NPD finally released the first console sales data of 2007. The Wii takes the top spot again, showing the lowest decrease in sales out of the three consoles compared to the record month of December 2006. The Wii is still in short supply all over North America (and Europe for that matter), and it doesn’t look like Nintendo has increased the production as promised.
The Xbox 360 sales were up 18% compared to last year, but the numbers would have been even higher if there weren’t shortages of the console. The PS3 on the other hand is seeing pretty decent sales, while no shortages are reported, contrary to Sony boss Jack Tretton’s comment.
- Wii – 436,000
- Xbox 360 – 294,000
- PlayStation 3 – 244,000
