Wikipedia's source refers to the units sold as of today (the current era). We just focus on the units sold when the NES was actually in regular circulation. Also, we've already got the info on SMB's sales.

Wait, so let me get this straight. The NES sold 50 times more copies when it was out of circulation than when it was in circulation?

That can't be ture.

That statement on the NES page doesn't cite any sources, so I doubt that it's true. If the NES was supposed to be so popular, then how could it sell less than 2 million units before it was discontinued?

Ok, I think that whoever put the information in the article forgot a number, so I fixed and sourced it.
