VentureBeat has taken a long, hard look at the numbers and rendered a verdict. The site’s startling discovery: Wii is to PS2 as PS3 is to GameCube.
According to NPD data (U.S. only), Nintendo’s bid for the throne currently sits at 17.5 million units sold. At the same period during its legendary reign, Sony’s PS2 had only moved 15.9 million units.
Meanwhile, the PlayStation 3 is forging its own, decidedly less lucrative path with 6.79 million units distributed across the U.S. The GameCube, an odd duck in its own right, let Nintendo’s manufacturing facilities grow fat and complacent with a mere 6.75 million units sold.
As for the Xbox 360, well, you’ve probably already guessed; Microsoft’s second console is the spitting image of its first, moving only 18% more quickly at this point.
Any guesses as to who will snag the best horse on the merry-go-round next?

A Philadelphia man, Anwar Salahuddin, has been convicted of murdering his 17 month-old daughter after she pulled over his “Xbox console”. He was found guilty of third-degree murder and endangering a child and now faces between 23 and 47 years in prison.
As previously reported, Salahuddin stamped on the girl’s head, causing fatal injuries. Jurors rejected arguments that Salahuddin had confessed to the murder in order to protect the girl’s mother.

An American man is now facing a jury’s verdict after being tried for stamping on his infant daughter’s head after she tugged “at the cord on his Xbox’s controller, knocking it over.”
Anwar Salahuddin, who also uses the name Tyrone Spellman, is alleged to have stamped on the child’s head five times, causing fatal injuries.
Summing up yesterday, prosecuting attorney James Berardinelli said, “His entire life and daily routine is about playing the game. What do you think someone with that kind of obsession is going to do when it gets knocked over? What do you think is going to happen? The skull fractures on that baby are what happened.”
The jury is currently considering charges of murder and endangering the welfare of a child.

A man grown (sort of) rich chipping consoles and flogging PSP memory cards has been collared by trading standards, who found £12,000 in cash stuffed in an Xbox and three PS2s.
“I’ve heard it all now,” said Michael Rawlinson, managing director of ELSPA. “It never ceases to amaze ELSPA and its investigators the lengths criminals go to make money – and always to the detriment of honest, hard working businesses. I congratulate Tower Hamlets Trading Standards on bringing to an end this illegal business operation.”
That’s one example of pesky pirate scum that won’t be stuffing his Xbox full of money again. Great job, Tower Hamlets Trading Standards.
