Nintendo sells over 1 million Wii consoles in Canada

Nintendo is celebrating a milestone with Wii sales, as the console recently managed to break one million units sold in Canada. While Nintendo's worldwide sales of the Wii are around the 23 million mark, having over a million sold in Canada is encouraging to Nintendo and the future of the Wii. Canada has a population just under 34 million, so you can assume that one out of every 34 Canadians now owns a Wii.

That's a pretty good ratio, and has the Wii one-upping the PS3 and Xbox 360 in Canada still. It also demonstrates a considerable growth in gaming adoption in Canada. These sales figures are a welcome bit of good news for the company, as opposed to the discovery last week that Nintendo was once again getting sued over their incredibly popular console.
