At first glance, it think to yourself thats not alot, but we you figure in 35 million Wii's and

Nintendo hit the jackpot when they introduced their popular motion sensing console to the market.  Its been selling like hotcakes since its initial release in late 2006.

Do the math, thats 210 billion in pure profit for Nintendo.  Couple that with all the games (in which Nintendo actually makes about %60 of them), and their portable DS and they are making money hand over fist!
