So possibly 20k Wii's sold more so far. 150k X360 (not sure if they meant 360s) and 50k PS3 to date.
The most aggressive among the big three makers is Nintendo, which launched its Wii console on April 26. The company aired TV commercials and ran newspaper and magazine ads in massive quantities during the first week of sales, featuring popular actor Won Bin.
Nintendo Korea refused to reveal sales figures due to company policy. But local game magazines estimate that more than 10,000 units were sold in the first four days.
The firm expects that it will sell much more during the Children's Day weekend, when it is customary for parents to give presents to their kids. Some hasty expectations are that Wii will break the record of the Nintendo DS portable game player, which sold more than 1.5 million units in Korea in little more than a year.
Feeling the heat from Wii, its rivals are trying to attract customers on price. Microsoft lowered the price of its Xbox 360 by 20,000 won to 369,000 won this week. Since being launched in 2006, Xbox is believed to have sold more than 150,000 units in Korea, far more than the 50,000 PlayStation3s.
For youngsters of all ages Children's Day also means presents -- lots of them. According to one recent survey video game players and high-tech cell phones topped wish lists this year. Stores sold some 10,000 Nintendo game players during the first week of May alone.
