An updated look at 3rd party Wii sales
 
 
 There is no doubt that you've heard the Great stories of how 3rd party games just dont compete with Nintendo in sales and thats why the Wii doesnt have great exclusives... well about two years ago i looked into the subject and blew the doors open on how Nintendo actually had more million selling 3rd party games than all of the PS3 million sellers combined. Well here we are at the end of the Wii life cycle and i decided to see where did the 95 million world wide sold Console ended up witht he Wii U around the corner in comparison with its HD cousins. The Answer Might surprise you!

This is a list of 3rd party games that have sold at least 1 million copies on the Wii Proving that 3rd parties and the gaming media have had a view on low sales for the wii that has been widely blown out of proportion.
 
There are a TOTAL of 135 million sellers on the Wii and 100 of those are from 3rd parties, Thats right only 35 out of the 100 titles arent 3rd party games. To put that in perspective there are 142 million sellers on the xbox 360 and 120 of those titles were 3rd parties only 20 titles separate the 360 and the wii for 3rd parties, the ps3 has 136 total million sellers (only 1 title more than the wii), and 108 titles are 3rd party games... only 8 games separate the 3rd parties on the PS3 from the Wii... The situation in REALITY with an actual look at the numbers shows all three systems are A LOT closer than 3rd parties and the overall media would have you believe.

In conclusion there are definately some casual games on that list, but the reality is there are also a lot of great 3rd party games there that not only made its way on the wii but sold at least a million copies. That doesnt even include that games on the wii cost a fraction to develop for compared to 360 and PS3 and in most cases don't even have to sell over a million units to become profitable. So next time you read about how terrible it is to be a 3rd party developer and put a game on the Wii it might be nice to remind those people about this list.
