Just some recent-ish sales data I dug up from the depths of the internet. Wii accomplishments, Link’s Crossbow Training, and some random fighting game Nintendo’s released.
Nintendo’s little-engine-that-could, the Wii, has most likely outsold the GameCube by now. The ‘Cube, which sort of petered out at a little over 21 million units sold, is long dead. The Wii, on the other hand, has a *confirmed* 20 million sold as of January 2008, according to official sales reports. However, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out if it has managed to sell an extra couple million in the span of 3 and a half months. Any offical confirmations of this feat is really a “duh” moment.
Link’s Crossbow Training, the 2 hour game with the packed-in plastic “Zapper” shell for the Wii remote hit the 1 million mark awhile back. Yeah, I’m surprised too.
Lastly, during the month (and few days) Brawl’s been out in Japan, it’s already sold 1.3 million copies. No data on US sales yet, considering it’s only been out for a couple days now, but you can be sure to catch it here as soon as it becomes available.
