PS3 outselling Xbox 360 in Europe

But Wii is beating both, as always.

Nintendo has released figures for 2008 hardware sales in Europe which reveal the PS3 is outselling the Xbox 360 - though the Wii is still laughing in both of their faces.

As reported by GamesIndustry.biz, more than 10.4 million Wii consoles have been shifted in Europe this year. The high point for Nintendo was April, when nearly 180,000 units were sold. The figure for Xbox 360 during the same month was around 90,000, as it was for PS3.

Overall, PS3 sales are said to exceed those for Xbox 360. However, Microsoft's console proved more popular than its rival during October, when a price cut boosted sales to more than 60,000 units.

The DS has beaten the PSP over the course of the year. In July Nintendo shifted 225,000 handhelds, while the PSP reached a peak of 50,000 units during the same period.
