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.

wow you are like other internet trolls. We've seen you pull nnumbers out your ass, and making dumb claims about what makes a next gen console.. You should be a little more open minded, Eye Candy is great but gameplay is everything! The Wii will be the greatest current generation, not just because i like it, or many other posters in here does, but because there is so many people that do, old people, parents, kids, teenageres, about every age group will the majority like this type of gaming.. i own a PS2 it's great, but the only great graphics games i have is God Of War, and metal gear solid, the best games i have is rampage, and Ratchet and clank, fun games, with a good gameplay.

i doubt you have really tried a Wii, but if you have you didn't like the game you've tried it seems.
