According to the numbers reported by NPD, Nintendo’s collection of nine motion controlled mini games, Wii Play is, in all of North America, the best selling game of this decade. There have been 11.1 million copies of this game purchased since it was released in the year of 2007. Wii Play has out sold other huge games including Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Wii Fit, GTA: Vice City and Mario Kart Wii, in that order.
Also, Wii Fit, another game produced by Nintendo, is about to pass Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for the second highest selling game of the decade. As of right now, Wii Fit is only 350,000 units behind Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. However, the upcoming game Wii Fit Plus is most likely going to make Wii Fit sales suffer which would keep the game stuck in third place. Although, since Wii Fit is ten dollars cheaper than the upcoming Wii Fit Plus, maybe gamers will think that they might as well go ahead and buy the cheaper one as both of them will do basically the same thing.
What is your opinion on the matter? Are you surprised about the top three best selling games? Who do you think will win the battle for the number two spot?
