Sales of the Wii are now said to have dropped 21% in a single year's time. Sales of software have also dropped along with console sales.

 

The DS is said to have declined as well with a 12% drop. The DS sales will increase undoubtedly with the 3DS on the horizon. Perhaps a new Wii that has more to offer than a new color will be coming. The console needs HD graphics.
