On Monday, I posted "PS3 vs. Xbox 360 - Madden NFL 11 August 2010 Sales Ranks". Being that I already discussed the PS3 and Xbox 360 sales ranks in that post, this post will cover mainly the Wii version of Madden NFL 11.
I left Madden NFL 11 Wii's sales ranks out of the original chart, because I thought it was difficult to see small differences in sales ranks between the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions(plus the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions had the same MSRP), when the Wii version was included. With this post, I am including the Wii version's sales ranks in the same chart I used for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Madden NFL 11.
Madden NFL 11 for the Wii was released on August 10, 2010; the same day the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions were released, but with a MSRP of $49.99, instead of $59.99.
Was Madden NFL 11 on the Wii close to the sales ranks of the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Madden NFL 11? Let's take a look:

The chart above shows the August 2010 sales ranks for Madden NFL 11 on the PS3, Wii, and Xbox 360. Sales ranks were captured between August 2 and August 31, 2010.
Highs & Lows:
The highest recorded sale rank for Madden NFL 11 on the Wii was #43, on August 8 and August 9.
The lowest recorded sale rank for Madden NFL 11 on the Wii was #146, on August 2 around 11:30PM.
On the PS3, the highest recorded sale rank for Madden NFL 11 was #1, while the lowest sale rank was #30. For the Xbox 360, the highest recorded sale rank was #2, the lowest recorded sale rank was #23.
The Wii version of Madden NFL 11 had reviews start being published around August 9, just like the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions. The big difference with the Wii version's review score average though, is the number of "professional" reviews it has.
Madden NFL 11 on the Wii has a 76.50% review score average, based on just 6 "professional" reviews on GameRankings.com.
The PS3 version had 21 reviews on Monday, and the Xbox 360 version had 26 reviews for its average on Monday.
Here's how the Wii version has faired from Amazon.com customer review scores:
Madden NFL 10 on the Wii was reported to have sold 66,000 copies its first month; compared to 928,000 copies for Madden NFL 10 on the Xbox 360, and 665,000 copies on the PS3.
The August 2010 NPD data was released today, and Madden NFL 11 sold 920,800 copies on the Xbox 360 and 893,600 copies on the PS3.
The Wii version of Madden NFL 11 didn't make the NPD's "Top 10" for August, and it appears to have sold less than 100,000 copies, from the initial sales numbers in the NPD data. Perhaps in the next few days we will learn just how many copies were sold of the Wii version.
