PoSTradamus has predicted this long ago and has stated that wii sales will eventually decline.

No sh!t... If I predicted that would you have quoted me? I also predicted that the ps2 sales would eventually decline

I love knee-jerk analysts.

I'm sure the Wii will be fine once the next Mario/ WiiParty/ whatever comes out.

I'll wait another month or so before assuming it's a trend.

after 3 month of it. just about every body i know let it collect dust agree or disgree

People who had a 360/ps3 let it collect dust. I had two friends who only had wiis, one let it collect dust after brawl but the other kept playing it til Christmas. They both have ps3s now one got it just last week(he was forced to since his wii was never used and he wants Killzone 2 and Resistance 2) the other got it just before Christmas(for LBP), one is now trying to sell his wii, the other(guy who got it for LBP) plays both but the ps3 far more.

Edit: It's not a big deal though, since most people probably have one, regardless of whether they use it or not and it is still outselling the others. Hope the ps3 overtakes it soon.

Japan may have been down 8 percent, but North America was up 87 percent. My guess is Nintendo shipped everything they had across the Pacific, maybe they're testing demand for another production increase? Regardless, with Deadly Creatures & House of Dead: Overkill hitting store shelves in the States this week Japan doesn't need any Wiis :)
