It is official. The Nintendo Wii is the bomb, if sales numbers have anything to say about it. So far the Wii has sold almost 11 million consoles, 666,000 of which were sold in June of this year. Dang, that is a lot of game machines in one month. The report also states that "six out of the top ten games sold in the US were for Nintendo consoles.

In other cool Wii news, manga may be coming to the Wii as well. The big four Japanese manga publishers (manga being Japanese-style comics) have joined forces to bring comics to the already rockin' game machine.

As for the Jack household, we are hoping Santa will bring us Lego Batman and the strategy guide for Christmas.

Thanks to the always cool, Newsarama, for reporting important news.

Congrats to Ninty for re-conquering the industry and bringing gaming to the whole family. It's what gaming needed, to be sure. There's no denying they've changed an industry they basically created.

But as much love as I have for the Nintendo of the 80s and 90s, I'll stick with my 360 and PS3. They have the kinds of games I want to play, most of which aren't on the Wii. Plus, I'm getting an HD TV very soon. It probably makes a difference that I don't have kids, my family is too far away to visit and my wife isn't too much into gaming.
