Submission + - Wii surpasses 3 months of xbox sales in 3 weeks.

Whiney Mac Fanboy writes: "Nintendo's Wii has demolished Microsoft's xbox 360 sales in Australia, outselling the xbox's entire fourth quarter sales in just three weeks.

From the article:
The quarterly figures, released by games analyst Daniel Morse, show Nintendo sold 51,744 Wiis, whereas Microsoft sold 45,036 Xbox 360s. However, since the Wii only went on sale from December 8, its figures relate only to the three weeks to December 31, whereas the Xbox 360 numbers pertain to the entire three-month quarter.

Machines certainly can solve problems, store information, correlate, and play games -- but not with pleasure. -- Leo Rosten
