Nintendo Wii passes Xbox 360 in total US sales

Nintendo has finally been able to manufacturer and ship enough Wii’s to the US to allow the console to push past the Microsoft Xbox 360 as the leader in next-gen console sales with 10.9 million sold as of June (compared to 10.2 for the Xbox 360).

In the month of June alone Nintendo managed to sell 666,700 units!

In the same month, the Xbox 360 sold 219,800 units and Sony’s PlayStation 3, currently in third place in total US sales, sold 405,000 units (thanks in no small part to the release of the latest Metal Gear tile, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots).
