Iwata: We Will Topple PS2, Nintendo To Have Big Show At E3
What we are looking at are the cumulative Wii and DS sales through the end of 2008. Wii has been selling at industry’s record pace so far, and with new customers acquired by the gaming population expansion efforts, it is not impossible for Wii’s total sales to exceed the final install base of PS2. Wii still has much more room for expansion. We can expect more sales of software in the next fiscal year than in the current year. With what kind of software is Nintendo going to achieve this goal? Well, it will be shown at E3 to be held in the U.S. this June. – Satoru Iwata
Mr. Iwata these are some high promise, and I like them! I am a 100% confident that Nintendo is not looking to repeat the reaction they had last year at E3. I am also as confident, that the Wii will over-take the PS2 before it is all said and done. You can quote me on that, and through it back in my face if it doesn’t happen.
