Nintendo is very proud of itself. The multinational gaming corporation has sold over 30 million Wii consoles, and that's just in the United States. According to Nintendo, this establishes Wii as the fastest-selling console in the history of video games, as it reached the 30 million-sold milestone 15 months faster than the next best-selling console.
Say what you will about Nintendo's commitment to hardcore gaming, it's pretty much undeniable that Nintendo has expanded the entire market of games to previously un-gamed segments of the population.
“More than any other video game system in history, Wii has expanded the world of video games to new audiences,” said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing in a statement. “This milestone is another reminder that people want fun games they can play with others – all at a value-minded price.”
Can we call Wii the winner of the "console wars" now?
