Wii prints money, sky is blue, 3 million+ consoles sold

Like any crazy rich corporation, Nintendo celebrated the new year and closed out the old by releasing sales figures. As exciting as that sounds, things actually get more exciting once you look at the worldwide sales numbers for the Wii. You know, the gimmick. The gimmick that sold a combined 3.19 million consoles worldwide since launch a month and change ago?

I don’t know what kind of profit that number sold turns into (writer, not a mathematician here), but as my pseudo-European friend from Citibank says, it’s has to be rewarding, very very very rewarding.
