Bloomberg is reporting on some May sales figures, stating that the Wii outsold the PS3 in the region by a margin of about 5:1. The Wii, which sold 251,794 compared to just over 50,000 for the PS3, has been a hot item since its launch and is continuing to constantly sell out.

These latest sales figures are an improvement for the system over last month, as in April it sold at about 4:1 with the PS3. The news that Nintendo is constantly beating out its competitors in the region comes as little shock, given the lack of software support and high price tag for Sony's machine.
