Nintendominates video game hardware sales for June

The sales numbers released by research firm NPD Group for June continue to highlight Nintendo’s current strength in the market. Both the Nintendo DS and Wii lead all of its competitors in terms of software and hardware sales.

The Nintendo DS collected even more sales than during May, moving an amazing 561,900 units. The Wii followed closely behind with 381,800, also slightly up from the previous month.

Nintendo’s near-obsolete Game Boy Advance sold a surprising 109,400 consoles, despite there being no new software released for the handheld.

Sony took sat next in the ladder, with the PSP selling 290,100 and the undying PlayStation 2 at 270,700 units. The PlayStation 3, which was once again the lowest-selling, current-market console, only managed to sell 98,500 units.

Microsoft’s Xbox 360 sold 198,400 units, also up from May’s figures.

Overall, video game hardware sales were up 34 percent for the month as compared to the same period last year – accumulating $398.6 million.

I agree. My roommate bought a Wii back in December, it was "cool" for a few hours playing around with it in Zelda, Wii sports etc, but I have touched it once since then. I prefer Xbox and PC.

Where I live, people from all over the neighborhood come over to play my Wii (nobody under 21, though). It's a big competition, and we all get drunk. 5+ hours of Wii Sports every day since the Wii release has been awesome, and will probably continue for quite some time.
