3 Million Strong….And Growing!
The current estimates from November 1st to December 25th show that the Nintendo Wii has sold 1.8 Million units in North America alone. Early reports out of Japan estimate that the big N has sold over 800k units of its innovative 5th console.
Currently it is highly likely that Nintendo has easily hit the 3 Million mark. With innovation, strong support from 3rd parties and an intuitive interface, it seems like the Wii is a success story that cannot be avoided. Game ON, and congratulations to Nintendo.

A New Year’s Surprise?
Here is a nice little rumor that I would like to pass onto the gaming public, Do you guys think that Nintendo is planning on ringing in the new year with a VC surprise? They did it with Christmas day, so why not New Years? I would definitely file this one under rumor but keep it on your radar ladies and gentleman.
