Nintendo using codes with WiiSpeak to avoid pre-owned sales

Destructoid - November 12, 2008


Submitted by OuterHaven (559) at 9:16PM PST on November 12, 2008


Nintendo is packaging a unique code with each WiiSpeak peripheral that will allow users to download the WiiSpeak Channel for use, but also screws anyone who wishes to purchase it secondhand. The code is only good for one use and will be the only way to download the service that works with the peripheral. This is the latest incidence of publishers striking back at used game sales, which is an epidemic crushing profits and putting the entire industry at a near standstill.

Edge Online - September 23, 2008

We knew that UK Xbox 360 sales rose by 32 % over the weekend following Microsoft’s move to cut the console’s price last Friday. What is news that in that week, sales of Wii rose by 3%. So far, no negative impact from X360 price cut yet, even though X360 are now cheaper than Wii.

Sega confirms Sonic and the Black Knight, Spring 2009

Joystiq - July 21, 2008


Submitted by oznerol (1) at 11:15AM PST on July 21, 2008


Sonic continues his storybook adventures with Sonic and the Black Knight, a Wii-exclusive Arthurian sequel to the Arabian Nights-infused Sonic and the Secret Rings. In this installment, Sonic picks up a sword "to aid in his effort to save the day," causing us to wonder aloud (stop staring at us!) if Black Knight could be one of the first third-party games to utilize the Wii MotionPlus.

Game Console Market Dissected: Nintendo Wii Is Dying

The Motley Fool - September 10, 2010


Submitted by kooistrak1 (29) at 1:01PM PST on September 10, 2010


The Wii's decline, which stands at a cumulative -21.2% in this year, is due to its originally high shipment numbers and is therefore solely responsible for this decline. Both the Xbox 360 and the PS3 have posted solid cumulative gains of 54.1% and 44.8%, respectively. The Xbox 360 has now outsold the Wii for the past four months in the U.S. and the PS3 isn't far from catching up to the Wii.
