xcvxcv (on 16 February 2009)

Well,I've no idea about this.[url=http://www.aceugg.com]Ugg Boots[/url]Wellcome to out website. [url=http://www.ugg2all.com]Ugg Boots[/url]


ssj4gokusama (on 05 February 2009)

"Wii Sports now officially the most owned console game of all time!" pffff...this is not difficult, this game is sell with the console (in exception of Japan). If Sony had sold Resistance FoM on bundle with the PS3, this game was sold about 18 millions. and don't talk about the PS2 if sony would do this too, the game in the bundle would be at 120 millions.............think about it...


Kasz216 (on 02 February 2009)

Super Mario Sluggers? Really?


Araknie87 (on 02 February 2009)

Twilight Princess is a Gamecube game. It's a port for Wii. Please stop asking. XD


primogen18 (on 01 February 2009)

Wii sports isn't bundled in all countries...


blegs1992 (on 01 February 2009)

If Wii Sports doesn't count 'cause it's bundled, how come Wii sales and Wii Sports sales are a few million sales apart?


SuperiorX99 (on 01 February 2009)

Wow, this is an incredible list; Where's Twilight Princess? and Brain Age sales sparked up Dramatically, it actually surpased Pokemon Diamond/Pearl and is on its way to pass New Super Mario Bros. it's true that there is a bigger casual group than a hardcore group.


Bobbuffalo (on 01 February 2009)

I laugh to all of you that are bittered for the wii sports sales. You make me sad. Go Wii!


linlhutz (on 01 February 2009)

First off Nintendo didn't make the claim, VGchartz did. Even if they did, reread it... "As reported by VGChartz at the start of the month, shipments of Wii Sports have now exceeded those of Super Mario Bros (NES, 40.24 million) to make it the most owned console game of all time." Since when was Windows Solitaire bundled with a console?


phforme (on 01 February 2009)

Sorry Nintendo. We love you but counting a game included in with a console (the Wii) is not really a fair measure of sales. If you want to do that, then Windows Solitaire is BY FAR the most distributed, most played video game ever. Sorry to ruin your day.


koffieboon (on 01 February 2009)

There is a typo in the amount sold of Link's crossbow training. It should be 3.44 million, not 2.44


kowenicki (on 01 February 2009)

correct use of words in title... "most owned" Im pleased with that...


Tuulikk (on 01 February 2009)

Wii numbers... Well, a month has passed on 2009, that could be a reason why some numbers are off against these. But I guess some numbers have to be changed anyways.


dark_gh0st_b0y (on 01 February 2009)

it's games that sold 1 million since April 2008, so Mario Strikers/Zelda/Metroid and so on are not on the list it doesn't mean they are not million sellers


Snesboy (on 31 January 2009)

Go back to ioi. Brett the game doesn't have the same ring to it.


Kenology (on 31 January 2009)

We're talkin' consoles, Gilgamesh. You know that.


Gilgamesh (on 31 January 2009)

Wii sports is definitely not the most "owned" game. Minesweeper or solitaire anyone?


Kenology (on 31 January 2009)

"The list is made up of all games which have sold more than one million units since April 2008 and lists total sales from launch." Ok. Cool.


Kenology (on 31 January 2009)

Where the hell is: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree Super Paper Mario And where the hell is Phantom Hourglass on DS? What's goin' on with that list? Why so many omissions?


palancas7 (on 31 January 2009)

I think these are sales. Shipments numbers are always like 13m, 2.5m, if you know what I mean. Those are very specific. Also, they didn't say "shipment figures" like with the Wii hardware. These are "sales figures"


Daileon (on 31 January 2009)

In the fiscal report (where these numbers come from) it's shown the TOTAL sales (the ones on these news) and the sales from Q2/2008 TO Q4/2008 (Q1-Q3 FY08). The only games that appears on the list are the ones who sold more than 1 mln on the later category. Here it is: http://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/pdf/2009/090130e.pdf


arsenal009 (on 31 January 2009)

@shams i agree, very confusing, which idiot at nintendo decided to release a statement like this?


shams (on 31 January 2009)

Bit confusing. If they are including only titles that have sold 1m plus in the last 9 months - they should be showing sales figures for the same period (maybe with total sales after it). Anyone think that WiiMusic has *not* broken even? (and these figures are of course "shipment" figures - sales to retailers, not to consumers).

Guys, this is only a list of software that sold a million since April 2008.

Really strong 1st party, as always.

Stuff is not undertracked much, like Lafiel pointed out this is shipped to retailers numbers, not sold to customers.... Stuff that is listed over a million on VGChartz and isn't on that list probably need to be adjusted though...


Lafiel (on 31 January 2009)

where is the obligatory "it's not sales it's shipments" comment?


arsenal009 (on 31 January 2009)

Mario Strikers has sold 1.92 mln according to vgchartz. It's not even a mln seller according to Nintendo. Could vgchartz be that off?

"Most owned" is good wording, it eliminates all of the controversy.


Ashadelo (on 31 January 2009)

Zelda?


Phoenix_Wiight (on 31 January 2009)

kirby looks a little undertracked too


Red4ADevil (on 31 January 2009)

Thats incredible for SM64 DS after 4 years in the makret it sold 7 million copies.


DavidValbu (on 31 January 2009)

So...Vgchartz has Animal crossing undertracked by 500k?

I think the real story here is that we actually have an appearance by Brett!


johnsobas (on 31 January 2009)

mario strikers must be really undertracked in america, japan sales should be solid as they are in line with MC/famitsu.


dark_gh0st_b0y (on 31 January 2009)

i guess they include game that sold 1 million in since April 2008 , so Zelda, Metroid 3 and so on are not included


dark_gh0st_b0y (on 31 January 2009)

WoW, I'm happy Animal Crossing and Wii Music are actually selling more than what VGC says also, Namco's Super Sluggers sold 1.22 and has not yet been released in Europe, where the game should normally sell


dib8rman (on 31 January 2009)

So Twilight Princess is no longer a: Nintendo game/Wii game/ or sold over a million? I'm guessing that list is only accouning Q4 of 07 and all of 08.

[quote] Signalstar says: I had no idea Mario Super Sluggers sold that much. [/quote] +1


deathgod33 (on 31 January 2009)

i wouldnt say "purchased" considering that its bundled.


Signalstar (on 31 January 2009)

I had no idea Mario Super Sluggers sold that much.


Aidman (on 31 January 2009)

Go Nintendo Go Wii + DS don't stop.


Maynard_Tool (on 31 January 2009)

Wow, awesome numbers
