WiiWare: Smaller Companies Welcome

Kotaku - February 22, 2008


Submitted by ItachiItachi (463) at 9:34AM PST on February 22, 2008


Nintendo dropped us a line to clear up a bit of misconception in our write up of WiiWare from Wednesday. They aren't just looking for games from small teams from big-name developers - in fact, a good number of upcoming WiiWare titles are from up and coming or little-know developers getting their first shot at having a game appear on a console.

What's Cheaper: Used Copies, Or The Virtual Console?

Kotaku - January 31, 2008


Submitted by Kemkle33 (700) at 1:36AM PST on January 31, 2008


JJ Hendricks over at Vintage Computer & Gaming has truly outdone himself. Taking whining over the price of games on the Wii's Virtual Console as his cue, he's looked at the average used-copy price of every single game available on the service, and compared them to the price Nintendo are charging on the VC. His findings? Intriguing.

At CES every vendor was selling Wii

Ars Technica - January 11, 2008

True story : At CES, everyone was using the Wii system to draw people into their booths. Showing off a huge projector? Hook up a Wii, put Wii Sports on the screen, and start handing out controllers. Same thing with televisions, chairs, speakers, home theater decorations... you name it. If the product was in some way able to have a Wii hooked up to it, that's the way vendors tried to hook observers.

Wii Prices on eBay Already Going Bananas

kotaku - November 26, 2007


Submitted by -THE-RAY- (266) at 9:32AM PST on November 27, 2007


To recap, the recommended retail price for a Nintendo Wii in the United States is $249... A look on eBay shows prices for the console already reaching $350-$450, and that's just for a vanilla console with one controller, Wii Sports and no Zack & Wiki."

Pachter: Wii sold 725k units in Feb

VG237 - February 16, 2009


Submitted by deftangel (278) at 5:40AM PST on March 16, 2009


“We estimate sell-through of 725k Wii, 300k Xbox 360 and 200k PS3 consoles (a 26% year-over-year unit increase in consoles),” said the analysts.“Our console sell-through forecasts reflect our belief that supplies for Wii hardware were up year-over-year. Double-digit hardware unit growth implies solid software sales growth for the succeeding year, giving us confidence in our 12% growth estimate for 2009 U.S. software sales.”

Pachter: Wii sales up 100pc, 360 up, PS3 down

Vg247 - January 5, 2009


Submitted by deftangel (278) at 6:42AM PST on January 5, 2009


“I haven’t done the work for NPD yet, but my guess is that 360 sales were flat or up a little, PS3 sales down a little, and Wii sales up more than 100%,” said Pachter. “That would end up around 1.2 - 1.3 million 360s, around 700,000 PS3s and around 3 million (or more) Wiis.” Pachter went on to say that his official estimates would be released early next week.

Lucasarts Totally Pissed Over Wii MotionPlus

Kotaku - August 13, 2008


Submitted by necron101 (435) at 9:10PM PST on August 13, 2008


When Nintendo announced MotionPlus for the Wii, who knew about it? Nintendo did. And that's it. They didn't tell a soul. Not even their beloved third-party publishing and development partners, who were understandably a little upset. Lucasarts are among those upset, and...oh, did I say upset? I meant to say totally pissed.
