Nintendo Wii hit stores back in late 2006, and went on to leave a deep imprint on the world of gaming. The console pushed 100 million units worldwide since its debut, and now it's time for it to bow out gracefully.
A follow-up with Nintendo confirmed that production on Wii consoles is ending soon. Speaking with AFP, a Nintendo spokesperson said, "Our new generation Wii U console is already on the market and allows users to play software originally designed for the Wii … So this is part of the transition of our products to new models."
We bid Nintendo Wii a fond farewell!
