Now, don't get me wrong, it's the Wii game I play the most and I have some VC games and about 10 Wii games I've bought and I barely touch them compared to Wii Sports. But does it really count for the best selling game of all time to be a game no one actually bought, or generated any discernible revenue?
Yes, it was a pack-in game, but to me it was a free item. I don't argue with the amount of copies were given away, but to trot out that 40 million units were "sold" is a bit of a stretch. I would like to know how much revenue was taken in for those 40 million units. Unless I'm wrong, it's the best "selling" with the least revenue because it doesn't matter how many millions you multiply by zero dollars, it's still zero.

This is kind of a bunch of crap, because Tetris is actually the best selling game of all time if you count all the ports. It sold 33 million as a Game Boy pack-in alone, and think of all the mediums it's available in.
So now you're talking "Best Selling Video Game for One Console of All Time." Then you get into that whole, pack-in arguements thing, which applies to Tetris of course.
