Wii Successor Not Required in 2011
Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime made it clear in a recent interview with Kotaku that even though Nintendo has some serious competition in the casual game space now, they’ve still got several Wiis to sell.
“As we sit here today we’re saying the Wii has many, many more units to sell,” Fils-Aime said. “After we’ve reached an installed base of 45 million here in the U.S., we can have a conversation about the next generation.”
Because of that, Sir Reggibald is not dedicating to a Wii successor in 2011. Once the company has sold an acceptable amount of Wiis, then — and only then — will they start to talk about the next generation of hardware.
