30 million Wiis sold in the US


If you went out this week to pick up a Wii, congratulations! You're part of history. Nintendo just announced that the Wii has now exceeded 30 million units sold in the US, forty-five months after its launch.

To celebrate the occasion, Nintendo released some rare sales data, disclosing not only the top ten Nintendo-published Wii games (as of the end of June), but the top ten third-party games as well. Nothing from 2010 is on the list, reaffirming the belief that many Nintendo titles enjoy high sales alongside long tails. If that list isn't to your liking, however, perhaps you should go buy several copies of Sin & Punishment: Star Successor to move things along.

Top ten Nintendo-published Wii games in the US:

  1. Wii Play
  2. Mario Kart Wii
  3. Wii Fit
  4. New Super Mario Bros. Wii
  5. Wii Sports Resort
  6. Super Smash Bros. Brawl
  7. Super Mario Galaxy
  8. Wii Fit Plus
  9. Mario Party 8
  10. Link's Crossbow Training*
Top ten third-party Wii games in the US:
  1. Guitar Hero III*
  2. Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games
  3. Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga*
  4. Carnival Games
  5. Game Party
  6. EA Sports Active
  7. Just Dance
  8. Rayman Raving Rabbids
  9. Deca Sports
  10. Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games

*No, really.
