In just another feat in a long line of feats for the Nintendo Wii, Mario Kart Wii has according to VGcharts numbers sold over 30 million copies! So after about 3.5 years of steady sales it finally did it! This is one of Nintendo's really big success stories of the Wii! Yes, they had it bundled for a little while, but most of the time this little game was sold by itself. 50 dollars a pop! So that is a good chunk of change if you ask me.
Next we have the Charismatic Wii Sports Resort, the little Brother of the Colossal Wii Sports. By Christmas this year this title should be at 30 million as well! I would say that both of these games probably did more for the company than Wii Sports did, but that would be selling that game short. Wii Sports may not have made as much money on the game itself, but it certainly helped bring a ton of interest to the system. That interest that it built it one of the reasons the Wii will eventually be at 100 million Units sold.
Now here is my big question. Can Wii Sports break 100 million in sales? It's at about 79 million right now. Should be over 80 million by the end of the year. If the Wii can skrimp by for 1-2 more years, do you think it has a chance?
But now back to the big story !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
