Nintendo Co Ltd said it would launch a successor to its ageing Wii game console in 2012 as it struggles to win back users from rivals Microsoft and Sony and seeks to reverse a slump in profits.

Nintendo said on Monday that it expects profits to remain almost flat in the current financial year, despite the launch of its much-touted 3D-capable handheld games device, whose sales in Japan have been overshadowed by the devastating March 11 earthquake.

Waiting for the new Zelda/Mario/Metroid etc...


I would play mine more, but the lack of HDMI is a major drawback. I have to use a capture card since I don't have a television.

In North American, the 360 has been outselling the Wii for most of the past year but the Wii has still been selling more than the PS3.

360 was the only console to see a year-over-year increase in sales whereas the Wii has been falling off for two years now

You need to average in the fact that Xbox 360s were previously manufactured to break and a high amount of its users bought another Xbox 360 if not covered by the extended RROD warrenty Microsoft gave. I haven't heard of Wii's breaking.

True, but now the new Wii will have touch screens that break from rage quitting. I wonder how much the controller is going to cost.
