Bloomberg reported today that Nintendo has sold more than twice as many Wii consoles in Japan as Sony has sold PlayStation 3ís.

Nintendo has sold 1.95 million Wii units as of March 25 since it debuted on Dec. 2 last year, compared to Sony who has sold 812,000 PS3ís since November 11, 2006.

The data came from Tokyo-based research firm Enterbrain Inc.

Bloomberg also reported Sony will struggle to make up for selling the PS3 at a loss if it continues to lose market share in Japan.
The Wiiís lead is significant considering the PS3 launched a month before Wii in Japan.
