Wii passes 8 million sold mark in Japan

Game hardware sales may be slowing down in Japan, with the Wii slowing down more, but Nintendo can still find milestones to celebrate. According to Enterbrain, the Wii has sold 8 million units in Japan as of April 19. Worldwide, the total number of consoles (shipped) passed 50 million last month. Compared to that, 8 million may not sound huge, but it's about 5 million units more than the PlayStation 3 sold as of last month.

Enterbrain also released a list of the top five Wii games in Japan and their life-to-date sales:
  1. Wii Sports (3,481,469)
  2. Wii Fit (3,301,373)
  3. Wii Play (2,672,811)
  4. Mario Kart Wii (2,218,756)
  5. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (1,789,924)
