Games Thanks to the massive success of the Wii and DS game consoles, Nintendo was able to turn the tide and once again become the number one game company in the world. As with any honeymoon, however, it must come to an end at some point. Nintendo reported its financial results for the first half of 2009 yesterday, and it didn't look good.

You mean they managed to sell a game which is basically crap? 47 million pices of it?
I don't have a Wii or any other console but just from the numbers it's obvious they could find a pretty big market for themselves.
Plus those numbers show something else namely that there are many people who don't mind moving while they are playing. Maybe it's not appealing to the so called "hardcore gamer" but from the numbers it looks like they are the minority.

Well, that game is sold with the console, so people are getting it whether they like it or not.

Personally, I find it unacceptably boring and ugly, but it does seem to have a certain appeal to non-gamers, like my girlfriend's parents.
