February sales numbers are in, and according to NPD, a Market Research Firm, the Wii out-sold any other game console. And so far, they’re right on track to out-ship and out-sell both the Xbox 360 and the PS3 in 2007 as the International Data Corporation originally predicted.
February numbers for consoles sold are as follows:
- Nintendo Wii – 335,000 sold
- Xbox 360 – 228,000 sold
- Playstation 3 – 127,000 sold
It appears as though Nintendo definitely attracted a new audience with the Wii, and at an affordable price, there’s no wonder that people are still unable to get their hands on one. Nintendo has got to be satisfied with the way the Wii took off.
President of Nintendo of America, Reggie Fils-Aime says, “We’re gratified that the explosive appeal of Wii, in terms of both new players and new ways to play, has created unprecedented demand, substantially beyond supply. But we also understand that there are hundreds of thousands of consumers still waiting to get their hands on the system so we continue to both ship more units to retail every week and work non-stop to build capacity.”
I know there are many of our readers who are still patiently waiting, and hopefully, your day will come soon!
