nintendo sure got lucky with the Wii and DS.

Lucky? How about making good decisions and good management.

How do you mean? They did make a lot of excellent choices but the majority thought that the PS3 and PSP would completely eliminate Nintendo.

Are you suppossed to be bragging? Surely if more people could afford the ps3 it would get good sales? Is that not what you want?

that the I phone has more available memory than the wii... i dont know who came up with the idea for wii in the nintendo department by releasing a console with such low specs with beasts like x360 and ps3 around the corner... but they clearly knew what they were doing ... kudos to nintendo
