Where is your God now? Nintendo consoles outsell Sony 5 to 1 in May

In hindsight, I suppose making the world's most powerful consoles for both the home theater and portable gaming seemed like a bright idea.  When you have the best system in the business, how could you go wrong?  Who knew that the two most underpowered competitors from Nintendo would actually be irrefutably more enticing to consumers back then? I'm sure you've heard how well Nintendo is doing lately, but this new Bloomberg report will give fanboys a golden ratio they can sing about:

Wii Outsells PS3 5 to 1 in Japan

Japanese Famitsu game magazine publisher Enterbrain, which said Nintendo sold 251,794 Wiis during May. The PS3 sold just over 50,000 units. Xbox 360 was a dot in the rear view at 11,082 sold during the entire month. The DS outsold PSP at the same rate, with Nintendo’s handheld selling 620,670 versus 123,673 for Sony’s portable. The gap between PS3 and Wii widened since April in Japan, when the Wii outsold PS3 four-to-one.

That's gotta burn.  As a PS3 owner, this news saddens my inner panda. I can only hope Sony and its now-wobbly third party support are going to come out of this one alive. Doesn't the Japanese know that its got Blu-ray amphetamines?!!

Editor's note: The mere thought of Reggie singing Morrison at a press conference sent me into a coma.
