The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is the first Wii game that has sold more than 1 million copies in the Americas, making it the first Wii game to reach platinum status.
At last check, around three million Wii consoles had been sold, meaning that approximately one out of every three Wii owners has picked up the latest Zelda game. It was the only title to be sold out at many stores across the country following the console's November 19 launch, causing Ebay premiums to inflate the $50 game's price to $80 - $100.
The PS3, which first went on sale within two days of the Wii, has yet to claim a million-selling title, while the Xbox 360 recently set a new record for the platform with Gears of War, already having sold three million copies since its December 2006 release. Other platinum-selling Xbox 360 titles include Dead Rising, Lost Planet, and the $4 Burger King games.
