Nikkei, Nintendo has begun the process of reducing the number of Wiis being manufactured.
The report says that two Japanese companies - Mitsumi and Hosiden - are facing massive losses in revenue this year due to the "declining fortunes" of the Wii and a "drop-off in orders from Nintendo to assemble game systems".
Both companies are now staring at a drop in net profits of more than 50%.
