Wii Tops 10 Million in the Americas Faster than All Previous Consoles

Today, Vgchartz data revealed that Wii topped 10 million units in the Americas for the week ending March 22, 2008. Wii hit 10 million in only 70 weeks from its November 2006 launch in the Americas, which is easily a record. Nintendo's previous system, the Gamecube took over three years, 167 weeks, to hit 10 million in the Americas.

70% of the people who own the console are in a wheelchair anyway.

It is owned by mostly senior citizens not casual/hardcore gamers

lol, 70%? You forgot to entitle your post, "Statistics I Pull Out of Thin Air to Masquerade Them as Fact"

Now all they have to do is sell some actual games.

PS360WII3762d ago

nintendo owned characters.

quick go go go...

Why does it have to exclude 1st-party titles? Because Nintendo's competitors don't sell as many 1st-party titles? No need to pigeonhole just to make a point.

Anyway, to answer your question:

RE4: Wii Edition
Carnival Games
Rayman Raving Rabbids
Sonic & the Secret Rings

FYI, there are more than five titles on the Wii that fit your criteria that've sold over a million, but you only asked for five.

Redsteel also sold over a million, and Resident Evil Umbrella chronicles is fast reaching that milestone.

I thought the Wii was a fade that would die out, but that was before I tried it. I tried it Sunday bought it Mon. Tons of fun great for me and the wife to mess with. Plus I already have a PS3 so I get the best of both worlds. Now if only I had a little more money to get a 360 o well maybe by Christmas. Although with all the good games coming out this year who knows

Say what you want, but wii pwns 360 and PS3 as far as launch sales. accept it.
