Nintendo on their last legs? Sales falter for April.

Nintendo saw sales of the will and their new 3DS falter during april, New data gathered by NPD Group “a research firm” reveal.

The research shows that the WII sold just 172,000 consoles last month which is down 38% from April the year previous.  Whilst this is an understandable decline in sales, taking into account the age of the console and the announcement that the Wii’s successor will be with us shortly, the sales for their latest venture, the 3DS isn’t as forgiving, Selling 400,000 units during its opening week, the 3DS sold a much smaller 194,000 sales during the whole of April, Does this spell danger for old Ninty?
