According to recent sales numbers released by Enterbrain, which tracks sales of videogames in Japan, Nintendo's little white console outsold all others in March. Approximately 265,542 Wii consoles were sold during the month compared to 81,579 PS3 systems.
Since the platform launched last year, Nintendo has been unable to keep Wii systems on store shelves – in Japan, America and Europe. According to company executives on all sides, Wii hardware shortages are expected at least for the next several months as the company continues to ramp up supply.
Sony dropped the price of PlayStation 3 in Japan a couple of months ago, which led to a temporary surge in sales, enabling it to outperform Wii for the first and only time since Nintendo's console debuted.
