Nintendo zipped past Sony Corp. in market value on Monday and became one of Japan's top 10 issues for the first time ever as it elbowed the PlayStation maker out of its decade-long dominance in the game industry.

Nintendo's Wii has outsold Sony's PlayStation 3 game console by three to one in Japan and by more than two to one in the United States so far this year, according to game magazine publisher Enterbrain and research firm NPD.

Demand for its DS handheld game players also far outstripped that for Sony's PlayStation Portable. Shares in Nintendo were up 1.9 percent at 46,300 yen in early trade, boosting its market value to 6.56 trillion yen ($53 billion), while Sony fell 0.9 percent to 6,490 yen, or 6.51 trillion yen in market capitalization.
