Want to know the real reason why Nintendogs
is one of the most "important
" games? Because everybody has it. Nintendo is reporting that 13.6 million copies of the game have been sold worldwide. Compare that to Brain Age
and its sequel, which sold a combined 12 million copies. We knew Nintendogs
was massive, but we kind of didn't realize how massive. As we alluded to in the title, we wonder
how many of those copies are still getting daily use.
Another interesting tidbit from the financial report: Nintendo made 2.1 billion yen (about $17.5 million) last year from their non-video-game products, including playing cards. And before you ask, they probably did
as a video game.
