Wii Play is best-selling game this decade

In the US, anyway. San Andreas second.

The NPD Group has revealed Wii Play is the best-selling game of the decade in the US.

As reported by IGN, more than 11.1 million copies of the game have now been sold there. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is in second place on 8.25 million, followed by Wii Fit (7.9 million) and GTA: Vice City (6.9 million). Mario Kart Wii rounds out the top five with sales of 6.7 million.

So what's the next step in Nintendo's plan to secure all the money in the world? Well there's Wii Fit Plus, which is available bundled with a balance board for $99. "Working out at the gym would be a lot more expensive than playing Wii Fit Plus," pointed out white trouser suit fan Cammie Dunaway.

And then? "Certainly the Wii Vitality Sensor is going to enable us to keep innovating, to keep taking another step in expanding the appeal of videogames. So we're excited about having it launch. I'm excited. And will be excited to share more details with you down the road." Exciting.
