I personally don’t pay attention to the monthly NPD numbers, but December NPD numbers are just too significant to pass up. Without further ado, here are the hardware numbers:
System - December 2007 - Annual 2007
PlayStation 2 - 1.1 million - 3.97 million
PlayStation 3 - 797.6 K - 2.56 million
PlayStation Portable - 1.06 million - 3.82 million
Xbox 360 - 1.26 million - 4.62 million
Wii - 1.35 million - 6.29 million
Nintendo DS - 2.47 million - 8.50 million
Everyone did well, but some obviously better than others. Nintendo was just ridiculous. 2.47 million units in one month? Serious profits there. The PS2 numbers impressed me as well considering the “next-gen” competition. Everything else was as expected, though.
For the rest of the sales figures (including software sales) check out the thread at NeoGAF. Thanks sonycowboy.
