Nintendo sells 600,000 Wiis

Posted by Kim Peterson at 3:42 PM

Nintendo reported today that it has sold 600,000 Wii consoles in the Americas since the Nov. 19 launch. If you include games and accessory purchases, that totals about $190 million in sales, the company said.

Looks like the best-selling launch game was "The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess," which sold about 454,000 units.

Sony said it would have 400,000 PlayStation 3 consoles in North America for its Nov. 17 launch. No word on whether the company was able to meet that goal.

Nintendo is planning to sell 4 million Wii consoles through the holidays. By comparison, Microsoft sold 5 million Xbox 360 consoles from its launch on Nov. 22, 2005 through the end of June 2006.
