WiiFit: An Accessory Whore?

Nintendo isn't one to miss out on making a buck off of merchandising. Nintendo characters can be seen on everything from t-shirts to purses. The company that once started off as a trading card distributor is now distributing the highest and fastest selling console, the Wii. One of the top selling games for the Wii is the WiiFit. WiiFit gives players the ability to "exercise" via their trademarked Balance Board. Don't think for one second that Nintendo isn't going to milk the Balance Board and WiiFit for everything they can. There are WiiFit massagers, weights, and even water bottles, and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Kindda surprising actually. All games are from Nintendo.

There's landslides and then there's this. Wouldn't be surprised if the top 50 was mostly Nintendo games.

Paytaa2031d ago

The only other game's that cracked the Top 15 aside from Nintendo were Halo 3, Halo Reach, and Halo 4.

EddieNX 2031d ago (Edited 2031d ago )

Good. I adore Halo!! It's the only online shooting game for me.

The Wii was a beast! The entire top 10 selling more than 10 million units each!

FallenAngel19843154d ago

Just like the DS list, every game on the Wii's list has sold over 10 million. Not even PS1 and PS2 did that. That's very incredible
