Sales of the Nintendo Wii continue to decline in the United States as the console posted its lowest ever sales in the country, it was also the lowest selling Nintendo console of the month.

The Wii managed to sell just 172,000 units throughout April, meaning it was the worst performing home console. The Xbox 360 managed to sell 297,000, while the PS3 moved 203,000 despite all the troubles surrounding it.

Nintendo will surely be hoping that May's figures are better, as the console has seen a considerable price cut in the region. If not, its predecessor can't come soon enough.
