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.

Interesting.
