Nintendo has announced its latest financial results, and while the Wii sold 5.75 over the past six months, Nintendo experienced sharp drops in its profit. The current Wii sales total stands at just over 56 million, which is still a great achievement.

I guess this will increase the rumours of the wii 2. The only problem though is that wii sports is one of the major reasons for the wiis success so how they will trump this I dont know.

Record setting years in profits are not going to continue forever. The point is to continue making profits so that you can stay in the game. I am sure Nintendo would have jumped at the chance to make the current amount of profits they are making now during their GC days.

Profits are down from last year, but they're still higher than just about every company on the planet.

This was along the lines of what i was thinking, It's time for a backup plan the Wii has quite a few problems facing it and you know its bad when third parties are telling us "Our game is so hardcore, If you do not buy it is your fault there is no content for you on the Wii". 2010 does seem to early though.
