Nintendo's Wii console is still the number one console in the US.

According to the latest sales figures from March, Nintendo sold 259,000 Wii consoles. The $250 console has apparently been attracting new audiences like females, senior citizens and very young children.

Microsoft's sold 199,000 Xbox 360's in March and outpaced Sony's much hyped PlayStation 3 by far as it only managed sales of 130,000.

The PS2 is still a good seller and managed 280,000 units. All the bigger consoles were eclipsed by the Nintendo DS of which no less than 508,000 where sold in March. At the same time, Sony sold only 180,000 Playstation Portables. It seems that when it comes to playing games, the cheaper the unit, the better.
