The best. In the WORLD.

As hardcore Nintendo fans we're all aware that the company is pretty freakin' special. However, it's always nice to have this kind of thing confirmed semi-officially, so the fact that highly respected consulting firm A.T. Kearney has decided that Nintendo is the number one firm in the world when it comes to 2008 sales and international performance is comforting, to say the least.

In a report published by BusinessWeek, it was revealed that out of 2,500 companies Nintendo ranked first, beating corporate giants Apple and Google to the top spot.

In case you were wondering, rivals Sony and Microsoft didn't even make it into the top 40.
