Wii 2 won’t arrive until sales hit 45 million in United States

If you’re already tired of the Wii sitting in your living room right now, don’t expect a new one soon.

Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime recently said that there won’t be a Wii 2 until the original Wii hits sales of 45 million units in the land of hot dogs and bad beer, also known as the United States.

“As we sit here today we’re saying the Wii has many, many more units to sell,” he said. “After we’ve reached an installed base of 45 million here in the US, we can have a conversation about the next generation.”

Earlier in the week, at an investment conference in New York, Fils-Aime said the Wii’s U.S. install base currently sits at around 30 million units, so it looks like that 45 million unit figure won’t be reached very soon.
