Nintendo´s Wii console has outsold the PlayStation3 by a margin of almost four to one in the four weeks leading up to February 24th.
Japanese publisher Enterbrain released the following figures today, Reuters reports (via Yahoo News).
Of course, the Wii´s current lead is partly due to some key software releases, but Reuters see an underlying trend nevertheless.
The Wii's lead on the PS3 appears to be widening: In January, Nintendo's game console outsold Sony's by almost 3-to-1.
Nintendo's own "Super Smash Bros. Brawl" for the Wii became the best-selling software for the month in Japan, with 1.33 million units sold, followed by the "Wii Fit" home fitness game, which sold 309,311 units in the four weeks, Enterbrain said.
Last month in North America the PS3 almost caught up with Wii sales. Overall figures, though, (as estimated by both NexGen Wars and VGChartz) still clearly suggest the Wii as market leader worldwide with an advantage of three to four million units on the Xbox360 and roughly twice as many consoles as the PS3.
