Nintendo Achieves Four Million-Sellers In Fiscal Q3

New figures reveal that four Nintendo-published titles, including Wii Fit, Mario Kart Wii and Wii Sports, achieved more than a million unit sales in the company's latest fiscal quarter alone -- down year over year from six games.
Four Nintendo-published titles achieved more than a million units of worldwide sales in its latest fiscal quarter alone, according to the company's third quarter briefing. Wii Fit, Mario Kart Wii, Wii Sports, and Nintendo DS game Pokemon Platinum Version all neared two million units in the three-month period that ended June 30, 2009, and Wii Fit accrued an impressive 3.6 million units in that time frame. The total count was down two from six million-sellers in Q3 2008. The three Wii games were also on last year's Q3 list, as was another Pokemon game, but there were no new games to take the place of Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Wii Play, both of which made the previous list. Overall, in Nintendo's Q3 2008, its million sellers moved an impressive 20.85 million units; in Q3 2009, they moved 9.42 million units. The precise sales numbers for the games are as follows (figures include hardware pack-ins): - Pokemon Platinum Version: 1.91 million (5.66 million to date) - Wii Fit: 3.6 million (21.82 million to date) - Mario Kart Wii: 2.00 million (17.39 million to date) - Wii Sports: 1.91 million (47.62 million to date)
