U.S. sales of Microsoft Corp.'s (MSFT) Xbox 360 games console beat those of Sony Corp.'s (SNE) PlayStation 3 in March after Microsoft addressed earlier supply problems.

Microsoft sold 262,000 units of the Xbox 360 in March, according to figures from research firm NPD. Sony sold 257,000 units of the PlayStation 3 console.

Microsoft said in February that shortages of Xbox 360 prevented it from meeting U.S. demand.

Both the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation were significantly outsold by Nintendo Co.'s (NTDOY) Wii console, which sold 721,000 units in March.

why is it that instead of quoting a NEWS that says Nintendo Wii Sales Trounce Xbox 360, PlayStation 3

you quite conviniently quote one that glorfies the silver medallist and coviniently relegates the Gold medallist to a small footnote in the article

Wii sold 721,000 consoles in March, ie more consoles than XBOX 360 and PS3 combined and barely overtaking Wii when you add the PSP

Now thats some serious Azz kikkin by Nintendo

and you go about glorifying mediocrity :rolleyes:

Wii was beating Xbox 360 and PS3 every month. But for the last two months, PS3 was beating the 360 and Microsoft said that's because of supply problems, while PS3 fanboys said that 2008 is the year of the PS3. So Wii beating 360 and PS3 is nothing new!!!!! :D

I think in the coming years,PS3 can trump XBOX 360(considering its more powerful).This increase in sales must be due to the recent price reduction & GTA 4 exclusive release.
