Well, if that’s all 360 can manage after such massive sales of GTA IV last month, we get the sneaking suspicion summer may not be so pretty for Microsoft. Xbox 360 just outsold PS3 in April in the US, moving 188,000 units compared to PS3’s 187,100.

Wii and DS lorded over it all, destroying the competition with 714,200 and 414,800 sales respectively. It’s almost embarrassing. Dull list:

  1. Wii – 714.2K
  2. Nintendo DS – 414.8K
  3. PSP – 192.7K
  4. Xbox 360 – 188.0K
  5. PlayStation 3 – 187.1K
  6. PlayStation 2 – 124.4K
