I know this is a little bit old news but the news today is fairly slow today and I’m by myself and busy at work, also busy working on some reviews, for this week so stay tuned and bare with me. Anyway it looks like the Wii has calmed down in the sales department. In the country of origin (Japan) the PS3 (the true next gen console) has out sold the Wii for the second month in a row. I have a Wii and the last time I used it was like 3 months ago, theres just so much more on the PS3.
For the past two months, Sony’s PlayStation 3 has outsold the Wii. It hasn’t outsold it by the impressive margins that Nintendo was doing in Japan, when it was selling six Wiis for every PS3 sold, but Sony’s higher priced platform is currently holding its own. Since the Wii got so much press for its massive sales in 2008, we’d expect that Sony is enjoying its time in the sun.
In February, the PS3 managed to sell approximately 87,000 units, according to Media Create. That’s enough to put it past the Wii, which sold about 76,000 units. In March, however, Sony’s lead grew, with PS3 sales reaching 116,000, Wii sales declining to less than 70,000. News Source.
