60 million, yeah baby yeah!! Next up we have to see if it will outsell the PS2.

What? Wii is less than halfway of beating PS2,  140 million so far they've sold, but Wii will top NES for sure before xmas.

I think some time in the future the Wii will outsell the PS2 not before Christmas, but I am certain that this will happen some day.

 

No later than 2015 I think but DS will outsell PS2 is 2011 sometime, It's selling like crazy still and the DSi XL is yet to come.

I'm not sure Wii will reach PS2, there are so many unknowns...but DS will probably reach 150m before the end of FY 2010.

60m is a great number, it will soon become the third best selling console of all time (PS2>PS1>Wii right?).

And I don't think Nintendo will launch a new console if Wii continues with this numbers, even if it has no HD and hardware of 2002.

Wii should top PS1 in 2012 I'de say, it could do 88 million end of 2011 at the most if it sells a good 200,000 a week or a lot of weeks.   DS I see selling like news papers for a long time.

88 millions at the end of 2011?? That would be bad for Nintendo, it means in 2 years the Wii would be able to just sell 28millions.

Probably that is the low end for 2011, i would say everything less than 95m is bad for the Wii considering its current trend.

IMO next year the Wii will reach 81-82 millions and the year after hopefully over 100millions.

For the end of 2009 probably the Wii will be at 63-64 millions so for me it's not impossible to sell 36 million consoles in 2 full years, especially with all the great games and things Nintendo can make.

I just heard somewhere that this guy thinks Wii could only sell like 13 million in 2010 and less in 2011, but he sounds a bit pessimistic. End of 2009 I hoped wii to sell no less than 62 million and end of 2010, Wii to sell no less than 73 million or they could sell lot more if it sells better in 2010 than this year.  IF Wii does sell what Nintendo is hoping it to do,  we could see Wii topping 100 Million in the first half of 2012, while DS is so far ahead with about 170 million sold, a lot.  End of 2011 95 million you say? even if it does about 90 million it's not a big disaster, it will be the first Nintendo console to sell so much.

The Wii is the first console to win over non gamers so I think it's in good stead to sell more and overtake the PS2.

We are speaking of winner and successful consoles, and them have to be compared to succesful consoles. Sure even if Wii stopts selling after having overpassed NES sales it would however be an extremely successful console; but this year, considered a bad year for Wii by many people, it's gonna selling 20m according to Nintendo. I think next year it will be able to do as much or more, considering all the great games are coming. 90 millions is not a disaster, but it's the low end for Wii's and Nintendo power: if all is right next year we should see at least two of the big three titles from Nintendo, plus some games for the new audience like Vitality Sensor, and many other surprires; and NSMBW and Wii Fit Plus just launched, they'll bring new people (pretty much all multi million sellers have this effect) to Wii. Wii has the possibility to have a great year in 2010 (bigger than 2008?) and even if it's better than 2009 it could still be near or above 20m. Speaking of 2011 is difficult but 15 millions seems very little to do right now, especially because of Dragon Quest X in Japan (if FFXIII will sell 500k new PS3s I think DQX can have a similar or bigger effect for Wii).

Like it or hate it the Wii will hit a 100 millions somehow.

I don't think we should be worried about wii not selling for a while now.  Once they pass NES sales they should continue to sell well, and way over 100 million in the future and then topping PS1.  If wii sells as much as 2009 or more then it's not all that bad, meaning it will sell over 75 million which is pretty good but I think they will sell a tad more in 2010 because NSMBwii will likely give them a slight boost now and then.  Super mario galaxy and metroid other m are probably the big games of 2010 for Wii and will keep the wii glowing for a while longer untill 2011 which likely zelda Wii will make an appearances. 

I beleive the Wii vitality sensor could be bigger than most of use think, it could pull a wii fit, they loved yoga, maybe they like relaxing too. Nintendo haven't said much about it so maybe they are planning a suprise.   I think Nintendo will be happy if they sell at least 18 million in their fiscal year, since it's not far off 20 million anyway.  another load in 2011 will be needed.  I reckon DQX will boost wii sales in Japan by quite a long shot, over 100,000 for sure, unless it gets ported to PS3 like most people are thinking.

And they are making a profit off of every one, those greedy bastards!

Why couldn't they do the decent thing and subsidize the system for gamers?



A flashy-first game is awesome when it comes out. A great-first game is awesome forever.

Perhaps when Nintendo release a press statement confirming DS and Wii have become their best selling systems yet, some of the negative media hype will die down?

Bah, who am I kidding, they'll throw in the usual crap about Wii having had a terrible year and DS being obsolete compared to the iTouch.

I think they will just agree that Nintendo has done very well but they wont admit it,  they will cover it up with random excuses.  Even if When wii tops 80 million and DS tops 160 million they will say they have failed this gen.  Strange times.

Something like this no doubt:

"Nintendo has announced that shipments of the Wii have topped 80 million units.  Sadly, only 2 million of those units were purchased by true gamers and the other 78 million by teh casualz and grandmaz!!"
