Financial Times have made it official, Nintendo Wii is the best selling next gen console. With numbers aggregated from Enterbrain (Japanese sales), NPD (US sales) and Gfk (Europe sales), its been determined that Wii has sold 9 million units, Xbox360 sold 8.9 million and PS3 trails last with 3.7 million units sold. The figures are for actual units sold to consumers, as opposed to the manufacturers preference to using quantity shipped to retailers.

To make the numbers seem more impressive, Wii was launched one year later than the Xbox360. Moreover, Xbox360 is not doing too well in the land of the rising sun, Japan.
