I guess MS had a better manufacturer than Nintendo too. They couldn't make enough Wiis to keep up with demand. I'm sure the Kinect sold way more than the Nintendo system, just saying. The price difference isn't much either.

The Wii isn't the number 1 bestseller anymore in various markets. I looked for something to back me up on this and apparently, in the UK last year, the 360 outsold the Wii quite handily, although it's business as usual for Nintendo in North America. Japan, however, still can't find it in itself to embrace any sort of hardware that non-Japanese companies throw out.
Make no mistake though, Kinect is helping to shift some 360s.
The US-only figures seem to paint a less rosy picture for the Wii...
