Nintendo Co. expects to sell as many as 35 million Wii video-game consoles in the U.S., close to the record 38.2 million PlayStation 2 players sold by Sony Corp.
we will see, no games will surely equal a drop in sales eventually, I could see this being gamecube 2
or maybe it will be the ps3 that ends up like the gamecube ;) The sales are speaking for them self.
Ye and the PS3 will sell 20 million this year. Hey nintendo wheres your 3rd party games?
For a console that is NOT even ONE year old. Couple questions for Nintendo? 1. Do you anticipate the Wii to compete with the 360 and PS3 when they hit mass-market prices? 2. Do you anticipate the Wii to compete graphically when the 360 and PS3 hits full stride? Since 2012 is only 5 years away, I anticipate Nintendo having another console by then ... announcement 3 years from now. Why, because I don't think Nintendo could say yes to the following questions above.
bold indeed but you have to admit that they are on cloud 9 right now. With the track record they have from 2 gens ago... doesn't seem likely but with the track record it does have with this gen alone .. it does seem like they could do it.
It's possible, but I seriously doubt the WII will have that much life. But it's very possible...
mmm... we have to wait and see... Will people still be going nutz over the wiimote? Or will games such as Mario 10,11,12,13,15... or Metroid 7,8,9,10... be AAA titles? Time will tell.
Well I'm not sure if they could make 5 awesome Mario games in 5 years along with 4 sweet Metroid games in the same. Every system has there go to franchises, Sony with GT, MS with Halo, and Nintendo with Mario. It doesn't mean that's all they make. I'm sure they have a slew of new IP's and 3rd parties are warming up to Wii
imagine how bad its gonna look in a couple of years. its a fad imo, a good fad for nintendo as it makes alot of money but fad nonetheless. saying that the type of person who loves wii is definitely not me so i'm not really qualified to guess at whats gonna happen
Here's how Mario plans on making Wii Sell! in pic below lol!
I figure the Wii will sell 12-13 million by yrs end. I feel a new Wii will pop up around 2009. By then I expect the Wii to have over 24 million units sold.
