Submission + - Wii's destiny fullfilled as the new market leader

Xlipse writes: "Video Game Chartz" (http://www.vgchartz.com/) issued a press release today laying claim to the Wii as being the new top dog in the console market.

From the press release: "Two years ago, very few analysts would have predicted the Nintendo Wii would be market leader this generation against the established Playstation and Xbox brands. But analysts can be in error: Vgchartz.com data, which is based on sample data from retailers all over the world indicates that the week ending August 23rd Nintendo's Wii (which was released one year after the Xbox 360 in November 2006), currently standing at 10.57 million consoles sold, passed Xbox 360 lifetime sales of 10.51 million units, making Nintendo the new market leader in both the home and handheld videogame console businesses."
