I don't know that this trend will last for Nintendo, because casual gamers are just that, casual, so they are bound to be fickle at some point, as opposed to all the loyal fanboys that MS and Sony have. However, I do give credit to Nintendo for having a good nose for the market.
I agree with you, most people I know who have a Wii just play it casually and don't play it all that much, compared to the amount of time people spend on the other 2 consoles.

Most people I know who play the Wii do play the crap games that not many hardcore gamers would even consider playing.

I agree that more resources are spent on producing crap games for casual gamers
