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.

geez, some people live and die by the transistor count in their consoles . . .


and some people are in denial about what next gen is..(mainly wii owners, what a surprise!!)
sorry to tell you but the term 'next gen' has been used long before this generation of consoles, when HDTV's were first introduced as 'NEXT GENERATION WITH MUCH BETTER VIDEO QUALITY'

so i do not see what it is so hard to consider that the wii not being HD is not really 'Next Gen'

As previously stated, the wii is an overclocked gamecube, same cpu, same graphics core just increased clock speed, and of course a nice new case and all new controller technology.

So yes it is a totally different way to play, but next gen, i think not. Do not get me wrong i have own a wii, and i love it do death, but in the end clock to clock, its maybe on par with the original xbox and i do not go around to all my friends bragging about my next generation wii console.

then again, the whole next gen fad is just a marketing ploy to get you to buy that nice new fancy tv, and or console ;)

You know - I was gonna patent my Virtual Reality Gaming Machine that, instead of projecting images on a television, would directly send them to your brain to create the most realistic gaming experience known to man. It also comes with a body suit that simulates tactile feeling in game, as well as special nose plugs that simulate smell.

But it doesn't do 1080p.

Darn.

Off-topic, but you know, appreciating the the point-of-view, humor, sarcasm, whatever, of an opponent in a debate is probably one of the most difficult things to do in life. Particularly in an internet forum where internet culture seems to promote stubborn, close-minded, flaming, fan-boy-ism.

Good for you.
