friggin Nintendo. At least GTA4 and COD5 are up there for the 360 and PS3.

Yeah be mad at Nintendo but its because of them that COD5 made the list at all. Only one of those games wasnt on Wii.

techie3605d ago to see the COD breakdown by platform.

360 - 4,690,000

PS3 - 2,770,000

Wii - 655,000

It's all thanks to the Wii.

I don't really understand the significance of those numbers...

Voiceofreason3605d ago

Doesnt matter what the break down was. Had it not been for the units sold on Wii another game would have taken its place. Jtucker, what I said was pretty simple. I dont see how you could be so confused by it. Oh but thats right you're a die hard Nintendo fan with that Mario avatar right? Yeah thats why you trash everything about Nintendo.. There is a word for people like you.

IN your chance to hate something else Nintendo did you not notice that only one of those games wasnt on Wii? Had it been on Wii its sales would have been higher.
Oh and where are you getting the COD5 numbers? VgChartz? They've been wrong on a lot of Wii game sales. Undertracked Shaun White, [email protected], De BLob and a few others this holiday. They've tracked so many Wii games wrong its not worth going there until we get some official numbers from developers and VGchartz makes their numbers accurate.

Thing about this list is Wii exclusive single platform titles outsell hyped multiplatform titles. That is insane.

Voiceofreason3605d ago

Notice how people are already trying to spin it...

Some folks can try to go the merry-go-round route if they want, but sales are sales. You can't argue with numbers. And the numbers favor the Wii.
