Nintendo: Wii 2 once Wii sells 45 million

Reggie Fils-Aime opens up about Wii 2 plans.

Update: Reports suggest that the new Wii 2 launch is pegged for E3 this June.

Original story: Wii 2 once the Wii sells 45 million

Nintendo America’s Reggie Fils-Aime is never shy about coming forward on all matters Ninty. But his latest bit of natter is bound to disappoint those gagging for the Wii 2.

See, the main man has said that with the current Wii still doing the business, hitting 30 million units across the pond, he doesn’t think it’s time to start talking about the much-mooted follow-up to the planet’s bestselling console.

“As we sit here today we're saying the Wii has many, many more units to sell," said Reggie. “After we've reached an installed base of 45 million here in the US, we can have a conversation about the next generation."

That could mean we have a lengthy wait, even if Reggie is just trying to pull attention back onto this year’s Wii lineup. However, with the PS3 and Xbox 360 both getting a new lease of life thanks to Move and Kinect respectively, Nintendo is going to have to make its move soon. Don’t be surprised if E3 2011 sees the Japanese giant tease something new and Wii-shaped.
