Nintendo’s sent Gamedaily some snazzy looking graphs proving that third-party titles do sell on its little, white and waggly machine.

Joystiq put on some graph-glasses and and broke things down for us all:

“For the first 20-months at market, which is pretty much what the above graph shows, this is the breakdown:

  • Wii: 60 million software units total, 56% are third-party units or 33 million (Nov. ’06 through June ’08)
  • Xbox 360: 35 million software units, 84% third-party or 29 million (Nov. ’05 through June ’07)
  • PS3: 25 million software units, 82% third-party or 20 million (Nov. ’06 through June ’08)”

Myth scotched. Wii loves third-parties. Loves them.
