Default Report: Nintendo sold 194,000 3DS units in April and 172,000 Wiis; PS3 sold 204,000

Yesterday, Microsoft was all too willing to toot its own horn and reveal that 297,000 Xbox 360s were sold in the month of April, but GameSpot says it managed to secure numbers for its competitor, Nintendo. The 3DS was apparently just shy of 200,000 units, unloading 194,000 3DS handhelds on consumers.

The Wii lagged behind with 172,000 units sold, while the remaining members of the DS family sold a combined 257,000 units. May should fare better for Nintendo on the Wii side of things, with an impending price cut on the horizon, one that will see consoles bundled with a copy of Mario Kart Wii and a wheel accessory.

As for the PS3, MarketWatch reports 204,000 units were sold -- not bad considering all of the, well, you know. Still, that's not a figure confirmed by Sony, who we've contacted for comment. We'll update you when we hear back.
