Wow... So, then, I can assume that the Wii U has sold at least 10 million consoles?

A lot of uninformed parents are still buying this game thinking it's new and for the Wii U. That's what I'm assuming.

I never finished my copy of NSMB. I thought it was a mediocre side scroller. All it did was make me want to play Super Mario World instead. Great for Nintendo that it sold so well.

Sweet. Honestly, the Wii was the best console to play when alcohol was present. I remember being at a party with my best friend and everybody was on the Wii. There were so many fine girls there and we were drunk and playing Wii Sports. Some how in turned into a game of strip foam sword. It was a fun night.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> And what is the problem with that? Nintendo also made like $50-70 on each Wii sold, depending on region. They made money hand over fist on everything Wii.

<< LINK REMOVED >> It wasn't a bundled game in Japan or South Korea, otherwise it would have sales numbers of 101.15 million as opposed to 82.54 million. But still most people consider Mario Kart Wii to be the true biggest seller on the Wii.
