Wii Play is number one? Most people bought it together with a Wii remote (which made it almost free if you deduct the remote price). So, it IS a bundled game.

But if bundled games are included in the list then surely Wii Sports should be number one. According to wikipedia it has sold about twice a many copies as Wii Play.

I agree that this list is botched. They obviously used some strange metrics that need to be mentioned for this list to make any sense.
