You certainly have to learn how to accept another persons opinion. You come and say for certain the Wii could do 3.6 million a month. Someone comes along and says they cant and automatically they hate the Wii and assume its a fad? That makes sense...

 Only too much if we were dealing with a normal console that appealed to only the standard market



 

Predictions:Sales of Wii Fit will surpass the combined sales of the Grand Theft Auto franchiseLifetime sales of Wii will surpass the combined sales of the entire Playstation family of consoles by 12/31/2015 Wii hardware sales will surpass the total hardware sales of the PS2 by 12/31/2010 Wii will have 50% marketshare or more by the end of 2008 (I was wrong!!  It was a little over 48% only)Wii will surpass 45 Million in lifetime sales by the end of 2008 (I was wrong!!  Nintendo Financials showed it fell slightly short of 45 million shipped by end of 2008)Wii will surpass 80 Million in lifetime sales by the end of 2009 (I was wrong!! Wii didn't even get to 70 Million)

 We've actually seen the Wii's demand, exceed that of any other console before, so saying it can't sustain its demand is baseless, its like saying that the Wii will slow down, what proof do you have?

@ Avinash_Tyagi, i do not think the wii is a fad. All i'm saying is it cant do 3.6 million a month. The DS comment i simply put in because i take every opportunity to show my huge affection towards the DS. I think you got it completely wrong. Deal with it. A big thanks goes out to Bladeneo who clearly is brimming with common sense and decency.

I don't think demand ould fall for ii if they had 3.6 million per month. They might not actually be able to SELL that much, but it won't drop the demand. Does the iPod stop selling gigantic numbers because I can walk into a store and buy one?

 Ipod took 3 years to sell over 10 million and since then has sold 109 million more in about three years, and yet DalekLord somehow believes Wii demand will be satiated in three months

Has the DS even done 3+ million a month before?

 Yup.  It will also do more than 3+ million this month.






Don't forget, there's untapped markets out there...like China... Maybe it could sustain a higher rate. But if I were Nintendo, I'd try to keep it around the level of the DS unless it was still selling out. They seem to have figured out the demand for the DS.
