Wii topples NES

This story pains my retro-gamer heart. Follow THIS LINK to and read that the Wii has now sold more units than the original Nintendo Entertainment System.

I may just be Talkin' 'bout my Generation here, but sales shmales. The NES provided more cherished bright new world moments than all other gaming systems combined. It's just too bad all those soccer moms following the Wii trend managed to usurp the NES' economic crown.

Besides, the NES had something it seems we'll never get from the Wii — Kid Icarus. Yes, it's a small strand of pride to cling to, but I'm clinging, damnit!
