Enjoying a much greater supply capacity than Sony is, Nintendo's Wii has week 600,000 units sold in the week since its release. Totaling around $190 million in sales, Wii has already begun to carve a place into mainstream gaming, with the stock Wii sports title being one of the most popular. Game sales aren't slouching either, with Twilight Princess selling more than 454,000 copies, making it the most popular extra game to buy for the console.

Companies such as Ubisoft and EA have stated they are pleased with the Wii's initial success, and are looking forward to developing more titles for it. The Wii is still sold out in most stores, though shipments seem to come in quite often. Nintendo only made a minor comment about Wii compared to the PS3, stating it is a “phenomenal launch”. Sony's answer will be?

The Wii and PS3 are probably the most sold system on release because of all the games coming out for them and the long-waited event of a new gen system coming out from Sony because the PS1 / PS2 were released in the early 2000 and about mid 1990s so it's been awhile since a new system came out by them, That's why the Xbox360 didnt sell so much because it only released about 5-6 years after the Xbox
