Wii Outsells Everyone In The US, Xbox 360 Loses Breath
Nintendo keeps on opening champaign bottles and Microsoft might be thinking to drown its sorrow. The Wii took over the title of most-sold current-gen console this June, leaving Xbox 360 on the narrow second place seat.

Sony's PlayStation 3 is still far behind in the race. The console only sold 4,851,100 units, but the console is constantly gaining speed. As NPD points out, the PS3 sold 405,500 units, twice the number of Xbox 360 units that left the shelves this June (219,800).
Needless to say, the Wii is king on the monthly sales as well: 666,700 units. The number is a bit evil, but let's not worry about that for the time being.
Nintendo's triumph continued in the handheld department, where the DS was proud to report 783,000 units, while the PlayStation Portable only had to show 337,400.
