Yoshiyuki Kinoshita, an analyst at Merrill Lynch, is predicting that 30% of American households will have a Wii by 2011, and 33% of Japanese homes will feature the adorable machine.
Yet another analyst, Jay Defibaugh at Credit Suisse calmed fears that the Nintendo console is more of a fad, "There has been a concern that the Wii was gimmicky but each passing month assuages that," he said in a report.
Okay, financial analysis is one thing, but really, these highly paid business men probably don't strap on a joystick and go to town with a videogame nearly as often as you or TheFeed, and my personal analysis is that 2011 is a loooong way off. I'm not sure the Wii can maintain anything like its current level of interest until then.
What do you think? Will you still be Wii-ing it up in a few years? Will the superior hardware of the PlayStation 3 eventually convert gamers over to the cause?
