Nintendo and their Wii own retail, has a chart to prove it photo



Every once in awhile, Nintendo sends us an e-mail to remind us how awesome they are. You see, sometimes we can forgot. Personally, it's been months since I've turned on my Wii to play a game that I didn't have to play for "work." So I guess it's nice of Nintendo to remind us that, hey, people are actually buying their products. A lot of people.

Nintendo points out that, despite pricing shifts and SKU debacles that have hit the industry, the Wii has emerged as the best selling console of this month (this from NPD Group numbers and internal figures). Nintendo also reminds us both the Wii and the Nintendo DS have remained the two best-selling videogame systems in the US. 

Additionally, new Wii titles are being added to the library at a faster rate than any other home console to date, at an average rate of nine a month. Nintendo were nice enough to provide us with a handy chart, which you can see above. 

Hit the jump some more fast and furious facts, proving undeniably that even if you haven't changed your Mii's eyebrows in eight months, Nintendo's still on top.

  • * Nintendo remained the top U.S. game publisher for the sixth consecutive month.
  • * So far this year, Nintendo titles claim six of the industry's top ten best sellers, including the top three: Pokemon Diamond, Pokemon Pearl, and Wii Play.
  • * The Nintendo DS has the largest game library for any current-generation system, with more than 300.
  • * Between the Wii retail library, the Wii Shop Channel, and the Nintendo DS, there will be over 800 games to choose from by the end of the year.
