Wii prints enough cash to make Yamauchi the richest man in Japan

The Nintendo Wii's unprecedented success in the console space has vaulted former Nintendo chairman Yamauchi into top spot on Forbes' list of richest Japanese dudes.  

This guy doesn't even work there anymore and yet the Wii has made his wallet bulge.  He still owns 10% of the company.

There can't be anything better than being super rich in Japan.  Must be tough to hold onto all that cash.  I'd blow it all in one night in Shibuya.
