Nintendo Wii shipments in US top 30 million

Written by Fudzilla staff


In just 45 months
Nintendo has announced that it has shipped over 30 million Wii consoles in the US market since the launch in November 2006.

As the US has just over 100 million households, it appears that one in three of them have a Wii laying around, which is impressive to say the least.

Nintendo America executive VP of sales and marketing Cammie Dunaway claims that the Wii outsold every other game system in history and that it has managed to expand video gaming to new audiences.

Although the Wii doesn’t feature fancy graphics, speedy processors and hard drives like the Xbox 360 or Playstation 3, it has managed to beat the competition with its hands down. Moreover, unlike Microsoft and Sony, Nintendo didn’t even bother to cut the price much over the past 3+ years.
