Wii squeaks past Xbox 360

According to a Financial Times story called out by 1up.com which in turn was flagged by Slashdot, cumulative sales figures show Nintendo reclaiming the top console spot for the first time in 17 years.

The report says Nintendo has sold 9 million Wiis since launch, just ahead of the 8.9 million Xbox 360s since its launch a year earlier. Sony’s PlayStation 3 lags with 3.7 million units sold, although it could get a boost from another price cut that’s rumored to happen this holiday season and Sony’s plans to add video recording and downloading features.
