Wii boosts Nintendo shares through the roof

As DS continues to sell well, shares in Nintendo have hit an all-time high ahead of the launch of its innovative new console Wii.
Shares in the platform holder have hit Y26,770 (around £120), as anticipation continues to rise ahead of the console's launch. The shares have soared 88 per cent since the start of calendar year 2006.

The latest news will come as a boost to Nintendo (and indeed its investors) as the company prepares to launch Wii in the US on November 19th, Japan on December 2nd and Europe on December 8th.

With a recently announced an increase in its global marketing spend, bringing the total figure up to £105.1 million, Nintendo seems to be building up a head of steam just as the peak Christmas season at retail starts to really kick off.

The story is too old to be commented.

That means if you bought about 14 shares of nintendo in January, and sold them now, you could get all 3 systems! If only I knew that earlier...

Nice to hear nintendo's doing well though.
