Wired’s interview with Nintendo’s Cammie Dunaway has raised eyebrows on the Internet, as Dunaway admits expectations for Wii sales in 2010 will be lower than 2009.
Why is this surprising? I would think eyebrows would be raised is she predicted them to go up. Wii is in its 4th year of sales, and at $199, it isn’t likely that anyone who has been saving up for a Wii hasn’t bought it yet. Mario, Metroid and Zelda (all with new titles coming out this year) have all had Wii titles, so those who buy the console for one of these popular titles already have it. Take a breath, Inter-webs!
