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:
- Wii Sports (3,481,469)
- Wii Fit (3,301,373)
- Wii Play (2,672,811)
- Mario Kart Wii (2,218,756)
- Super Smash Bros. Brawl (1,789,924)
