Newsbrief: A new report from Nikkei today notes that Sony sold more video game hardware than Nintendo last fiscal year -- the first time this has happened since 2005.

Sony sold 18.7 million systems across PS3, PS4, PS Vita, PSP and PS Vita TV. Nintendo, meanwhile, sold 16.31 million units. In comparison, Microsoft sold 11.6 million units.

The shift in power is down to the launch of the PlayStation 4, coupled with poor Nintendo Wii U sales, and a decrease in Nintendo 3DS hardware sales year-over-year.

Funny... with the general amount of Nintendo gloom in the last few years, I assumed that had happened long ago...

It takes a lot of dedication and passion to create a narrative.

The gloom is with Wii U, their 3DS is selling very well. this wouldn't have happened without PS4

Have a gameboy, couple of DS, Wii as well as the ole N64.

Be a shame to lose Nintendo altogether.

Hope they figure this out.
