    Xbox 360 topples Wii's dominance for September

    Yep. Thanks to the mega-hyped Halo 3 which sold 3.3 million copies, push the sales of the Xbox 360 to 527, 000 units while the Wii (even with the limited availability) manage to push only 501,000 units. So for the first time in 9 months, the Wii's sales figures has fallen to second place.

    Not a big deal though, considering the Wii doesn't really have a big enough game to compete against Halo 3 - YET. Mario Galaxy is just around the corner...more details here

    Woah thats way less than I was expecting...I mean Halos undenibly Microsofts biggest console shifter after all...

    I wonder how the Wii would do if there werent console shortages?

    More than doubled the PS3's sales all the same (or so says Kotaku..which actually shows the PS2 being the PS3...) so at least it hasnt fallen to last.

    That's kind of weak....I thought Halo 3 would destroy anything. The fact that was even close is surprising. Wii Play was the biggest seller! Wow.

    wait till xmas, thats when most kiddies who dont own a 360 will get theirs along with halo 3.
    and did you expect more console sales? 700,000 is more than half a million, thats a lot to me.

    i pre ordered SSBB at game stop about a month ago and they said they didnt have that many pre orders for halo 3 , they only had around 90ish pre orders and when i asked about SSBB they said so far they had around 200 pre orders , IMO SSBB will sell faster then any game yet with still around 4 monthes left the pre orders can sky rocket to a good 500/600 pre orders , whitch means more people are going to buy wiis , any ways im thinking about camping out the night b4 they sell it . what do you think

    Nintendo can't do massive production like Microsoft and Sony. They don't have any outside revenues, AKA Vista and Bravo. So it's not surprising that they will have production problems from now until next year. This also means more bad news for Sony.

    If Nintendo and Microsoft battle it out for first place this will continue to decimate the PS3 sales. If someone drops to a permanent second place it would be a lot easier for Sony to catch up.

    No no the numbers are great, just I expected a bigger gap is all.
