Wii doubles Nintendo’s profit

Recent sales figures released show that the Wii console boosted Nintendo’s profit by nearly 200% from the previous year - Sales rose 84.7 per cent from a year ago to 1.316 trillion yen ($US12.35 billion) from $US7.12 billion.

The machines, which first went on sale in late 2006, have been snatched up as soon as they arrive at stores, outstripping the competing PlayStation 3 from Sony and Xbox 360 from Microsoft.

Nintendo said it has now sold more than 20 million Wii machines worldwide, 14.29 million of them during the latest three quarters.

New Wii games, including “Wii Fit,” “Super Mario Galaxy” and “Wii Sports,” have been an amazing success.

Nintendo said it expects to sell 18.5 million Wiis and 29.5 million DS machines for the fiscal year through March 31.
