Post Wii Needs 15 Million More Sales until next Console



Kotaku reports that Nintendo won’t discuss its next generation console until 15 million more Wii’s are sold according to Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime.

Reggie says Wii sales peaked in the system’s third full year and he proudly states that there are more than 30 million Wiis out there in America. He’s got a chart — he showed it at a business conference in New York yesterday — that shows the Wii is still selling faster than the the PlayStation 2, the juggernaut of the last generation of gaming consoles, did in the same amount of time. 23% faster, he says. Wii was and is a monster hit, no doubt about it. Nintendo was right this generation despite so many people thinking they were wrong.

But when a system’s sales slow, that’s a good time for gamers to expect the sequel. DS sales began to drag in Japan in the last year or so and, what do you know, we’ve got the very cool 3DS around the corner.

“As we sit here today we’re saying the Wii has many, many more units to sell,” he said today. “After we’ve reached an installed base of 45 million here in the U.S., we can have a conversation about the next generation. ”

I'm glad they're not making anything new just yet. They still haven't made my Wii worth buying by releasing any brilliant Pokemon games. :P PokePark Wii had potential but I heard it's not even multiplayer...

Danm... that fails...

IMO: Wii is only good for 2 things: Internet, and Brawl. those are the only thing that lets the Wii sale. IMO

Everyone knows that PS3 is only good for Netflix, and the 360 because of Reach and MWBO... That and Microsoft will probably releash theirs after Sony makes the PS4...
But if you look at it, PS3's motion thing is to combat the Wii and the 360's Kinect was to combat both of theres so one of them gotta give the new console out sooner or later.

I wish there were more mini-game like releases like they had in Stadium 1 and 2. Or maybe even a re-release of those games for the Wii bundled with several new mini games. Those were actually a lot of fun!

I think the reason that they sold more Wiis than they did PS2's is because when the PS2 came out there weren't as near as many people to buy them. :P

I still think Mario Kart Wii was the best game the Wii has released, next to Brawl. I haven't played New Super Mario Bros. and am probably forgetting about something... but eh. My opinion, at least. They haven't really made a good pokemon game for the Wii yet, unfortunately. What I'd like to see is a remake (of sorts) of Pokemon Snap. Is PokePark similar to that? I just saw it for the first time in Target the other day but didn't really pay much attention.

I have Mario Galaxy and Twilight Princess, too... Derp. I forgot about Galaxy since I haven't played it in about a year, and I was never much of a Zelda person.

I can't tell you how many hours my family has utterly spilled into Mario Kart Wii, but it must be in the high hundreds. The only thing I would change about that game is take out all of the boring Mario Circuit tracks and bring back some more the more interesting ones. I've grown to love using Yoshi on the Mach Bike.

As for the Wii, its not a bad console, but it just feels like its always missing something and just doesn't feel "complete." Sure, SSBB and Mario Kart Wii are awesome games, but we need more like that where there's a ton of variety, replay value, and many extras.

I for one would love to see a Pokemon game that's presented in a party-game like format and doesn't try to be only concerned with battling. And yeah, I remember those minigames from Stadium 1 & 2, and they were awesome. We need more like that.
