I work in retail, and I can say that I was selling about 20 Wii's a day. They're so damn popular, we couldn't get enough of them.

Why are people still buying Wii's, exactly? Is it bored people getting a second for the red color or am I missing something?

Still some good games on the Wii, things like Super Mario World and Donkey Kong Country Returns. Not to mention, the fairly hefty library available on the Virtual Console.

I'm more referring to the fact that most people that wanted one already have one by now.

This is nintendo after all. Its no wonder people still want to buy the Wii. Its one of the most popular consoles of all time. Mario, zelda' metroid, kirby and donkey kong are games that will push sales higher and higher for sure.

The Wii is a great console. As walnuts said, there are plenty of great games out there for it, and probably the widest variety of genres of any console besides the DS. This new red Wii looks awesome though, I'm not surprised it's so popular.

Where does that statistic come from? The Wii sold well because it was a great time to buy one, with all these games geared towards the 'hardcore' crowd who weren't into the Wii.

Statistic? When did I say it was a statistic? Wii sales have slowed down big time over the past year, and that can largely be attributed to the fact that (common sense here) after a few years, the people that really want one have one, leaving the market to be settled down a bit and most buyers being people getting a newer one for colors, etc. (or previous failure) and fewer people actually buying one for the first time.

Oh yeah, I'd love to hear of the games geared toward the "hardcore" crowd. Maybe the "nostalgic" crowd, but the Wii still fails to put forth legitimate games that attract "hardcore" gamers aside from the old series that have been around since the NES/SNES days.
