In June, Nintendo systems sold a combined 933,000 units, accounting for 50 percent of all gaming hardware units sold in the United States.
They seem very pleased, 933,000 why shouldn't they be.
And 6 of the top 10 games too. Good lord. :)
ww sold......i'd shit brix too
I'm surprised they still respond to these. If I was Ninty, I'd just stick my head out a door and yell "Yup, we're good. See you next month!"
I just don't get how they keep selling consoles? Who doesn't have one already?
We were asking the same thing about the PS2 when it hit 100mil years ago. We'll never figure these things out.
Ive talked to some people online, there are those who never had the chance to get a game console until recently. Either because they are too poor or were not allowed. When they do finnaly have the chance, then they go for the best thing thats not a handheld. The PS2. Unlikely that they can purchase an Next Gen console and have the money to own a HD tv.
^ Oh look at that, people dont seem to recognize that the poor really exist in the world. HOw sad.
kids. maybe the 'rents think they're old enough to have a wii in their room or somesuch. kids not sharing. saving up allowance. bored couples. stuff like that. no doubt alot of the ds' sold are replacements. i worked at gamestop for about 3 years, easily 80% of the ds' we sold were replacements. they were always getting broken or stolen from kids taking them to school and whatnot.
population of USA 300,000,000 million plus
population of the worl 6 billion turns out gaming isnt as big as we think
I have no idea how many kids are being born in the USA
nintendo is used to moving alot of units every month
The Wii Sucks.
And that's why it's 30-35 million ahead of everything else huh? :)
Just because you dont enjoy things that are fun..doesnt mean the Wii sucks..and if the Wii sucks it wouldnt be selling so well...and if you would just get your head out of your ass and grow a set..you might then realize that staying up late at night to masturbate to your HD graphics just isn't really that cool.
Just Imagine when the PS3 hits $199
Would sell a great amount, making the 360 not relevant for most core gamers but the casuals would still go for Wii.
Well I guess that answers my question on how well Nintendo been doing lately. Apparently well off as ever.
yeah codyodiodi wii does suck! its sucks up tons of gamers money for nintendo.it sucks up most of the consoles market share for nintendo.and it sucks up so called hardcore fanboy gamers tears as they cry about nintendo in the comment section of nintendo stories that has nothing to do with them but to make you look like big cry babys wha! wha! wha! keep crying online cause wii is really thirsty from winning the sales war and your online tears keep it and nintendo fans going during the hot days of summer.and keep coming up with stupid reasons for it selling so well it makes yinz look like super big loser babys and crying always puts smiles on our 75 million sold faces.so please keep up the tears wha! wha! wha!your system is out selling my so i'm going to cry wha! wha!
I totally agree with you, so called "Hardcore" and Graphics fans can cry cry and cry, and so what? we still will be happy with our wii's and good wii's games :P
