But the Wii is a fad. People buy it then don't play it. It just sits their collecting dusts. Wait until Kill Zone 7 or Uncharted 6 comes out, it's going to pwn the Wii. The Wii is not competing with the HD consoles. It has last gen graphics. Vgchartz is unreliable. Oh wait, this isn't vgchartz. The Wii is for only kids and centurians, no serious gamer would never play that cheap toy.

Sarcasm off.
