Four million Nintendo Wiis by year's end — that's 4,000,000 more Opera browsers

November 1, 2006

BetaNews published an article today that cites Nintendo’s plan to release at least four million Wii consoles between its launch on November 19th and the end of the year.

That’s 4,000,000 more Opera browsers in the market.

Granted not all Wii gamers will use the Opera browser on the Wii to browse the web, but it’s likely that a nice percentage of them will. According to the article most of the 4 million Wii consoles will be shipped to the US.

    Not technically. People will need to download opera first being as it doesn’t come pre-installed, but I’m sure a fair percentage of people will download, I know I am 😀

    santouras, you right about that. The download, however, will be free.

    weird how the Opera logo is on the Wii package yet not pre-installed. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

    Probably to increase sales in Japan? (I heard Opera has built a fairly decent brand image among the tech-savvy in Japan).
