Nintendo has sold about 2.76m Wii consoles in Japan since the launch last December, while Sony has sold 970,270 PS3s since it debuted last November.

About 17,616 Xbox 360 consoles were sold in June.

Last week, Phil Harrison, PlayStation's head of worldwide studios, told US Game Informer magazine that pundits should not judge the success of the console based on the launch software line-up.

Them sales figures are absolutely staggering, and I think it pretty much confirms to all the doubters that the Wii is here to stay.

And I still havent bought mine as yet... they are starting to become more available now though, so I should be some day soon!
