First 6 months of 2010: 6.8m
Last 6 months of 2010: 11.3m
2010 Total: 18.1m

First 6 months of 2011: 4.5m (66% of 2010)
Est last 6 months of 2011: 8.5m (75% of 2010, assuming price reduction allows Wii to remain a little higher than the first half year's YoY reduction)
2011 Total: 13m

LTD at end of 2011: 96.2m.

Give or take a couple million and there still no chance it will break 100m in 2011.

I'd bet in first 6mos of 2012 it will break 100m.

too high on your last 6 months of 2011 estimation, about 5M-6M I say.

History suggests that last 6mos (holiday time frame) shows a nearly 100% jump in sales.

This year is strangest of all, a sidden drop, rather than small drops each year.

What do you mean? Since 2008's peak the Wii has had rather normal annual drops.


3M drop each year till now it seems to be about 6M now the way it's going or 7M.

 

Console 1st yr 2nd yr % chg 3rd yr % chg 4th yr % chg 5th yr % chg 6th yr % chg
PS2 5.61 16.07 286.5% 21.29 132.5% 19.76 92.8% 16.19 81.9% 18.78 116.0%
Wii 2.93 16.39 559.4% 24.36 148.6% 21.44 88.0% 18.07 84.3% 13 71.9%

 

7th yr % chg 8th yr % chg 9th yr % chg 10th yr % chg
13.66 72.7% 11.09 81.2% 8.93 80.5% 6.06 67.9%

Comparing Wii to PS2, it seems right in line, (with the exception of PS2's odd jump in 6th year, however, that is inline with its 7th year and same rate of decline). However, that jump in its 7th year may allow PS2 to remain higher in the long run.


7th year I expect about 8M, so about 100M towards endof 2012 sounds about right.

Surely before the end of 2012, unless Ninty decides to definitively kill it stopping production before it reaches that goal. If Ninty supports it, it could still reach 120-130M before its end of life.

They won't kill production before 2015. It'll keep selling a few million each year just like PS2 for awhile.



Aww.. I was hoping to see CaptainObvious say: "When it sells 100 million consoles!!"



Going off of Nintendo's projection for shipments to reach 99 million by next march I'll say sell through should reach 100 million either in late Q2 or early Q3 in calendar year 2012.

In this case more than 120M lifetime should be quite sure.

Will be quite a achievement, First Nintendo console to hit 100M and 39M gap between 1st and 2nd.

Stop ruining these threads Nintendogamer, nobody cares for your annoying pessimism. Least of all having the nerve to correct others predictions when yours are so god awful.

I predict In Q3 2012, Q2 if Nintendo have correctly forecast thsi time.
