Major Sales Feats for Wii and PS3

Plus, just how good did New Super Mario Bros. Wii do in its second week?

 
Wii has seen a sales surge of late. Is this Mario's doing?

Wii and PS3 are currently fighting a bloody battle for console supremacy. But the Wii still has quite the lead, as suggested by a report today at Famitsu.com.

The site posted some specially released sales data from Enterbrain today. What's the occasion? Oddly enough, both Wii and PS3 managed to cross major million milestones in the same week.

Wii crossed the 9 million mark, bringing its total from launch through December 13, to 9,048,012 units.

PS3 crossed the 4 million mark this week. It's total since launch is 4,020,563 units.

Famitsu also provided some indication of just how good New Super Mario Bros. Wii did in its second week. Following a debut week of a staggering 900,000 units, the game reached total sales of 1,401s,558 through the 13th. That means nearly a half million second week sales.

With a sales trend like that, both Wii and DS could end up with New Super Mario Bros. as their best selling title.
