Nintendo Officially Discontinues Wii in Japan



Nintendo of Japan quietly listed Wii as discontinued in Japan on its official website today. We all knew it was coming. Earlier this year Nintendo shut down several off the system’s major channels and other networking functionality. Then Nintendo told us Wii production would end soon in Japan. Now, here we are. Nintendo will continue to produce Wii’s elsewhere in the world, but the writing is on the wall; the company will soon cease production internationally as the company focuses on Wii U. And at the end of the day, who can blame Nintendo? Wii has grossed over 100 million in lifetime sales since its release in 2006.

Enfin entrés dans les foyers de la classe moyenne américaine, des artistes comme Sly Stone, Stevie Wonder et Marvin Gaye rappellent qu’à l’origine du rock, il y a le rhythm’n’blues, et prouvent à qui en doutait encore que la créativité et le génie artistique sont universels.
