Default Wii now officially surpasses 360 in US sales

http://kotaku.com/5026475/npd-wii-su...e-leader-in-us

Nintendo just broke word that the Wii has overtaken the Xbox 360 as the best selling current-generation console in the United States, with a 10.9 million strong install base, according to the NPD Group. That means Nintendo sold at least 700,000 Wiis in the country in June. We're waiting on final NPD numbers for all console manufacturers, expected later in the day. As of last month, the previous hardware champ, the Xbox 360, stood strong at 10.2 million units sold.

We have yet to get comment from Nintendo of America, but will assume for now that they're pleased.

Good news for Nintendo.

And I can think I can safely say that absolutely no one is surprised to hear this.

I found it funny that MS pointed out they were #1 in their press conference.

Well at least they weren't lying when they said it. I thought the Wii had already passed them when they made that statement.

Technically it had, they just didn't have any proof until a few hours ago.

Nintendo took the same route at their's too. Reggie was like "and we wouldn't be surprised if on Thursday, we took the lead in the American market in total console sales."

Good news for Nintendo and bad news for all of us as far as I'm concerned. Over the past few days I've become more and more adamant about saying Nintendo's Wii is not good for the hardcore gamer. Especially after their press conference with left us with little to chew on. Sell the PS3 because FFXIII is going multi? HARDLY, I'm half tempted to sell my Wii because there aren't any fucking games on it. I'm sorry if that hurts someone's feelings but from where I'm sitting, it's the serious reality of the situation.
