    Actually it looks like x-box may be sliding into 3rd:

    surprisingly wii is killing both of them, but here is the comparison through august 08 for this year:

    Sales in 2008 through August has Xbox 360 in last place (154,000), behind Wii (376,000) and PS3 (200,000).

    Overall:

    total sales of the Wii since its release stand at 1,060,000, leading Xbox 360 (870,000) and PS3 (520,000).
