Nintendo's Wii sales empire is crumbling. For the first time in eight years, Sony's console sales outnumber Nintendo's, with 18.7 million consoles sold across the PS4, PS3 and PS Vita platforms compared to 16.3 million sales across Nintendo's Wii U, Wii and 3DS ranges. Not the best start to E3 week for Mario's struggling stable. [Nikkei]
We said this would happen. The console price war is finally on, and mercifully, there are no casualties -- only weapons of mass distraction. You won't have to shell out as much for a PS4, which we're all tankful for. And there end the warfare puns. Sorry. We're mortarfied at our attempts.
