Wii Balance Board outsells PS3!

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Wii Balance Board outsells PS3!

 

PS3 current sales (retail, not shipments) - 31.76 Million

Wii Fit Plus + Wii Fit = 32.2 Million

According to the latest Nintendo report of sales, the majority of Wii Fit Plus sales come from the balance board bundle, not the standalone game, so it might be safe to assume that Balance Board already surpassed the PS3 instaled base, or at least is very very close to achieve that.

 

Is it the first time in history that an expensive peripheral surpasses the sales of a major home console?

 

This is impressive!

 

 

 



Around the Network

Um, I'd like to see where Nintendo claimed that Wii Fit Plus is mostly being bought as the full bundle, because it seems most places I only see the software standalone being sold...



Haha! Though, your assumptions are not valid. It wouldn't just have to be the majority, it would have to be ~90%.

Either way, it's probably not far behind.



A game I'm developing with some friends:

It is largely a technical exercise but feedback is appreciated.

Hmm interesting....



Explanation of sig:

I am a Pakistani.....my name is Dan....how hard is that? (Don't ask about the 101...apparantely there are more of me out there....)

so every wii fit plus is sold with the balance board?



Bet reminder: I bet with Tboned51 that Splatoon won't reach the 1 million shipped mark by the end of 2015. I win if he loses and I lose if I lost.

False. Most Wii Fit Plus's sold are disc only.



Motion plus will probably do it too.

Don't Play Stationary 4 ever. Switch!

I'm with demotruk.......it may be close to, but it's not there yet.



This is a good opportunity for a blast from the past, but I am using the Wii browser currently.

Is anyone nice enough to type "how long will the PS3 stay in third place" into the forum search engine and paste the link of that thread in here?



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
