The Wii Hits 35 Million Sold in the US

The folks in Microsoft’s games division are glowing this week, and rightfully so; Nintendo, however, isn’t going to allow them to own the spotlight this week. The company has just announced that 35 million Wiis have been sold in the US since November 2006, which makes it the fastest-selling game console in US video game history.

They continued the chest pounding by declaring that New Super Mario Bros. has hit 8 million and Donkey Kong Country Returns has hit 2 million in US sales.

That’s probably not as exciting as Microsoft’s mark, and it doesn’t have the fake-prestige provided by Guinness making the announcement, but it’ll probably provide a nice self-esteem boost, at least. Y’all can get to fist pumping.
