NPD Console Hardware Sales Figures for August 2010
NPD Group has released its console sales figures for August 2010. August is a traditionally weak month for the business and the numbers reflect that. Check it out:
- Xbox 360: 356,700
- Nintendo DS: 342,700
- Nintendo Wii: 244,300
- PlayStation 3: 226,000
- PlayStation Portable: 79,400
For the second month in a row, Microsoft has topped the charts. Although the Wii continues to be the market leader, it’s clear that it won’t be putting up numbers like it did in the past. The question is, will this pattern hold for the rest of the year? Since all of you are capable of being industry analysts, I’d love to hear your opinion. How do you think the console wars will play out for the rest of 2010?
