It seems that the first signs that the poor global economy is affecting Nintendo have surfaced. Nintendo has cut the shipment forecasts for its Wii console from the previous estimate of 27.5 million shipped globally by March 2009.

The new shipment estimate now shows Nintendo expects to ship 26.5 million consoles. All things considered, a reduction of 1 million units shipped is not nearly as bad as the forecasts reductions many companies have announced.

The Wii is also still very hard to find in many locations around the world. Sony is also reporting slowing sales with less PS3's sold in Q4 2008 than were sold in Q4 of 2007. Sales of Sony's PSP also declined in Q4 2008 compared to Q4 2007.
