While the claim that the Nintendo Wii will never rival the the PS3 and Xbox 360 remains true in certain aspects, it’s an utter lie where it counts the most: sales.  According to the US and UK Amazon websites, their “Most Wished For in Video Games” has the New Super Mario Brothers Wii at the top of the list.

More surprising is that four Wii products fill the top four spots in the US, including the Wii console at its unchanged price of $199.99.  All the while, Modern Warfare 2 for the PS3 and Xbox 360 duke it out for the second and third spot in the UK.

  1. Seems like folk in the UK have better taste than these “americans”

  2. U.S. number 4: Wii Sports? Hope that’s “Resort” or there’s a lot of dumb people that think you can get the original at retail… It’s correct on the U.K. list. Hmmmm, conspiracy!
