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)?
