Nintendo Co.'s Wii home video game system in the new hardware market leader in the U.S., with a total of 10.9 million units sold to date, according to NPD Group Inc. Wii previously held sales of 10.3 million units at the end of May.
Congratulation goes out to nintendo. I am very happy for the success you are having.
lmao people are disagreing with you cause you congratulated nintendo on there success. must be some but hurt xbox fan out their. I for one will congratulate nintendo on their success, and this is coming from a sony fan.
"Lame: (9 minutes ago) Congratulaions....8mil are 2 yr olds and soccer moms. " Goodfella2487. As if that means that they are less important than other people? As if their money isn't worth as much? Nintendo owned everyone this generation by promoting their product as FUN for the General Audience. If Microsoft/Sony did the same thing, I'm sure you would be saying "GREAT BUSINESS PLAN!!!" The hate for the Wii is completely inconceivable. It defies all of the stupid jackass system wars rules of "OMG ONLY AAA TITLE OMG OMG SALES OMG OMG", so maybe thats why all fanboys are butt hurt to hear about a company that owns a quality product? It appeals to hardcore gamers, and soccer moms. Nintendo is the best at what they are doing right now. The sooner you grasp that, the sooner your feelings wont get hurt when they show everyone else how its done. Nintendo hit that mark, without a year head start.
So I do hope that casual, general audience keeps the attach rate high and buy your next console. As of now they are just off in left field doing their own thing. Great they are making money but I really dont consider that thing a console anymore. Zelda plays better on the gamecube. Which is freaking pathetic.
It is the most crapiest console
And you don't think MS or Sony would love to have Nintendos sales? Whatever you feel for MS or Sony.. Nintendo just knew what the hell the public wanted.
Your the most crappiest troll with one bubble.
As a Sony fan, may i be the first to congratulate Nintendo. i respect u as a company and making family happy. btw: i tried out that wii sport tennis. pretty fun when playing with your buddies
I also congratulate the Nintendo Wii, even though I don't favour the console they this what was right. Justice has done good. Justice will do good for Sony too. EDIT: Did that Article just prove that the PS3 isn't even at 5 million yet in the US?
It was 4,45 in May and in USA only. March TOTAL - 4,054 April PlayStation 3 187,1K May PlayStation 3 208,7K June PlayStation 3 405,5K With June data it`s now 4,86 mln. in USA. In NA(with Canada) it`s around 5,4 mln. PS3. =)
Wow its amazing how inaccurate vgcarts is. Someone take that site down
The Ford Focus is named the most successful car over the incumbent the Porsche 911 Turbo based on raw sales figures. Congratulations go out the folks at Ford who clearly have a superior product based entirely upon the number of units sold. /satire
Man.. Nintendo is just kicking a$$. No price reductions and still hard to get. Congrats.
it took Nintendo almost 2 years to catchup to the xbox 360 selling hundreds of thousands more per month.. without failing a single month... mmmm... now Sony and their fans have an idea of what it would take to catchup to the xbox 360 in the US... now all Sony has to do is instead of beating the xbox 360 by 10K-20K a month... they simply have to do what the wii did... beat the xbox 360 by 300K every single month for the next 2-3 years... that should do it.
Yup, I agree with you. Unless the PS3 is doing Wii numbers it will be awhile before it gets close. I'm wondering how many times we are going to hear this announcement? This is the third time people have proclaimed "The Wii is #1 in WW sales" I thought this happened months ago? Oh well, can't say I'm surprised it is a cultural phenomenon in the US and they've just spanked both MS and Sony this gen.
that's what happens when you have a casual system with a bunch of casual games. now excuse me while i go play my non-casual Gears of War for an hour or two, then switch to my non-casual MGS4.
Come on man, who cares if it is children and mothers buying the wii. A win is a win. Women and Children are just as much a statistic as the rest of us hardcore gamers. See, it's convenient for people to say nintendo isn't fighting the same fight as the ps3 and the 360. But the TRUTH is they are. All they did was bring the new demographic into the playing field. The demographic is the casual gamer. They are STILL videogames. And last I remember, ALL THREE companies make video games. I love sony first and foremost, but I have to tip my hat to nintendo. Like them or not, they deserved this win.
Selling a gamecube thats painted white,with a motion controller. Nintindo are geniuses lol. Vgchartz Does it again,they have the xbox sales at 11.89 in the US which is pretty much over 1 milllion consoles they have sold... Unbelievable.
poor people ps360 ftw
Stereotypes like yours keeps America down.
I support Sony but I must give credit where it's due. Nintendo did a really good job with the Wii. Congratulations. ...Screw you to whoever disagreed.
Now lets see if they can hold on for the remainder of this gen. (I bet they could)
I heard my friend say some guy Bought a WII(ONLY) because he never seen ones on shelves before, even though he didn't need it. Now he is selling on Craigslist. That just shows you how popular them sh^t are. The Wii did this by pounding Xbox 360 month after month(PS3 had no chance to keep up from the gates). That same kind of pounding will be needed if Sony wants out of third place.
That`s impressive. I`m not a fan of the Wii, but congrats to Nintendo.
I also congratulate the Nintendo Wii that was impressive i will wait until it reach 20m
Too many casual gamers.. Makes sense if Wii actually ends up winning overall but it also makes sense that 360 will easily out-do PS3.
Hopefully this will bring more games like Fatal Frame The Conduit Madworld Monster Hunter 3 FFCC Rygar Fragile TOS2 to wii :)
Congrats Nintendo! Though the wii is not my thing there well always be love for Nintendo from this long time gamer.
Great business plan, great marketing. When you make things right people always follow (almost all people, there always are the haters). Nintendo have learned their lessons, i hope the others will. But damn almost 11M (in fact probably more right now), love it or hate it but you can only be impressed.
