With this quarter’s financial results published, Nintendo does have some good news to report. The Nintendo Wii has sold 100 million units worldwide as of today.
Since the Wii’s release in 2006, the system has shifted 100.4 million units with 87.273 million games sold. According to the just published financial results, Nintendo hopes to sell another 2 million units by the end of its fiscal year in March 2014.
Whilst it’s unlikely to reach the lofty heights of Sony’s PlayStation 2 at 150 million units, this is still a pretty staggering result given the reputation the Wii has gathered over the years as a system with little third party support.
Its successor though, the Wii U, just reported some pretty awful sales from the latest financial quarter of 160,000 units sold worldwide.
