Wii leads next-gen in Mar.

The Nintendo Wii continued to dominate next-gen console sales in March, says Newsfactor. According to figures released by the research firm NPD Group, approximately 259,000 Wiis were sold in the US last month, raising total 2007 figures to 1.03 million. Conversely, Microsoft's Xbox 360 sold 199,000 units, and the Sony Playstation 3 trailed behind at 130,000. NPD helped confirm earlier this month that the Wii has remained the next-gen leader since it began shipping November 19th.

It is not however the bestselling console overall: that title belongs to the Playstation 2, which in March sold 280,000 systems, despite having been launched in 2000. The platform was also home to the month's top game title, "God of War II," which shipped 833,000 copies. "Wii Play" ranked second at 644,000.
