Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Wii will hit 100 million units sold the first week of January

Let us try this again.

 

Wii sales should double or come close to doubling this weeks sales over the next 3 weeks. Then there is one more half week in December as well. So I say by the time numbers come out a few days after the first of January,the wii will be at 100 million sold (vgchart numbers).

 

Also I will just throw it out there. Pass Ps1 by Christmas next year.Nintendo has nursed the DS longer than I thought, so we should at least have Wii numbers for two more years. Too cheap to pass up. 110 million should be an attainable goal before they discontinue it.

 

If anyone gets exact wii numbers when it is updated on vgchartz the first week of January I will give you sig and status control for a month.



 Bananaking was right, I was wrong. Like he always is. About the 3DS not selling at least 19.999 million in 2013...

Well it did push out 350 thous. About this last week. There will be much more all through Christmas plus more discounts. Usually lasts through January first. Should be right about there.

I say mid-february at the earliest and mid-march at the latest.

~300k next week, ~350k the week after, ~250k next, ~100k next = 1m from now until January 5th. So, no, it will be pretty far from it. Sales will drop like a rock to 50k soon in January and then even lower to 30-40k in February. I don't see it until next spring at the earliest.



Watch this space - counting down to the GOTG soon

so when does it pass 250M?

Early Spring, would be a miracle for it to sell that much within a few weeks.

Pretty sure Wii sales will collapse altogether once people get used to seeing the Wii-U and more games come out on it ;p.

I think it'll get to 99.5 before the end of this year. Which is too bad since sales will be terrible after January 1st, so somewhere in Februari it will be I guess. Overtaking PS1 is a given, and it will do it halfway through next year. It's only 4 million to go (102, VGC's 104 is incorrect). When discontinued, it'll be between 110m-120m. 120 easily if Nintendo gets around to publishing in other regions like Sony does.

Lol. I think Nintendo still has this secret stash of 150m units somewhere safe .
