Wii is dead. One game release is not going to change that. The only hope Square has of extending the life of the game for that period of time is to make sure the Wii U version sells well and keeps people interested. I don't know how subscription MMO's fare in Japan, but over here in the West they are floundering. Even WoW is dying off. Everything is going free-to-play just to stay alive.


I wouldn't call the Wii dead, considering the hardware is still selling over 50K a week, nor would I say that there's only one game left to release with selling potential.

For example: Just Dance 4 will sell at least 8 million copies. 

The Wii is more alive than certain other recent platforms.

I think he's talking about Wii's situation in Japan, so he's correct. There's no more games announced for release there, either 1st or 3rd party... DQX was probably one of the, if not the last game to ever be released for the Wii there.

Don't forget that Wii U is releasing there this year, so Wii will be dead in Japan when 2013 starts. Nintendo will need to focus on the Wii U, as Wii is irrelevant now.

Bets with Conegamer:

Pandora's Tower will have an opening week of less than 37k in Japan. (Won!)
Pandora's Tower will sell less than 100k lifetime in Japan.
Stakes: 1 week of avatar control for each one.
