Twin Galaxies Hall Of Fame

Brent Dolan #1 of the #1 game


Can You Be #1 on the #1 Game Ever?

Nintendo has beaten their own record, as Wii Sports supplants the original Super Mario Bros. as the best selling game in video game history!

According to video game sales tracking website VCChartz, Wii Sports, released in 2006 with the launch of the Nintendo Wii, has topped the 40 million unit sales mark to edge out a similar number run up by the original NES version of Super Mario Bros, first released in 1985.

While both Wii Sports' (and Super Mario's) numbers are thanks in part to being included with bundle sales of their respective systems, the number is not to be taken lightly. Wii Sports is not included in Wii bundles in Japan, for example, but was named the Best Selling Game of 2007 in Japan nonetheless, with a 45% attach rate to Wii system sales in that country.

Twin Galaxies has already crowned numerous champions on the various Wii Sports titles, and given this new lofty sales figure, Twin Galaxies is now challenging gamers to see if they can beat the current champions to become the top record holder on the top selling game of all time.

Can you top the 14 second Fastest Knockout World Record currently held by Troy Whelan? Can you join Carl Aspinwall, Brent T Dolan, and Marc Cohen as a perfect 300 point bowler? How about Victor Delgado's remarkable World Record score of 78 on Returning Balls on the tennis portion, or topping the 18-run Biggest Blowout in Baseball, currently held by Lance Eustache?

At the bottom of this article is the direct link to all current Wii Sports World Records here at Twin Galaxies, in both the NTSC and PAL regional formats.

See if YOU have what it takes to beat these champions at the top selling video game ever, and submit your score to a Twin Galaxies referee today!
