Now I hate stupid console flame wars more than anybody, but I still like to check out the stats and see just how well everything sold here in the US. Maybe you do, too?
It should come as a surprise to no one that the Nintendo Wii came out on top this holiday season. Nintendo’s reign of terror culminated in 1,176,232 hardware sales and 6,721,628 software sales.
The Xbox 360 wasn’t that far behind with 976,139 hardware sales and actually took a small lead in software sales with 6,881,438.
The Playstation 3, although in somewhat of a distant third, received a sales boost thanks to price drops and ended up with 588,982 hardware sales which in turn led to software sales of 2,552,099.
