Microsoft's XBox360 sales crash in August
I own a Wii, and I enjoy it when I have the time to sit down and use it. I voted for the Wii with my pocketbook against Microsoft and Sony, and for once it looks like I chose wisely. Helping my sense of correctness are the constant reports I keep reading of Nintendo's continuing success in the marketplace over Sony and Microsoft. For example, GameSHOUT reports that for the month of August:
- Nintendo sold 245,653 units of the Wii in the four weeks ending August 26,
- Sony sold 81,541 units of the PS3, and
- Microsoft sold 11,288 units of the XBox 360.
