The biggest and most jaw-dropping gaming milestone has just been smashed in the most arbitrary fashion. Wii Sports, the game bundled with the Wii, has beaten the long-standing record held by Super Mario Bros on the NES.
Super Mario Bros, also a bundled game, sold a staggering 40.24 million units. Wii Sports has sold, as of the 27th of December, 40.52 million units.
The astonishing thing is that number will grow as the gaming public still appears to have an insatiable appetite for Nintendo’s little white console with the peculiar control.
