The Wii might not taste as delicious as a hot cake (results pending), but it certainly sells as good as one. After less than fifteen months since its release, the Wii has sold over 20 million units worldwide. Through rigorous scientific calculations, Nintendo Wii Fanboy has decided to officially quantify that total as "a lot." Most of these units were sold in the past nine months, causing Nintendo's profits to nearly double in that time.

Nintendo has also reported that 6 million of those Wii units were sold in Europe. The top selling software in the continent includes Wii Play (selling 2.3 million copies), Super Mario Galaxy (selling 1.3 million), Mario Party 8 (selling 1 million), and Twilight Princess (selling 1.3 million).

Not too shabby, Nintendo.
