Wii Fit sale rank was #19(game with board) and #28 for just the software.  The lowest listed selling price for Wii Fit Plus with Balance Board is $152.99, and the selling price for just the software is $19.00.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii's sale rank was #15 and the selling price is $48.99. Review Score Averages:
The review score average have stayed the same as last week, for all the games.
Wii Sports Resort's average review score is 82.78%.
Wii Fit Plus' average review score is 81.32%.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii's average review score is 87.95%.

Six weeks and counting, is still out-of-stock of Wii Fit Plus with Balance Board.  Currently, the starting price for Wii Fit Plus with Balance Board is $152.99 new!  
Again, that price is from 2nd/3rd party vendors on

I'm guessing the Wii Balance Board is proving harder to manufacture than Nintendo anticipated.  Again, Nintendo seems to have problems with keeping up manufacturing of not only hardware pieces like the Wii and Wii Balance Board, but also of just software like New Super Mario Bros. Wii.

I understand they may have played it conservatively with initial Wii production, but seriously, they need to get the production problems resolved.  I'm glad to know their products are selling extremely well, and they seem to be quality products, but six weeks and counting for a major site like to be out of stock of a product, is crazy!

As for the game-play times, I think New Super Mario Bros. Wii will pass Wii Sports Resort on May 1, 2010, when the data is updated that day.  I think both games will be reporting right around 6,800,000 "Total Hours" played, with New Super Mario Bros. Wii slightly ahead of Wii Sports Resort.

If you're a stock investor, or a potential stock investor, would you be looking at buying, selling, or holding Nintendo stock at it's current price with what you're seeing from the company?

If you're interested in purchasing any of the games mentioned above, you can see what they're selling for on right below!

  1. In regards to your question I have been contemplating purchasing some stock and Nintendo is one of the company's I am thinking about buying into. There are a few others as well but Nintendo would probably be within the top 5 stocks that I would buy into. Unfortunately right now money is needed in other areas other than stock maybe a little bit down the road though.

  2. I was actually thinking of buying some stock in Atari, with their 2600 selling gangbusters!....oh, wait.

    Nintendo would be a nice company to put stock in with their sales being the way they are. Although I still wouldn't count out the other two companies either.

    If anything, Blizzard would probably be the way to go, but not sure if they even have stock.

  3. @NintendoGamer:
    There are a lot of video game companies with stock.
    If you're like me, you need more shares for your buck, so finding the cheaper stock prices is always good. The main issue with some of the companies is trying to figure out if they'll be around in a year's time, and how risky it is to invest in them.

    @Keith Swiader:
    I've debated on buying some Atari stock in the past. I just checked for their stock symbol, but I couldn't find it easily.

    As for Blizzard, they're owned by Activision now, so it's Activision Blizzard, Inc. now.
    The stock symbol is ATVI, and I've watched them for a few months now. Not much activity at all really, the stock price has stayed in the 10.00 to 11.00 range for a good while now.

    Thanks for the comments!
