Shigeru Miyamoto said:

“Nintendo years ago considered and rejected the type of approach Sony is now taking. Clearly Nintendo’s Miis have become a cultural phenomenon in their own right, appealing well beyond the traditional core gamer audience, and the process of populating them across the Wii universe is just beginning."

He then went on to talk about the XBOX 360:

“Wii handily outsold them in January, both in Europe and on a worldwide basis. We are very optimistic. Microsoft recently lowered the sales outlook for its entertainment and device division for the second half of its fiscal year because it had excess inventory of Xbox 360s on store shelves. At the same time, we cannot keep Wii on store shelves and Nintendo is forecasting record profits across the board.”
