    A whopping ten out of this years top twenty games in Europe were on Nintendo formats. Six consecutive games on a Nintendo platform were placed between number two and number seven. Wii Sports Resort, Pokémon Black and White, Wii Party, Wii Fit Plus, Mario Kart Wii, and New Super Mario Bros were all in the top ten best-selling games for the first nine months of 2011.

    Ironically, only one of those titles were released this year. I doubt this order will stay put with all the big holiday-season releases happening, like the aforementioned Battlefield 3, Modern Warfare 3, Skyrim, Zelda: Skyward Sword, Uncharted 3, etc.

    Well what the hell? Even with the lack of 3DS games and new Wii games?

    How do you do it, Nintendo?

    Mario Kart Wii still sells that good? These Nintendo games are surely longtime sellers!

    Wait, none of the games in Operation Rainfall are on those lists. Does this mean it sold exactly like Nintendo said and they still won't localize that shit?

    In Japan, Sony just happens to take the top 20 chart with 12/20 titles :P

    But it is true that Nintendo has managed to top the charts with quite a few games. On the other hand, how many have actually bought Wii Sports or Sports Resort as a single game and not with the console? In Europe the console is bundled with the games and thus a sold console = sold game. Considering the cost of the Wii (payed 99e for my new Wii), that isn't much profit or is it? :3

    Congratz Nintendo for blocking the hacks! Oh wait... they did not!

    Who was saying that piracy was hurting the sales?

    I find it funny that the OP did not include the word "Europe" in the title. It's false advertising. Ahem, from the results found here, ( http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/38298/Just_Dance_2_FIFA_12_Currently_BestSelling_2011_Titles.php ) it's fairly obvious that it's topping in Europe only. In Japan, Sony's topping. In USA, it seems balanced, though Microsoft seems seems to have the most.

    Europe is Nintendo casual land, we all know that by now.

    Also misleading title, people would think it's worldwide.

    Stop trolling, you're just a jealous Sony fanboy. Jealous at how Nintendo are giving games to the masses just like Jesus with Christianity. Or Gordon Brown with the FSA to end boom and bust. Jealous I say.

    You guys do realize each of those games are included in bundles with either the wii lite or ds? I bet dollars to donuts, they are counting the bundled copies.

    What else would you expect? Honestly, if you look at the total sales of Wii Sports Resort for example, I doubt 30 million people would buy the game when it has been included in bundles. Let alone Wii Sports (a bit under 80 million sold when around 90 million consoles have been sold).


    -Qtis

    ps. New Consoles have both of those games bundled :3 Still what seems to amaze me is how well different kinds of Wii Fit titles are selling. Apparently the idea of playing a game while doing something with your body? :O
