a person posted on gs that the entire gaming industry knows that the wii is doing bad and is trying to get back on track by releasing the 3ds. his post got many + ratings so i thought it must have some truth.

but when i go to vgchartz.com, they show that the wii and nintendo ds are the highest selling home and portable consoles.

so, is nintendo really doing bad and releasing the 3ds to save themselves?

Not even close.

Nintendo is lying.

No, Nintendo is doing fine. The Wii does seem to be losing some steam, but it's still selling well.

Worldwide sales figures (nearest I could find to date anyway):

Wii: 74 million
PS3: 33 million
360: 39 million

Doesn't look like Nintendo is in trouble to me.

I know for sure that wii is selling well, but as for the DS...In my country, there is a ratio of like 20PSPs:1DS.

They're doing fine. The Wii has been seeing a decrease in sales, and they predict another year of decrease, but Nintendo is not worried. I found this article on Yahoo.

Nintendo has been the only company consistently profitable for the past 20 years, they are not in trouble.
