According to NPD numbers, Nintendo’s collection of nine motion-controlled mini-games, Wii Play is the best selling game of the decade in North America, IGN.UK reports. With 11.1 million copies sold since it was released back in 2007, Wii Play has bested other gaming juggernauts, including Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Wii Fit, GTA: Vice City and Mario Kart Wii, in that order.
The other interesting bit is that Nintendo’s exercise title, Wii Fit is threatening to pass GTA: San Andreas for the second spot. Currently, Wii Fit is only around 350,000 units behind San Andreas, but Nintendo fears that the upcoming Wii Fit Plus could very well stifle Wii Fit sales, keeping the game locked in the third spot. Then again, some people might be put off by the $99 price tag for Wii Fit Plus and decide that the $89 Wii Fit will do just fine for the time being. Of course, until the official figures come in, it’s really anyone’s guess how the Wii Fit-San Andreas fight will end up.
Are you surprised by the top five sellers list? Do you think Wii Fit will eventually surpass San Andreas? Do you care?
