    Sounds like Japan won't get anymore Wiis... I guess if the Wii U outsells the Wii there, it's a smart move. I wonder if they will stop Wii production for the rest of the world soon, especially following China's lifting of the console ban. The Wii U would have to sell a lot more for that to happen though and I guess that could happen too since the Wii U is getting a reasonable amount of games.

    "Motion controls to adjourn" would've been a better title, honestly.

    Wait, will they stop production in Japan or for Japan? Two different things. The article says "for".

    You're right, thanks Veho. I noted it in the OP and any mod can of course change the title.

    I didnt realize that they were still making them...

    My first reaction was to grab another one if something happened to mine... but upon second thought, who needs to when Dolphin works better than the actual thing lol

    It had a nice run, but it's time they focus on the Wii U and move on.
    You were loved Wii, now please stay in my retirement corner already.

    Well that's sad. I hope they can pick up with the Wii U, the spiritual successor to the Wii.
