What is driving the popularity of Wii? Everyone is curious as to what is making this game so popular? Why is Wii outselling PS3 and XBOX360 and why can't they keep up and surpass Wii's fan base?

As our kids have gotten more obese over the years from just sitting around playing video games, the media wrote story after story about a need for a change.

Well their line of reasoning revolves around the suggestion that if you break the Nintendo Wii sports bundle the price of the console itself which is currently $249 can be lowered to $199 to make it "more affordable". In addition the analyst is insinuating that the Nintendo Wii Sports bundle sales are heading for a decline and that if it is unbundled then it should grow strong again by 2009.

Wii's popularity is due to the fact that it is sold as a bundle. One has to ask aloud Second, how is it possible that the Nintendo Wii Sports Bundle is some how in decline when Nintendo is still trying fill in all the back orders? Currently demand is exceeding the supply even with production of 1.8 million consoles Nintendo is putting out each month.

Lastly Nintendo Wii Sports bundle is so popular not only with the younger demographics but also the older ones. Some people are even saying that they don't buy any other games after purchasing a Nintendo Wii sports bundle.
