Nintendo Wii and Wii U console sales 2007-2018

Partially due to the release of Nintendo’s newest console, the Nintendo Switch, sales of the company’s Wii and Wii U consoles fell to zero in 2018. During the product’s run as Nintendo’s flagship console, the Wii spawned some of the best-selling console games of all time, such as Wii Sports, Mario Kart Wii and Wii Sports Resort, each selling tens of millions of units.

Nintendo

Nintendo began as a small Japanese playing card manufacturer in 1889. Today, as one of the biggest names in the video game industry, the company ranks among the most valuable brands in the world and generates billions of dollars each year through the sales of its consoles, games, and merchandise.

Console Gaming

Magnovox released its Odyssey console in 1972, making it the first video game console ever made. Throughout the decades since, console gaming has exploded in popularity and become a massive global industry. Modern consoles regularly sell tens of millions of units throughout their lifespan, and the most popular products, including PlayStation 2, Nintendo DS, Game Boy, and Nintendo Wii, boast sales of over 100 million units.
