Wii sales turning upwards
After dropping away in 2009, Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata claims that the end of the year saw sales of the system recover - the big cheese saying that the release of new games saw business improve.
"I think it's now safe to say the Wii has recovered from slowdown," Iwata explains (thanks VG247).
"But I'm not sure if its prudent to use words like revival and recovery lightly before making absolutely certain we can maintain this momentum. So, I steer clear of such words today."
Apparently, Nintendo sold 3 million Wii consoles in the US last month - more than their previous 2008 peak of 2.15 million. Shares in the firm were up 5.1 percent as a result of this timely boost.
The release of New Super Mario Bros. is credited with renewed interest in the console. More as we get it.
