Default Yahoo! quotes VGChartz on its FRONT PAGE.

The #1 story on http://www.yahoo.com/ is:

http://videogames.yahoo.com/feature/...e-ever/1276855

It calls Wii Sports the top-selling game of all-time explicitly based on VGChartz numbers.

A new low for their game coverage, as far as I'm concerned.

Yeah and even if I think they're spot on i'll say "i know it's yahoo" but they got a point etc.

But yeah, this is some pencil neck who's out of touch with gaming and googling.

A friend of mine emailed me this story. He was totally serious and sent it to me with this "didja know?" tone.

Non-gamers take Yahoo! seriously. And this was on Yahoo!. Too bad.
