Japanese Sales Push Wii Past 360

According to VG Chartz, Nintendo's little white juggernaut has surpassed Microsoft's 360 in worldwide sales.

The Xbox still has a 2 million plus lead in the US over the Wii, however, in addition to a small lead in Latin American and Europe.

Wii may be beating the XBox but which system has the new Bioshock??

That game looks sweet enough to buy a console or upgrade my heap of a computer... Neither of which are likely to happen, but the idea gave me the excuse to post on your blog.

"Despite confusing consoles produced, shipped or sold reports, the Nintendo Wii is now the best-selling system worldwide. Its sales exceed that of the Xbox 360 despite Microsoft's console having a year-long head start. And it's way ahead of the PS3. From the article: 'Sales figures from each console's launch date through the end of July (and the end of August in Japan) were added up, with the Wii just barely edging out the 360: 9 million for the Wii, 8.9 million for the 360, and 3.7 million for the PlayStation 3.'"

Yeah... have to admit... bioshock has me tempted to pick up a 360. A helluva lot more than Halo 3 anyhow.

If it weren't for the HD TV I'd have to shell out for as well... I'd have one already.
