Nintendo recorded the most successful across-the-board holiday performance in U.S. video game history.
The Nintendo Wii sold more than a million in just the 44 days between U.S. launch and year end. Every Wii available at retail was gone.
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess was purchased by an 86% of Wii buyers, or more than 900,000 games for that system alone. That is quite a sick success. Wii owners purchased an average of three additional games. Nintendo also sold 1.5 million extra Wii controllers. I guess that number counts Wiimotes and nunchuks extra.
The Wii is still a hard find. Check these deals.
Nintendo also sold another 1.6 million Nintendo DS in December alone. With that the Nintendo DS achieved full year sell-through of 5.3 million.
