Submitted by lstormy10 (291) at 1:04PM PST on January 24, 2008

According to the software data tracking service, consumers purchased 8.11 games for every Wii console sold in December. This relates to 7.76 games for every Xbox 360 sold during the month and 5.04 games for every PlayStation 3 purchased in the same time frame."

Wii Wheel sold separately for $15 at Gamestop

Engadget - March 28, 2008


Submitted by vGInfidel (149) at 8:05PM PST on March 29, 2008


We've known that Nintendo would be bundling a single Wii Wheel in with the forthcoming Mario Kart Wii title, but now it seems that folks riding shotgun (or riding your tail) can grab one of their own. According to a recently released flyer from GameStop, extra Wheels -- should the plethora of steering apparatuses already out there not suffice -- will be sold for a cool $14.99 each.

Reggie: We won't be able to meet Christmas demand

GI - October 1, 2007


Submitted by Just_Ben (128) at 2:05AM PST on October 1, 2007


Reggie:"We're working very hard to make sure that consumers are satisfied this holiday, but I can't guarantee that we're going to meet demand. As a matter of fact, I can tell you on the record that we won't,"..."What I can tell you is that typically, our inventory is lasting a day... I don't think we will know when supply crosses with demand until after the holiday season," ... "The issue is not a lack of production. The issue is we went in with a curve that was aggressive, but the demand has been substantially more than that. And the ability to ramp up production and to sustain it is not a switch that you flick on,"

Activision Addresses Wii Third Party Debate

Next Gen Biz - May 31, 2007


Submitted by rikitikitik (305) at 10:47PM PST on May 31, 2007


In this article, Activision formally affirms of the stronger game development support they would give the Wii as compared to their support for the Gamecube. They do not believe that 3rd parties will not prosper on the Wii and they think that they're "in the best position and probably even in a better position than the first-party to leverage [their] development dollars."
