It's been an amazing year for Nintendo. Forget that the Nintendo DS is the number-one selling videogame system, and concentrate on the fact that the Nintendo Wii is still really hard to find in stores despite a healthy number of units being manufactured on a monthly basis. In short, it appears as though the world has gone Wii-mad. And it's far from a case of just the core gamer getting involved here. Nintendo's "risky" attempt to net non- and casual gamers into its Remote-swinging grasp has been a massive success.
