Game data collector NPD is reporting that Sony's PS3 outsold Wii by 50% in unit terms in the month of March, maybe the first time that has happened. Wii has been dominating PS3, and Xbox for that matter, since its introduction in 2006.
Experts are attributing the Wii air pocket to the fact that a couple of hot new games are not available on the Wii.
It could also be that in Japan, an early-adopter market, everybody that wants a Wii has one already. Time for Nintendo to shake it up.
Looks like a weak open as we wait for earnings.
