The last of the Mohicans gathered on Black Friday to finally give in and buy a Nintendo Wii or DS. Nintendo’s in house estimates are to the tune of 900,000 DS handhelds and 600,000 Wii consoles for the week of November 21-27. It’s not like consumers had much of a choice when you’ve got everyone’s favorite plumber staring you right in the eyes celebrating his 25th anniversary. It’s a me Mario, buya me or I slappa de face.
Old technology or not, the Wii is proving that it still has legs this holiday season.
