Submission + - Wii sells 600,000 in 1 week! 75 percent get Zelda

Wowzer writes: "Nintendo today announced the Wii sold through more than 600,000 units in the Americas in just its first eight days of availability. That's a rate of nearly one per second continuously since the November 19 launch! From the article: "Including just first-party software and accessory sales, Wii instantly has become a $190 million business in the Americas. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, a favorite of avid gamers, already has achieved sales of more than 454,000 units in the Americas." What games did you get?"

The less time planning, the more time programming.
