Nintendo has got to be killing it

Pokemon Platinum for DS (Nintendo's handheld dual-screen game system) came out today. I stood in line with my two boys outside of Gamestop this morning to pick up a game we had paid for in advance to reserve.

The Wii product cycle is long in the tooth and Wii Fit and Wii Music haven't taken off as they could have, so the stock hasn't done anything of late as you can see (5-year chart). Still, the franchise is super solid with preteens (and older kids in Japan) and the stock is cheap.

It looks like a good place to be.
