Shocker today from the sales database of Enterbrain. The Wii is one hot piece of hardware. How hot? Well, not quite as hot as the DS, but hotter than any other videogame system.
The Famitsu publisher announced today that, as of the 20th, the Wii has reached total sales of 5,019,337 units. The quintuple platinum feat comes in the system's 60th week of existence. In comparison, the DS took 56 weeks to reach the mark, and the PlayStation 2 66 weeks.
