Report: Wii games dominate top 5 US sellers in '08 (so far)


Still obsessing over sales statistics, Gamasutra has crafted a report on 2008's five top-selling games in the US -- so far. Though some figures are approximated, there's assurance that "the maximum possible error in each figure should not affect the rankings." All consoles considered, the rankings are as follows:
  1. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (3.5 million, estimated)
  2. Mario Kart (3.4 million)
  3. Grand Theft Auto IV (3.2 million, estimated)
  4. Wii Play (3 million)
  5. Wii Fit (2.8 million)
Be sure to check out the report for further details, several of which are likely to fuel the fanboy fires for, oh, the next fifteen minutes at least. We look forward to entertaining your "Wii games don't sell," "GTA IV is overrated" and "Wii Play is just a controller in disguise" arguments. We do not, however, want anything to do with your "Why isn't Golden Axe: Beast Rider on there?" madness.
