Wii Could Outsell PS2

Nintendo President Satoru Iwata believes that within good time the Nintendo Wii could overtake Sony's Playstation 2 platform and become the best selling video games console of all time.

"Sony's PS2 sales of 100 million units is an extraordinary number that our home game console business has not achieved, But if we can make our bid to expand the gaming population a continued success, we could exceed that."

Since launch in 2000 the Playstation 2 has shipped approximately 120million units. As of May 2007 the Wii had sold 5.84 million.
