Marketing director Bill Trinen said that the company would continue to focus on Nintendo Wii offers and extras, but not software.

"Wii itself is really interesting because there are so many people who have that system and know what that system is that there's still a lot of opportunity for software sales on Wii," Trinen told Gamespot.

"A lot of that consumer is somebody who is looking for... good games. So whether it's things like Nintendo Selects or a lot of the users also are still using their Wii to deliver Netflix content.

"I think there's also the potential for a lot of people who still haven't purchased Wii, believe it or not, who might be interested at the right price. So we'll probably be looking at it more from that standpoint."
