Nintendo Forecasts 35 Million Wii Units in U.S. by 2012

Nintendo of America Senior Vice President of Marketing and Corporate Communication George Harrison has boldly predicted sales of more than 35 million Wii consoles in the United States by 2012. So far, over 2.5 million Wiis have been sold; monthly Wii sales surpassed Sony PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 sales over the past four months. Harrison confirmed Nintendo is increasing production at factories in China because of the high demand. "Demand is much greater than we anticipated. A year ago no one thought we would be in this position," Harrison said. While the company confirmed that there are no immediate price cuts on the horizon, Nintendo also does not have any plans on upgrading the hardware used in the Wii.
