Nintendo Wii hits 30 Million in Sales in the US

Nintendo today confirmed that it has sold 30 million Nintendo Wii’s in the US alone.

This makes the Wii the fastest selling console in the US as it’s the quickest to reach 30 million. The next best console took 15 more months to sell that many units in the US.

For a console that does things slightly different to the other major competitors, it has certainly done well for it’s self. The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 are more focussed on power and graphics where as the Wii is more focused on motion controllers and family games. This seems to sit well with a good amount of people.

However, both Sony and Microsoft are launching new products such as the Kinect and Move that aim to move closer to the Wii. It will be interesting to see how sales go when these products are launched. We suspect the Wii will continue to do well.
