"Signs are showing that sales of the Nintendo Wii have begun to plateau and even decline slightly, following its meteoric popularity over the past 3 years. Beginning this March 2009, sales of the Wii console began to dropby as much as 17% when compared with the same period a year previously. Keep in mind that Nintendo is still selling a LOT of Wii consoles, just not as many as it did a year ago. The massive profits that the company has reaped from its Wii and DS machines means that Nintendo is flush with cash that it has been able to pump into an accelerated R&D program for a console that analysts are calling the Wii HD."
