NPD Group has issued its console hardware sales data for October 2009. Was Nintendo’s Wii price cut put it back on top? Could Sony continue it’s momentum after an excellent September? Let’s take a look at the numbers!
- Wii: 506,900
- Nintendo DS: 457,600
- PlayStation 3: 320,600
- Xbox 360: 249,700
- PSP: 174,600
- PlayStation 2: 117,800
So yeah, Nintendo’s “fad” of a console reclaimed its crown. It will be interesting to see if the Wii can keep the top spot in the crucial months of November and December. Sony has to be disappointed in its drop off, while Microsoft is surely snickering at its rival’s decline. That said, it’s not like MS didn’t slide as well.
What do you make off October’s numbers? Any predictions for November?
