To say the Nintendo brand has had a checkered past within NZ would be an understatement. With several distributor changes, up and down sales and finally the marketing & PR being handled by Nintendo Australia. Many kiwi gamers would feel the console war would just come down to PS3 vs. Xbox 360 in good ole Aotearoa.
However some interesting figures came out in the last week leading up to Christmas Day/Boxing Day. The NZ sales chart had Wii Sports Resort, Wii Play and Wii Fit Bundle taking out the top 3 positions.
Could we be seeing a change in attitudes towards the Nintendo Wii in NZ?
