More shocks from the world of Wii today, as a Nielsen report has shown that Wii is the least used of the three current generation consoles.

Wii had an average usage of five days in December last year, compared to 6.8 for the PlayStation 3 and 7.1 days for the Xbox 360, according to the Nielsen’s State of the Video Gamer paper.

The average usage session was 58 minutes for Wii, while PS3 was played for 64 minutes on average. Xbox 360 was most-played, at a general 78 minutes stretch.

Edge showed last night that Wii has by far the worst games of any of the home consoles, judged by review score.
