Although Wii sales have been slipping over the last few months, the console is still doing quite fine overall. People have been quick to say that its prosperity on the market is spiraling downward. However, Michael Pachter, analyst for Wedbush Securities, has simply said that Nintendo is a victim of its own success because of the Wii’s initial low price and that the company isn’t in trouble at all.

“You know, Nintendo’s a victim of their own success because had they known how big the Wii was going to be when they launched it, they would have launched it 100 bucks higher. And they would have managed price down to keep demand constant. So instead of selling 25 million Wiis a year, if they had sold 15, people would say ‘Oh my God, you’re geniuses. You’re outselling PS3 and 360.’ And this year they could sell 16 million with this cut. And everybody thinks they’re great. Instead they’re selling 20 million this year and we’re talking about what losers they are. That’s just crazy. They’re killing it…”

There are a number of high-quality releases expected to ship this holiday, from Modern Warfare 2 to Assassin’s Creed 2. While both of these titles are expected to sell well, there’s one game in particular that is also a guaranteed success: New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Not only is the game a classic return to Mario gaming, but it additionally can attract the attention of casual gamers due to its multiplayer gameplay. And according to Michael Pachter, analyst for Wedbush Securities he believes that you’ll be shocked as to how well the title does when it comes out.

“They have 60 million people who are gonna look at this game. What does that attach rate need to be for it to sell 10 million units not very big. It’s gonna shock you how many units that thing sells.”
