30 Million Wii’s Sold To Date
The current frontrunner in video game consoles, the Nintendo Wii, has crossed the 30 million mark in the United States, according to Nintendo of America.
The Wii reached the milestone in just 45 months, which Nintendo says makes it the fastest-selling console ever.
"This milestone is another reminder that people want fun games they can play with others -- all at a value-minded price," Cammie Dunaway, marketing VP for Nintendo of America, told USA Today.
Worldwide, more than 73 million Wii's have been sold, which plants the console in a record-setting pace to become the best-selling video gaming console ever. That title is currently held by Sony's PlayStation 2, which has sold about 140 million units worldwide.
