Nintendo's next-gen Wii expected to sell out

Nintendo's next-gen Wii expected to sell out: he Wii U, the successor to Nintendo Co. Ltd.'s hugely popular motion-based gaming console, is expected to get off to a faster start than its predecessor, but may have trouble matching the original Wii's long-term success, according to market research firm IHS iSuppli.

IHS (El Segundo, Calif.) forecasts that Will U will sell more briskly in following its launch Nov. 18 than the original did, largely due to pent-up demand from Wii fans. But over the longer term, Will U will need to overcome a fragmented market for gaming and the proliferation of smartphones, tablets and other platforms that support gaming, according to the firm.
