New Super Mario Bros. Wii has sold more than 10 million copies worldwide.
wooow and on 1 console daam, suk on dat MW lool if this carries on it mite top 15 million in no time.
Ah... Reggie was correct. We laughed at him but it turns out it outsold MW2 on one console/PC.
If anyone thought a new 2d mario for wii would lose to MW2 when the DS version sold 20mil, they were deluding themselves to avoid the fact that the wii has totally won this generation. It's like admitting they hadn't listened to anyone who owned a wii or missed SNES.
When I was playing this game, everything about it seemed dated, just a few gimmicks here and there
why it did what it needed to do go back to its roots, maybe now sonic will do the same and once again be awesome again
it never left its roots did you not played the DS one, samething
Not sure why the feeling of "dated" matters if its an actual solid game...
That's right, let it out.
...with these numbers....duh, thats the ritual...
it is of corse a part of the greatest gaming series ever well to me anyways and it truly the only game all of my family can play
Every console has their flagship 10million seller exclusive. Oh wait... Good job Nintendo.
Yup Nintendo - Mario Xbox - Halo Playstation - Gran Turismo
nice to see fanboy disagrees
NSBW is a pretty fun game. Despite the recycleness and all that cheap stuff: the game is still fun. The co-op just made it more fun. Not surprised it sold this well. And at $50 no less.
it will have outsold MW2 on all platforms. Another 10 million+ Wii game, where is the competition?
Interesting point, there *is* no competition because the Wii crowd is not the same crowd that buys the other 2 well known consoles. don't think there ever has been a console that was not designed with gamers in mind (at least not a successful one), the Wii was designed to ensnare non gamers into gaming, to say that it succeeded would be a gross understatement.
They're hardly non gamers if they are playing a game console now are they? The Wii deserves respect, next gen there will be 60 million more people who might not have been gaming otherwise. Nintendo is keeping the industry alive.
I have a PS3 and Wii. They are both in competition for my $$. Most Wii owners have a 360/PS3. Stereotyping all Wii owners is bad, and a sign that shows superiority. When in actuality non Wii gamers are the very vocal minority. lls
played this at a friend's house. I stronly disliked it because it played like every other damned mario game. but hey, it's a first party title, so it's better than Miley Cyrus's "sing along" games as well as the abundance of movie games that crowd other mario titles.
Most games play like the games before them in that genre. RPGs, FPSes, fighting games, etc. Saying you don't like this game, because it played like the older Mario games, probably means you didn't like them either.
"played this at a friend's house. I stronly disliked it because it played like every other damned mario game. " So how come people never disliked halo 3 >>? Isnt that prettt much the same as the other 2. Or What about resistance..arent they similar...grand theft ?? Of corse its going to be similar to old mario games. Plus there hasnt been atrue platform mario game on a console since the super nes. So stop ya damn winging man!
thats some crazy sales in such a short time.
This game deserves Halo praise :)
lmfao. Precious Halo is NOTHING compared to Wii exclusives. Wii Fit is at around 20 million already. Now THAT'S what you call sales. So of course, by your logic, Wii Fit is the greatest game ever right?
The Wii sold damn near 4 Million consoles in December. Call me a hater (Which I'm not), but what else are people going to buy. That game has nothing in it's way in terms of quality, and with that many consoles on the market, it should be no surprise the game has those sales numbers. I have a PS3, and I'm confused, like most people about the appeal. I was at a friends house playing with the Wii, and was bored stiff.
Took one look at the first 9 minutes of Heavy Pain and then rushed out and bought this game.
hehh I lol'd.
If these were sales for a ps3 or 360 game this article would have 400 plus comments by now. Full of gloating fan boys. Congratulations nintendo. 2010= nintendo WIN
I grew up and moved on while Mario games didn't. Now if they throw in some x-rated version of Mario/Luigi/Princess 3P action..... I'm down for some mushrooms that'll show me some stars.....
"17 - meh.... I grew up and moved on while Mario games didn't. " Mario has brought something new to the table on every single console bar the gamecube. Nes - Mario 1 ...started it for the NES with the D-Pad platforming and Mario 3 ...finished it for the NES on a high with all new maps and items...and of corse the suits! Super Nes - Had yoshi (main draw for the game), plus an awesome map, a cape and millions of secrets to be found in a awesome HUB. Having yoshi was like a second chance..meaning for a little bit you felt invincible while eating your enemies. N64 - Mario 64 "grew up" in a sense. Defined 3D platforming. But i stil prefer 2D. It also show cased what the "analog stick" on a console should do. Gamecube - Nothing really here just a rehash and.. a water gun > > ? lol Wii - Mario galaxy made great use of the wii remote, but the real ace up the sleeve were spherical worlds. And if you are saying Mario games didnt grow up because you think they are childish for you now (ahh the "mature" gamers),.. then i seriously hope you didnt buy LBP with the sackboy doll. Because that would be a serious contradiction.
congrats nintendo! you put out one hell of a game ;)
My wife and I just finished collecting all the star coins in the game this afternoon. It does play like the old Mario games, which means it plays extremely well. The level designs in the game were basic, but well thought out and a lot of fun to play-through. I never thought there would be so much yelling and screaming over a video game, but there was with this one. It's a blast to play with another person. I can see this one selling extremely well, just like Mario Kart Wii and the Wii Fit games.
Must've been the red case. >.>; Come on, Nintendo, show us some black cases for those Mature titles here in the states. xD They look awesome. I kid about that reasoning, the game is superb and I'm glad it reached 10 million. xD Reggie looks slightly less like an ass, now.
Geez. I thought Reggie might've opened himself up for embarrassment, too. But he was right.
Too bad you can't play as Luigi in single player ....
I've yet to find a store the sells this game. :( I want this game sooo bad. Maybe I should try to buy this game online.
Mario rules platforming...period. :)
