Report: Nintendo Wii Will Cross 50 Million Mark Worldwide Sold This Month

Japanese financial news source Nikkei.net predicts that the Nintendo Wii will break 50 million in worldwide sales this month.

The Nintendo Wii went on sale in Japan in December 2006. This latest milestone means that the Wii will have sold faster than the PS2 did during its first three years when Sony achieved 50 million PlayStation 2 consoles shipped.
