Wii Sports officially the best-selling game ever


If you'd like a quick snapshot of what the world has come to, we bring you news that Wii Sports is now officially the best-selling videogame ever made. It has overtaken Super Mario Bros., Pokémon and Tetris, according to trusted stat lover VGCharts.

Obviously, the fact that Wii Sports is packed in with the insanely popular Wii system is the reason for this, piggybacking off a console that has sold 40.52 million units since its November 2006 launch. According to the report, this puts it just slightly ahead of former bestseller Super Marios Bros.

It's worth pointing out that VGCharts is no great officiator, but it's more that this report is true. Anything packed in with the Wii is going to top charts, and the numbers are likely to keep on soaring for as long as people demand the thing. 

Just when we all thought Psychonauts was going to top the chart.
