Wii Sports, the all-time best selling video game according to Guinness World Records, was not on the list. For most of the game’s existence in the US, it was bundles with the Nintendo Wii system which is obviously counted towards the numbers GWR came with. It has recently became a stand-alone game while Mario Kart Wii becomes the new packaged game for the Wii system.

Do you guys agree with NP not including copies of Wii Sports that came with the Wii in these tallies? What about Guinness including the same thing in theirs? Let me know in the comments.
