NPD January: Xbox 360 moves 281,00 units – report puts Wii U sales at 57,000
Xbox 360 moved 281,000 units in January, according to an NPD report from the firm. While Nintendo didn’t send out its usual NPD sales figures last night like Microsoft did, a CNET report indicates the new console didn’t fair too well for the month.
According to Microsoft, Xbox 360 was the number-one selling console for the “25th consecutive month” with more than $338 million spent on Xbox 360 retail including games, consoles and accessories in January. The console held a 44% market share compared to other current-generation consoles.
Wii U, on the other hands, moved 57,000 units during the January period, according to a CNET report.
A report on NeoGAF states Vita sold close to the mid 30,000 mark.
Total hardware sales for the January period reached $205 million, and software sales were slightly under $393 million.
