Have you heard the news? The Wii is kicking major butt all over the place! Not bad for a system with no games, eh?
Wii emerged as the month’s best-selling video game system of any type in the United States and achieved its highest weekly sales rates since December, despite pricing shifts in the industry, according to the independent NPD Group and internal Nintendo figures. Wii and Nintendo DS remained the two best-selling video game systems in the United States, with Nintendo hardware outselling all other systems combined!
Nintendo is averaging 9 new games every month for the Wii since launch, which is more than any of the other consoles out there. Add in the huge catalog of DS games (300+ games) and you can see a very bright future for Nintendo.
Nintendo also claims six of the industry’s top 10 best sellers, including the top three: Pokemon Diamond (overall No. 1) and Pokemon Pearl (No. 3) for Nintendo DS, and Wii Play (No. 2) for Wii. I know why the Pokemon games sell so well but I’m not so sure about Wii Play.
Tomorrow we can expect the next top game to be released: Metroid Prime 3: Corruption!
