Industry News | Should South Africa Ready Itself for the Wii?

By Ben 28.08.2007 5

Earlier this year, Nintendo of South Africa's former distributor Futronic, a subsidiary of Panasonic, did not renew its dealership rights and thus lost the ability to sell Nintendo hardware and software in the country.

Amidst all of the manic importing of the last few months, it might come as a relief to Nintendo's South African fans that The Core Group has been tipped as the new distributors for their consoles. Hopefully this will end positively...

It's probably already being sold there illegally.

Maybe it's just because I have a heart for the country with quite a lot of friends from there, but I seriously hope it works out for the South Africans because the Wii shouldn't really be missed out on because of a company's flagrant nonchalance. Futronic would probably be rolling in dough if they'd renewed their thing. (They'd be quite messy, rolling in dough, mind...)

I guess that's the same for any country though. Apart from Nigeria. They can wait for the Wii. They have their high quality TV shows to tide them over.

I was under the impression that it was already on sale in countries like S.Africa, Zimbabwe and Zambia. When you type in your country to the Wii settings them countries come up.

What makes Nigeria different?

Mike Gee of iZINE said, "...The Verve, as he [Richard Ashcroft] promised, had become the greatest band in the world. Most of the critics agreed with him. Most paid due homage. The Verve were no longer the question mark or the clichť. They were the statement and the definition."

What makes Nigeria different?

They have quality TV
