You have to look at what the DS has done though. It really has not had hype/fad for the past year or so and its sales have not begun to die down. The thing is that if somewhere around 160 million (rough estimate, actually probably a little bit low) home consoles were sold last generation, then it is to be expected that somewhere around at least 150 million home consoles will be sold this generation. You also to have look at the fact that the Wii is catching new audiences that would allow it to have higher sales - it is not just catching those that are gamers (like the 360 and PS3). On top of that, many people will probably have the Wii as a second console along with their 360 or PS3. I believe that the Wii will continue to sell well for quite sometime and continue on selling a good amount of system for at least into 2010. Plus Nintendo has a number of resources they can use to boost sales of the Wii when needed - a price cut, new colors, a bit extra capability (the possibility of a DVD-capable Wii in Japan), bundles, etc.
Like Heloise10 said, 500k per month is only for the U.S. Production levels are now at around 1.8 million per month globally. Significantly higher than your number of 1.25 million per month that you stated for needed per month sales.
