Reggie: New titles to boost hardware sales

Nintendo confident 'important' new titles will pick up Wii sales

Nintendo big man Reggie Fils-Aime says Nintendo has 'a number of important' new games incoming for Wii and DS that will boost hardware sales following the March NPD figures.

Games industry sales have dropped 17 percent in US according to the lastest NPD results but, like Sony, Nintendo says it has software coming that will make up for it.


NOA president, Reggie Fils-Aime cited 'a number of important new titles' coming for Wii and DS, and that Nintendo is "confident that we'll continue to see very strong hardware sales behind those launch titles," he told Reuters.

It was rumoured yesterday that a major Nintendo title was due for release before the end of the year. All eyes on E3 then, we hope.
