February NPD – Wii breaks 750,000 units to dominate US hardware sales
As predicted, Wii came in at around 750,000 units sold in the US last month, according to just-released NPD data.
Both 360 and PS3 were over analyst predictions, at almost 400,000 and 300,000 units respectively.
Here’s the lot:
- PlayStation 2 – 131K
- PlayStation 3 -276K
- PSP – 199K
- Xbox 360 – 391K
- Wii – 753K
- Nintendo DS – 588K
February was a significant month for both PS3 and 360.
“The Xbox 360 realized its biggest non-holiday sales month, save for September 2007, when the Halo 3 release brought in a large group of new owners,” said NPD analyst Anita Frazier.
“Compared to last month, the PS3 realized the greatest month-over-month unit sales increase of all platforms.”
