FUD Zilla reports the Wii sales slowdown was just a blip, and that demand was up significantly in December.
Although official NPD Group results aren’t due until January 14th, Nintendo already announced that the company expects 3 million units sold in the US. in December. The same month in 2008 racked up 2.15 million units sold, so this is more than a nice feat for the company.

Nintendo’s head man, Satory Iwata said how such sales are a direct result of a stronger software lineup and pricecuts. However, Mr. Iwata also wisely added that he can’t use words like “revival” and “recovery” before making sure that this trend will continue and that they “can maintain this momentum”.
