wiilogoa2Wii sold 610,000 units in the US last month, according to just-released NPD data, a far smaller figure than predicted.

Both 360 and PS3 sold below analyst predictions as well, with over 330,000 and 218,000 units sold respectively.

  • PS2 – 112K
  • PS3 – 218K
  • PSP – 168K
  • Xbox 360 -330K
  • Wii – 601K
  • DS -563K

Michael Pachter forecast earlier this week that 800,000 Wii, 400,000 360, and 350,000 PS3 consoles were sold in America during March.

By comparison, EEDAR predicted that 900,000 Wiis, 395,000 360s and 300,000 PS3 were sold during the period.
