Wii top in US

Looks like the Wii has beat the PS3 and 360 in terms of sales.

"With the release of the latest figures from VGChartz, Wii has officially passed 360 in the Americas in lifetime sales as of the week ending May 24th, 2008, despite the 360 having an extra year on the market. Wii has reached 11.7M sales in America in its 79th week available; whereas, 360 reached 11.5M in American sales in its 131st week. PS3 is currently at 4.9M lifetime sales in the Americas after it's 80th week on the market. (For reference, the "America" region tracked by VGChartz includes all of North, Central, and South America.)

This week saw a boost in Wii sales due to Nintendo releasing additional supply to support the launch of Wii Fit. To date, Wii remains largely sold out in the US. Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime had gone on record in February as saying the Wii would pass the 360 in the US by June based on the strength of recently released hits Super Smash Bros Brawl and Mario Kart Wii in addition to Wii Fit (not to mention increased supply).

In Europe, Wii passed 360 last December on strong holiday sales. In Japan, of course, Wii passed 360's lifetime sales in its first week. Worldwide, Wii surpassed 360 sales in late August to become the current market leader. Wii has currently sold 26.7M units to date worldwide, while 360 has 18.8M and PS3 has 13.0M units sold."
