Sony, Nintendo See Shares Slump

A combination of continuing global financial uncertainty, concerns over exports, and the weak dollar saw the Tokyo Stock Exchange suffer a 4.5 per cent fall today.

I'm no expert but I feel tat nintendo makes its money off periferals and such. i.e. wii fit pad and stuff like that. If wii fit bombs... They lose money. If they can't sell 4 controllers and 4 nunchuks and some classic controllers to people then... Well. Their big market will take a small hit. They have always been experimental. Virtual boy(Bombed hard), Power glove(Waste) they even had that big bazooka thing(SNES Days) that they used for like 2 games.... Might be why they took a hit... Tried something that failed. They can afford it though. I feel one of these days wii will become like the Dreamcast. not that it will fail or anything but the fad will drop hard and sales will become a crawl after people realize there are so few games they wanna play... Not that I am an expert but yeah. Demand wont be there forever. Its a cheap gimmick. Don't get me wrong I enjoy my wii a lot but I still feel this way...

I have that huge bazooka as a child I remember having a robot game for it.

It's kinda strange to see it happen to Nintendo shares considering huge and worldwide success of Wii and DS.
