That shouldn't count since it's a pack-in. If PS2 had a pack-in game it would be over 100 million.

Twizlex3510d ago

True, but Sony didn't pack in a game so...

Cookigaki3510d ago

Yes, Nintendo could take out Wii Sports and sell Wii for $199 but they won't. People think it is free game but they are paying for it.

Sony PlayStation 33510d ago

Wii Sports is more like a Wii Motion Tutorial than a game. It's still fun though

McDaygo3510d ago

Super Mario Bros was a pack-in game too.

Panthers3510d ago

It should count because Mario was also a Pack-in. Not that I like Wiisports, but if you dont count that, you cant count Mario.

0verdrive3510d ago

this does seem like a hallow victory, i mean, do they even sell wii sports alone without the wii? assuming that they dont even sell a wii without the game, the attach rate of that game to the console is going to be 1:1. no game has ever done that, or ever will.

i honestly dont think that wii sports should count... its just so... i dunno... cheap.

Crazywhitie3510d ago

I agree this story shouldn't have been written... you tell me One Person that Bought a Wii For Wiisports... the Wii is 250 WiiSports is FREE.. therefore it hasn't sold anything

The Great Melon3510d ago

I don't think you should count Mario or Wii Sports....

Tarasque3510d ago

Sorry packaged in games does not count in sales in my book. All those top 10's are Nintendo from old and DS games. You don't see any N64 games up there and you definitely don't see any gamecube games up there.

salgoods3510d ago

sales DO = quality of a game. according to 360 fans, since their games sell more than PS3's, PS3 doesnt have any good games. yeah right...

BRG90003510d ago

It takes talent to bring Xbox vs. PS3 fanboyism into an article about neither console. Well played sir.

Voiceofreason3510d ago

Sony wouldnt pack in a game. They are the reason that games are not packed in today. They'd rather you pay for the game.

Odd though that you consider it wrong of a company to give you a game for buying their product and think a company needs recognition for not giving you a single thing for supporting them. Good ol Sony fans.. I wouldnt expect anything less.

"Yes, Nintendo could take out Wii Sports and sell Wii for $199 but they won't. People think it is free game but they are paying for it."

You do realize Japan (a big slice of the pie) doesnt pack it in with there systems.

Again, plz using there "assumptions" as fact.

Wow. I'm actually almost surprised that Super Mario stayed on top as long as it did, but I guess nobody else bundles games like nintendo.

Vault Boy3510d ago

Yes, but imagine if they did. If Sony packaged a game, even a crappy one, with every PS2 it would be at the top of the list. It really doesn't count IMO because people aren't buying the game, they're buying a Wii.

Milk is for Babies3510d ago

I get what you're saying and I kinda agree, but I wouldn't really say it "doesn't count". The other guys could do it too if they wanted.

Twizlex3510d ago

Yeah, and it only makes sense that a bundled game dethrones Super Mario since it was also a bundled game.

KobeT243510d ago (Edited 3510d ago )

What have we done...

Do you realize the list is dominated by Nintendo titles.

Vault Boy3510d ago

They shoulda never gave you b*tches money!

Vault Boy3510d ago

Why the disagree? I was just making a Dave Chappelle joke.

meepmoopmeep3510d ago

and going by some people's logic
sales means it's the BEST GAME EVAR!!!


Twizlex3510d ago

Wait, are you trying to say it's not? Sales DO equal greatness, and review scores also determine "AAA" games... and the Wii can cook you breakfast.

If you believe any of that, I have some beans I'd like to sell you...

Bob Dole3510d ago

Bob Dole will take the beans over Wii Sports :)

Bundled shovelware. Lol Nintendo.

Sarcasm3510d ago

Not really. Wii Sports is the best game on the Nintendo Wii.

I mean it literally with no sarcasm (despite my name)

Ivix3510d ago

@4.1 I guess you've never played any other Wii game before?

Mutley4163510d ago

WOW!!!...ummm How many has WOW Sold!!!
