IStocks:  (SNE)(MSFT)

f there was any question about whether the Nintendo Wii would be a worthy competitor to the Microsoft Xbox 360 or Sony Playstation 3, the Japanese launch of the game console may answer them. The Wii sold 372,000 units in its first two days at retail.

Sony’s sales of PlayStation will end up below where the company initially forecast due to product development delays.

For Sony, the Wii news is not so good.
