More Wii’s – ever more Wii’s!!!

As we approach the holiday season, Nintendo has already said that they don’t expect to keep with demand for the Wii console. In an interview with the LA Times, Nintendo president Reggie Fils-Aime said they’re ramping up production by 33% already, with further increases planned. They’re hoping to avoid the scarcity of Wii’s that occurred last year, which cost them a great deal of money in potential sales. “We’re now producing 2.4 million units a month worldwide. Last year, we made 1.6 million a month. So we’ve made a 33% increase. One of our competitors projects they will sell 10 million consoles worldwide this year. For us, that’s three months of production. We’re producing an unprecedented level of hardware to try to meet demand.

Amazing amounts of hardware indeed! Wow… Now, can we get a decent race game please?

PI in a crop-circle

A very compley, altough not very beautiful in a classical sense, cropcircle has emerged….

Link

If you know how, you can, apparently you can read the number pi in there, somehow. I have not been able to do so, but then again, I’m no alien. (Despite suggestions otherwise!)

Bought a Wii Fit board…

Yep, call me a sissy: I like my games to be FUN…!

And I must say: this is loads of fun. You can really get a workout with this thing, and having fun at the same time! Of course, I only own it for like 4 days, so how it will hold up in the long run I don’t know – but I will find out…! So far, I like it :-)

Wii even a hit with seniors

The Wii turns out to be a hit even with seniors:

Link

Well, I can easily see that it would attract them. It is (can be) a social activity – and you have to move your ageing body! It could even be a good exercise.
