posted in: Game News | 0

Hardware:

  1. Wii – 679.2K
  2. Nintendo DS – 510.8K
  3. Xbox 360 – 309K
  4. PlayStation 3 – 203.2K
  5. PSP – 172.3K
  6. PlayStation 2 – 101.2K

Software:

  1. WII FIT (WII) – 777K
  2. WII PLAY W/ REMOTE (WII) – 415K
  3. MARIO KART W/WHEEL (WII) – 292K
  4. LEFT 4 DEAD (360) – 243K
  5. CALL OF DUTY: WORLD AT WAR* (360) – 235K
  6. SKATE 2 (360) – 199K
  7. GUITAR HERO WORLD TOUR (WII) – 155K
  8. NEW SUPER MARIO BROS (DS) – 135K
  9. MARIO KART DS (DS ) – 132K
  10. LORD OF THE RINGS: CONQUEST (360) – 113K

My Predictions:

[360] 275K
[NDS] 350K
[PS2] 175K
[PS3] 200K
[PSP] 225K
[WII] 500K

My predictions were quite off for this month. The only console I was close on was the PlayStation 3 numbers. It also looks like the PS2 is just about to go under 100K.

Software sales didn’t surprise me too much. Skate 2 raking in only 199K isn’t much of a surprise considering the month it was released in.

I’m pondering what I’m going to do with the U.S. NPD Hardware Watch 2009. I’m even considering dropping the feature completely – more on that later.
