Adored by players from the moment it was announced in 1998, the system was truly ahead of its time. Even today, on the 15th anniversary of its debut, the Dreamcast has a fan base more loyal than many modern systems.
Nintendo announced Tuesday that it has now sold 30 million Wiis in the U.S. alone. That milestone comes just 45 months after the device went on sale. To put that into perspective, the PlayStation 2, the industry’s best selling home console, has sold more than 50 million units – but took over eight years to do so.
