    From my own personal collection, I 22 games for my Wii, half that are from Nintendo, half that are from Nintendo and half that are third party. Earlier, I sold 5 games, 4 which were third party, De Bolb, Metal Slug Anthology, Sonic and the Secret Rings and Medal of Honor Heroes 2 and 1 game that was first party, Battalion Wars 2.

    I wouldn't mind some big budget 3rd party projects on Wii.

    I believe it, 50 million units sold in 2 years 50 Million and still going strong. 731,000 units sold in February, during the biggest recession of our generation.

    Nintendo hit a homerun, the wii can't become outdated because of it's legacy games. Where else can you get all your old favorites without hacking up an xbox? And no other system reaches every age group like the Wii.

    I believe it, but look at the majority of third party games last year. Most of them were just alright while some were just awful. Although the quality of titles is improving and these information is promising, it will be interesting to see what 2009 brings the Wii in terms of third party sales.
