hendrasudiro is on a distinguished road

DS sells 2.47 million. Wii sells 1.35 million. PS3 falls further behind.



The December 07 sales data for the United States video game industry collected by the NPD group have been released. The figures make great reading for Nintendo and its hordes of fans, but they're less great for people expecting Sony's PlayStation 3 to be making inroads into the Wii and Xbox 360's lead.

On the hardware front the DS obliterated the rest of the pack, shifting 2.47 million consoles over the period. The Wii came in second with 1.35 million consoles sold, and the 360 took third place with 1.26 million sales. The PlayStation 3 only managed 797,600 consoles - some way short of the Wii and Xbox 360.

Sales for Sony's other systems, the PS2 and PSP, did much better. The aging PS2 shifted 1.1 million systems and the PSP sold 1.06 million. So not bad overall for Sony, but it will surely be hoping sales of the PS3 pick up considerably this year.

On the software front Call of Duty 4 on the Xbox 360 continued to sell extremely well, selling 1.47 million units in December - taking the sales since release on the 360 to a staggering 3.04 million units. Mario Galaxy also sold well, with 1.4 million units sold in December and 2.52 million to date.

In 2007 Halo 3 managed to sell more than any other game, shifting 4.82 million units since its September release. The Top 10 selling titles include three for Xbox 360, three on Wii, three on PS2 and one on Nintendo DS. No PlayStation 3 game managed to break into the 2007 Top 10.

I kinda feel sorry for the PS3 tbh. They should have released it a lot later when all their good games were done.

I used to be such a Sony fanboy back in the days of the Playstation 1, barely touched the N64 and never the dreamcast? i think it was at the time.

Soon before the PS2/Gamecube/Xbox generation I started playing N64 and realised how ridiculously fun they were.

I still got a PS2 for some reason, played it for a while... got bored fast. When gaming i found myself around my friends house playing 2-4 player gamecube with my friends, thats the greatest thing about Nintendo, they are all about FUN and multi-involvement.

PS2 i left untouched and went to PC gaming, which i still am involved in with FPS/RTS games, i find them best on PC.

Thenn, when the 3rd big generation of consoles came (for my lifetime anyway) The Xbox 360/PS3/Nintendo Wii, I FINALLY made the right choice and went for the Wii, and have been very happy about my choice ever since.

I don't know why I just wrote out most of my gaming history, but meh I felt like it

Basically what i'm trying to say is Nintendo is what GAMES where originally about and should be about. Family and Freind FUN! That's why they are so successful and I think will be keeping the smiles on many o' gamers for years to come.
