Nintendo reducing Wii production?

Affected Japanese manufacturers say so.

Nintendo may be reducing the amount of Wii consoles made, as companies involved in the process report a "drop-off in orders from Nintendo to assemble game systems".

Nikkei unearthed the scoop (thanks VG247), claiming that manufacturers Mitsumi and Hosiden face a 50 per cent drop in income this financial year.

Nintendo UK told us this morning that "we are confident we will be able to satisfy demand for Wii in the UK this peak season".

Long-term, however, the ramifications are unclear.
