After six and a half years on the market, Wii sales figures hit nine digits.

The Nintendo Wii has sold more than 100 million units worldwide since launching on November 18, 2006.

The console achieved this hallowed milestone between April and June of this year, according to Nintendo's latest financial results; it sold 210,000 units in this period. By comparison, its successor, the Wii U, managed just 160,000 units sold during the same time frame.

The Wii becomes the third Nintendo system and the first of their home consoles to cross the 100 million barrier, following the original Game Boy and the Nintendo DS.

Though the Game Boy one also includes the Game Boy Color (a separate system).

So if the Wii is still outselling the Wii U then why is everyone phasing out the Wii? My local Best Buy has gotten to the point where you can only get about 10 Wii games and it's smaller every time I go. I'm pretty sure they are selling their stock and never bringing in anything new.

As far as I know, (and Wikipedia seems to back me up) the original Game Boy (including Light and Pocket) sold over 100 million before Game Boy Color hit the shelves.

I honestly thought that they had already crossed the 100 Million mark.

My favorite console last gen deserves it. Such an underappreciated platform.

I think places like VGChartz might have listed it before it actually happened.
