Leaked: Wii Outselling PS3 in Sony's Third Week
Everybody is watching the Chart Track hardware sales figures far more closely than usual this week, as we all want to know one thing and one thing only - how well is PS3 selling?

Well, leaked figures today appear to show that Wii is 'pwning' PS3 in the UK. Apparently, PS3 sold 17,000 units in its third week on sale - with plenty of stock still on shelves. For its part, Nintendo's Wii sold 25,000 units with very limited stock on shelves.

We have contacted Chart Track directly for confirmation - or indeed denial - of these figures for the UK market and were given a strong, "No comment" by director, Dorian Bloch. It is SPOnG's understanding that the organisation has already taken internal action to plug any future leaks.

Software wise, as we informed you earlier, Sony's top first-party PS3 exclusives Resistance and Motorstorm (pictured) have both dropped out of the top ten this week. Although - to add some context - neither the 360 or the Wii had a console exclusive in the Top 10 in week three in their respective lifespan.
