Wii Sports has surpassed Super Mario Bros. as the best-selling game of all time. With over 40 million units sold (obviously including bundles), Wii Sports is estimated to break the 50 million mark while resting comfortably at the top of the list. Check out the closest competition as we list the top 10 best-selling games of all time.
According to VGChartz, the top 10 numbers are as follows (in millions):
- Wii Sports, Wii – 40.52
- Super Mario Bros, NES – 40.24
- Pokemon Red / Green / Blue, GameBoy – 31.38
- Tetris, GameBoy – 30.26
- Duck Hunt, NES – 28.31
- Pokemon Gold / Silver, GameBoy – 23.11
- Nintendogs, DS – 21.37
- Super Mario World, SNES – 20.61
- Wii Play, Wii – 19.68
- Super Mario Land, GameBoy – 18.14
Coincidentally, the only non-Nintendo game in the top 15 is GTA: San Andreas, which certainly lends credence to the idea that maybe, just maybe, Nintendo actually knows what it’s doing.
Also, I have no idea why CliffyB (The Blaznats!) is playing Wii Sports in that picture.
