Analyst David Gibson’s Twitter feed is full on Nintendo data, for
anyone who wants to follow the company’s financial patterns. A
particularly noteworthy tweet of his, though, is that Nintendo has
lowered their Wii U sales forecast for this fiscal year again, now down
to 4.3 million units. However, December was a good month for the system,
selling 26 times what it sold in September in the Japanese market
thanks in no small part to the release of
Super Mario 3D World.

In
another tweet he noted that despite all the bad press the Wii U has
been getting, it an the 3DS made up 3/4s of the third quarter’s profits,
so it is not doing as poorly as many would think.

One of my earliest memories with games was just after Pokémon had come out in the states for the first time. I remember, after having watched the show for a couple weeks, stumbling across a friend with an original Gameboy playing Pokémon Red version using a Weedle. When he told me he was playing Pokémon, I told him I didn't know there was a Pokémon that had a pumpkin for a head. Boy games have come a long way. Speaking of games, I also contribute to making them somewhat professionally, and ocassionaly write about them. You should see some of that games writing stuff, I hear it's real popular with the kids these days.
