Wii pubs have to sell 1 million units to make profit? Nintendo says comment was incorrect

There has been an update to the NY Times story that we ran with yesterday. As expected, it looks like Reggie was misquoted…

Finally, one clarification on the story we did Monday on this subject. For the story, Nintendo had told me that publishers of Wii games need to sell only one million games to turn a profit. The company wrote me to say that it meant that publishers can make a profit selling fewer than one million copies of a particular game. Nintendo declined to be any more specific about a number. - NY Times

Now that makes a lot more sense. I just wish Nintendo would have clarified with a specific number. Thanks to Rhonin the wizard for the heads up!
