Even if the Wii stops being in production the games will sell for a bit longer like the GC games did. Plus the gamecube was less that half of what the Wii has been so it should be a bit longer. Backwards compatibility will help quite a bit as well. You could be right with that 3-5 years thing. Nintendo still needs to make the Wii have a permanent price reduction to 70-99 dollars as well. So it has a ways to go. I think it was 89 dollars this black friday at Walmart. So they are obviously making money at that price.
