    That's pretty good, I realize overall sales don't mean much for us as gamers but I never imagined that the Wii (let alone a Nintendo console again) would ever sell over 40 million units.

    yea most people bought the Wii because its the new "Tickle Me Elmo" as far as "oh my God what am I going to buy for Christmas" or atleast for most of that 45 mill came from

    wii has a lot of sales, if they keep this up they will shatter the ps2 record. ps2 has 124 mil in sales according to (http://vgchartz.com). good games available is more important to me, but i dont think its fair to say its just wii is just a novelty anymore.

    If the Wii was an album, it would be a Platinum record. (Platinum albums gain Platinum status after 1 million copies):smilewinkgrin:

    They have a long way to go to catch that number but based on upcoming games I think people who have either waited to get one/sold theirs will want one.

    So who knows?
