The Wii and the DS have both been selling like hotcakes, especially in the U.S. and Europe, but in Japan there is some concern that the market is already saturated. In fact, slowing Wii sales forced Nintendo to cut its annual Wii forecast for the first time, and the day after this happened Nintendo's stock dropped 12 percent. That said, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata, in his recent financial presentation, tried to alleviate investors' fears about Nintendo having already peaked.
"Nintendo's business has grown rapidly in the past three years. Can we maintain the size of the current business in the next fiscal year and beyond? Or, can we even expand the business in the years to come? These may be the questions that concern you most," he noted.
