NPD 2010 Console Sales Figures (Flame On!)

NPD Group has released its December console sales figures, giving flame warriors some nice 2010 numbers to play with. I haven’t been able to track down the PSP year-end totals yet, but I’ll add them as soon as I do. Here are the total U.S. console sales in 2010 according to NPD Group:

  • Nintendo DS:  8.56 million
  • Nintendo Wii: 7.07 million
  • Xbox 360: 6.76 million
  • PlayStation 3: 4.33 million

While most of the numbers were lower than 2009, Microsoft had a tremendous year with the Xbox 360, selling more than 40 percent more units in 2010 than 2009. The new model combined with Kinect made the Xbox 360 a huge winner in America.

What do you guys and dolls make of the 2010 console wars (in America)?

    The Wii domintated December but not by much. I heard that MS ran out of 360s during the last two week of December, if this is true then they would've definitely outsold the Wii. the 360 is back with their Kinect bundles but for how long.

    It is decided then. I am definitely a Contrarian, because I hate the 3 most popular platforms.

    The only console on the list I didn’t buy last month was a Wii.

    That’s kind of a sad realization.

      There is nothing sad about that! lol.

      • Iceman

        Yes there is.


      • bsukenyan

        what is sad about that?

      • Big Blak

        He has kids and he deprived them of the Wii experience lol.

      • bsukenyan

        If that's the case then I can understand. Speaking of which, the black Wii I ordered just got delivered!

      • Thanks again!

      • bsukenyan

        no problem. I'm assuming that all showed up for you then? I have to wait to open it though, my fiance said she wants to when she gets her later tonight, lol. She is officially excited for a video game console- phase 1 in turning her into a gamer complete! haha.

        Nah… we have a Wii already. It's in my 4 year old daughter's room now that my son has a 360 in his room.

        It's sad because there's a whole world to be had out there, and I spent about $1000 on consoles in one month.

    i dont hate the xbox (anymore)

    ive always said that the ps3 was just a better machine, and i stand by that

  • Iceman

    If someone came to me three years ago and said that the Nintendo DS will outsell the Wii, PS3 and Xbox 360 in December of 2010, I would have punched them in the face for being so retarded, then ran away fast.
