Wii Sales Down 21% In A Single Year

Kotaku: Could the huff finally be running out of Nintendo's recent puff? As far as the current generation of hardware is concerned, it certainly looks that way.

Nintendo released its annual fiscal report today, and perhaps the most interesting finding is that hardware sales for both the Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS are down, in the Wii's case significantly, from the previous year.

The story is too old to be commented.

"Before you get too doomy and gloomy, though, bear this in mind: even though sales are down, this was still Nintendo's third-best year ever."

Yup massive drop in sales but still record setting profits. Oxymoron or just Nintendo ;)

When a "down" year is still your third most profitable're doin' something right.

I've been thinking the same thing. It amazes me how people want to spin a company making over 2B$ as being a negative.

I mean ok, I get it profits dropped, but a company making such astronomical profits only has one place to go lol.
