Nintendo: Wii Outsells Xbox 360 In U.S.

LOS ANGELES - July 17th - The Wii has officially outsold the Xbox 360 in the U.S., making it the number-one console in America, Nintendo said Thursday.
"After just 20 mos, Wii is the new console leader in the US @ nearly 10.9 million units, says NPD 2day."

That's a text message that Nintendo of America just sent to journalists' phones, knowing they'd be away from their desks covering E3. (The company used the same delivery medium to announce the Wii MotionPlus controller on Monday.)

The news comes in advance of the official release of the U.S. sales data for the month of June, which is scheduled to be released later this afternoon by the NPD Group.

It's worth noting that at Microsoft's press conference Monday, Xbox exec Don Mattrick told the crowd that the Xbox 360 was the top-selling piece of game hardware in the U.S. -- knowing full well that this would likely cease to be true in three days' time.

It doesn't surprise me one bit, Wii was always the better console in my opinion.

That actually surprises me a lot - I thought PS3 would be winning.

PS3 has more features, better graphics, and more games.

Not enough exclusive games (Right now) to make me want to get one, also 360 has many good features at a good price too. Though Sony did lower their price...

PS3 may have more options, but Wii is a blast to play. PS3 isn't as fun to play as the Wii. I'm sticking with the Wii, I can't wait for Wii 2.0 or whatever they call the next one. Nintendo has always been innovative with their products. Just need to improve the graphics.

And some of the crappy 3rd party games coming out on the Wii.

Shrukain22 is an unknown quantity at this point

You know the Wii has been outselling the 3560 for about 4 months now...Is this when it's "official" or something? You know if the Wii had 2,000 more copies sold, then it would be outselling the 360 and PS3 combined? Yeah, that's how popular it is in US...
