Surprise Surprise: Xbox 360 outsells Wii in September

I can’t quite put my finger on it, but somehow, the Xbox 360 outsold the infamous Nintendo Wii for the month of September. Seeking Alpha reports that 527,800 Xbox 360 consoles were sold during September, compared to the Wii’s 501,000. Meanwhile, everyone’s favorite console, the Playstation 3, took a slight slump in sales, turning out only 119,800 units for the month.

Still, despite the numbers, I’m having trouble figuring out why everyone went out and bought an Xbox 360. Maybe it was Fifa Soccer 08. That’s a tight game. No way it could be Halo 3 though, no way. That game is the same as the first two! You shoot stuff and call everyone on Xbox Live a douche, big whoop.
