After the fact, predictions of Wii success

Back in September, I linked you to an article by Sean Malstrom about Wii Fallacies, wherein Malstrom discussed different ideas about the Wii and its potential for success, including market disruption. As the Wii is currently selling well, major journalists are now thrusting the idea out there as if it were remarkable.

Jack Uldrich of the Motley Fool, who at least gets credit for discussing the idea, talks about market disruption and then quotes a Wall Street Journal article saying the same thing. The gist is that Nintendo is reaching a heretofore unreached market for games, and Sony better get its ass in gear if they don't want to miss the banana boat.
