*A bittersweet accolade for Nintendo; "The Wii has officially sold more units than the original NES!" Having sold 67 Million units, the Wii is now the #1 Selling (non-portable) Video Game System for Nintendo, in their history of making colsoles. The NES record stood for nearly 20 years.
Since the Nintendo Entertainment System came out in 1983, it has been the model console, not only in the video game community, but through pop-culture aswell. No Nintendo console since (portable's not included) has surpassed the total number of Nintendo Entertainment System's sold. (62 Million) Not the Super NES.. not the N64.. not the Virtual Boy.. certainly not the Gamecube.. -none of them. In only 4 short years, the Wii eclipsed a number, that took the NES 10 years to achieve.
With great original games (including Wiiware games) featuring the motion-control sensor, which changed the face of gaming.. not to mention the ability to play practically any oldschool game on nearly ANY prior system, is the Nintendo Wii the greatest video game console ever?
