Nintendo Talks Wii Zelda, The Existence Of Wii HD And Modern Warfare 2


The Nintendo Wii has sold over 40 million units in the United States. While the video game world might be focused on the Wii U's price and release date, Nintendo America president Reggie Fils-Aime says the company will continue to sell its Wii console. "We will continue to sell the Wii side-by-side for some period of time," Fils-Aime said.

The company is setting its sights on other locations for Wii sales. "We believe that there continues to be an opportunity with the Wii," Reggie told Engadet."I'm responsible for Canada, and Latin America as well...We think there's opportunity in both of those markets, especially Latin America."

The Wii is currently not for sale in Latin America, but that isn't the only emerging market that's about to get Wii'ed on.

"There are markets in Eastern Europe. There are a number of other markets where if Wii has an attractive price point, it'll do well," Reggie said.

There was no word on this from Nintendo, but if you've been holding off for this long on buying an original Wii, your amazing patience will most likely be rewarded with a further price-drop on the device.
