The sales slowdown Wii faced last year has sparked rumors that Nintendo would release a successor for it soon. The company's Cammie Dunaway was quick to shoot down those rumors. "I don't think it'll be anytime soon," she said about the Wii successor. "Even though our install base is, at this point, five million households larger than the PS2 install base was at the same point in its life cycle, it still has a lot of room to grow." "If you think PS2, there's been about 50 million sold -- Wii close to 28 million sold -- so it says to me there's still a big audience out there that we can access with Wii," she added.In the end, Cammie asserted that " We [Nintendo] will have it [Wii successor] ready when we think the time is right."
