New Super Mario Bros Wii is presently beating Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (the greatest selling non bundled home console game of all time) in lifetime sales based on the number of weeks NSMB Wii has been available.

Please Nintendo, PLEASE don't ruin this games sales achievement by announcing an "official console bundle" with this game to make the sales invalid!

Sorry, but it will outsell both versions of MW2. It will take several months (at its current rate it will overtake MW2 in about September or October), perhaps all year, but it will eventually overtake MW2.

Once and for all: Reggie was speaking of one version (probably 360) in one region after NPD data (so probably Americas). NSMBW outsold PS3 version in every region, and WW also X360 version. But it has not yet outsold X360 version in the Americas.

Great sales in America continue but no surprise. Starting to finally get bigger shipments of this game at the Gamestop I work at but selling out of those as well (although not as fast). Were getting shipments of about 10-15 but now about 20 at a time.

Also I think what we've noticed for others is even though it isn't a colossal hit in the UK (although still big) the rest of the European and Other regions it seems to be that big hit haha. Can't really judge the NSMB Wii sales totally off UK charts which is unusual for most big Wii games. But NSMB Wii will still continue to sell quite well in the UK for a long time.

The motion controls are kind of annoying. Especially in level 7-3 (I think) where you have to move the platforms left to right.

Sometimes I move the controller slightly to the side mid-jump and the platform flies from under Mario's feet. Other times I accidentally spin attack while on a platform and it moves while I spiral downward to my death >_>

Beating MW2 on the 360 and PS3 combined will be a challenge, but it's definitely doable. Even for the holiday season, these are breathtaking sales results. Mario Kart Wii has flown to 19.7 million in a year and five months when this game's sales look even stronger.

If sales of this game stay strong and the nostalgia that comes from this game is as effective as I think it's going to be, this game could sell 21-23 million in the time it took MKWii to sell 19. Since this game has probably about 2 years to sell (second-generation Wii is likely late 2011) it definitely has the time to do it.
