Wii Play is one of Nintendo's hot cakes on the market: the collection of nine mini-games sold more than 10 million units in the United States alone, the company announced.

"Even if you believe people are buying Wii Play solely for the controller, that indicates that there are now more than 10 million people who have an extra Wii Remote controller in their homes. When added to the 12.7 million Wii Remote controllers that have sold separately, this reinforces the growing 'social gaming' trend we have been seeing where friends and family use their Wii games as a social hub – both in person and online," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing.
In the mean time, Nintendo's two consoles aren't doing too bad either. The DS finished February as the top-selling hardware systems, while Wii system sales were up about 74% over February 2008
From day 1 and until now, the Nintendo Wii sold nearly 19 million in the US. The Nintendo DS had even better sales: nearly 29 million.
