Wii Fit trumps Halo 3 sales in less than a year

Saturday, 21st March 2009 18:00 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Wii Fit will be one year old this May, and has already surpassed Halo 3 in US sales.

According to NPD numbers released yesterday, as of February 2009 the Nintendo title has sold 6 million copies in the US alone.

Halo 3′s sold 5.9 million since September 2007.

With such an influx of balance boards out there, Kotaku is quick to point out that developers will probably be lined up around the block to make games for it.

We’re not arguing.

    Sales of The Dark Knight DVDs will pass Halo 3 by this summer, too.

    WiiFit is not a game.

    Its about as much of a game as “Loads of old books on a cart” and “Little Britain The DVD Game”.

    And none of those Wii Fit owners use it for longer than 2 weeks. :)

    I have Wii Fit and still play it now and again. It’s fun, and it’s a nice addition to an exercise routine.

    Shocking, I know.

    Not surprising, considering the amount of fat people in the USA it was always going to be a huge (lol) success over there.
