The day that we all knew was coming has finally arrived. Wii production in Japan ceased operations today as confirmed by the Nintendo Japan page. There was a simple message, “Manufacturing has ended.” That puts the grand number of total Wii’s sold thus far at 100.4 million consoles across the globe.
Farewell Wii, you came into our lives when motion control in home gaming barely existed and introduced gaming to the mainstream audience. You’ve earned a good rest.
