"Consumers continue to look to Nintendo for exceptional value and one-of-a-kind gaming experiences. Between games like Super Mario Galaxy 2, the pioneering motion controls of the Wii system and the portable fun of Nintendo DS systems, Nintendo offers something for everyone. As we prepare to launch a remarkable lineup of new games in the second half of the year, we are grateful that consumers are supporting Nintendo consoles to continue their run as the nation?s most popular game systems."
Cammie Dunaway, NoA VP of Sales & Marketing.
