It would seem as though, despite Nintendo’s worldwide success, manufacturers report a drop in the companies orders to make new consoles.
Mitsumi Electric and Hosiden Corp, who both supply Nintendo with parts for the Wii are predicting a 50% drop in income this financial year. From the year ending March, Nintendo have been requesting 30% less parts for manufacture.
When speaking to Eurogamer, Nintendo simply stated:
“we are confident we will be able to satisfy demand for Wii in the UK this peak season”
It’s unclear as to whether this is a permanent decrease or the reasons why Nintendo have chosen to lower its rate of production. In the past the company has been criticised for under-producing in order to create demand, but they may well be expecting the number of sales to falter.
