If anything could make the Wii 2 come sooner rather than later, itís reports such as this on PCMag.com, which posts some troubling figures for Nintendo, just released today by NPD, which reveal that Nintendo saw its sales fall by 31.5 percent since January 2010, with 465, 800 Wiis sold in January 2010 and 319,000 sold in January 2011. However, itís not all bad news for Nintendo, as the Wii is still leading the console market, with 34.5 million sold in the US in total, ahead of Microsoftís Xbox 360 at 25.8 million, and Sonyís PlayStation 3 at 15.7 million.

Generally speaking, PCMag.com says that January has not been a good month for video game sales, with total January 2011 sales for accessories, hand-held systems and PC and console games dropping to $1.16 billion, down from last yearís figure of $1.22 billion. No need for Nintendo to panic then, if Sony and Microsoft are experiencing a sales slump too, but I still wouldnít be at all surprised if the Wii 2 is already well on the way.
