According to the NPD Group’s Anita Frazier, all hardware systems with the exception of PS2 “realized an increase in unit sales over July”.
The PS3 captured the greatest increase month-over-month with unit sales boosted by 72% over July levels, but DS was the clear winner in August.
- DS 552.9K (538.9K)
- Wii 277.4K (252.5K)
- Xbox 360 215.4K (202.9K)
- PS3 210.0K (121.8K)
- PSP 140.3K (122.8K)
- PS2 105.9K (108K)
All hardware systems with the exception of the PS2 realized an increase in unit sales over July – those figures are in parenthesis.
Frazier also noted in the release that Wii is selling at levels comparable to what PS2 was doing at about this point in its lifecycle.
