After a year of release, the Wii comes close to taking over the console war sales.

It may be too good to be true, but even with the year headstart the 360 had, the Wii has recently come neck and neck with the leading competitor.

With the 360 standing at 13.4mil consoles sold worldwide, the Wii is just barely behind with 13.2mil global console sales. And if you check the rate it’s growing from the nexgenwars website, you’ll see it is just a matter of time before the Wii takes the lead as the dominating console of the nex-gen wars.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, the PS3 pulls its rump along with a less than spectacular global until sale of 5.6mil units. Are we surprised?
