The popularity of Wii is becoming monstrous. Nintendo’s game console has reached 30 million units sold in the U.S.
While Sony’s PS2 sold this amount of units in 60 months, Wii accomplished this performance in about 45 months which propels it as the fastest-selling video game console in history.
“More than any other video game system in history, Wii has expanded the world of video games to new audiences,” commented Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of sales and marketing. “This milestone is another reminder that people want fun games they can play with others – all at a value-minded price.”
Wii sales across the globe are estimated at around 72 million making the 41 million number for the Xbox 360 and the 36 million for the PS3 afde by comparison.
