Nintendo just announced that they sold 30 million Wiis – that’s one Wii for every unemployed American as of last February or, if you’re a little more chipper, one for every Facebook user in the world.
It took them 45 months – not bad by any measure – but we should also remember that Microsoft sold 41 million 360s in June and Sony sold 38.1 million. But this is the Wii’s party! Let’s celebrate with the Wii announcement from E3 way back when!
The funny thing I remember we made horrible fun of the name back in 2006 or so when it was announced and now we don’t give it a second thought. It just goes to show you that bathroom humor rarely survives the ravages of time.
