The Global Console War: Latest Battle Statistics
Nintendo?s Wii edges ahead of Microsoft?s Xbox 360 in terms of numbers of units sold worldwide this week, with an estimated 10.57 million Wiis sold since launch in November last year, compared with 10.51 million Xbox 360 units sold since that console?s launch a year earlier in November 2005.

Wii has outsold 360 by a ratio of 2.3:1 since its release, with 3.46 million Wiis already sold in its homeland of Japan compared to a paltry 430,000 Xbox 360s. The 360 continues to dominate the American market, with 6.73 million sold there to date, compared to 4.24 million Wiis.

PS3 currently trails in third place overall, with 4.32 million global sales. Third place! Ha! Geddit?

In case you really don't know and weren't being sarcastic (just being Devil's Advocate...), the 'third place' was the marketing slogan for the PS2 during its launch period in Europe (well, certainly the UK).

Surely it should try and reach fourth place now with PS3? You could easily manipulate the charts and whack the DS in there somewhere. ;)

As for Nintendo, I hope these 'hardcore' releases will satisfy that burning desire I've been holding up inside now for some good old fashioned Nintendo action. I'm starting to wonder if my Wii's really just for burning money on games I already have...

Nintendo is the weakest console with the worst selection of games. Just goes to show how crap some people are at judgement. PS3 has outsold the 360 in Japan and Europe, the only place that the 360 is ahead of PS3 is in America.

PS3 > 360 > Wii(Sorry, but it's just AWFUL.)
