no way wii is going under 10k, but it does look like it'll settle at 20k this year for most of the year instead of 40k. and thats awful. console business in japan is straight up dried up right now. pretty soon wii/ps3/360 could have combined sales of under 40k a week in japan.
the monster hunter port, wii sports restort, and monster hunter 3 can't come soon enough for wii in japan.
i could also see nintendo releasing new colors in japan this year and a price cut either this fall or early next year.
end of '08 predictions: wii - 43 million, 360 - 25 million, ps3 - 20 million
Games I've beat recently: Super Mario Galaxy, Knights of the Old Republic, Shadow of the Collossus
