A few weeks ago I read an article, somewhere on the Internet, that Microsoft has sold 10 million X-Box 360’s. The article also stated that neither Nintendo nor PS3 had reached this milestone. The facts are accurate. But what they don’t tell us is the entire story.
First of all Microsoft has been selling the X-Box 360 for about 1 year longer than the Nintendo Wii systems. The Nintendo Wii will hit the 10 million mark next month and surpass the X-Box 360 sales mark. The NPD sales group has compiled the sales number for the periods of March and April and reported these numbers:
More than 714,000 Wiis were sold during the four weeks of April 6 through May 3, and that followed 721,000 sold during the five weeks of March 2 through April 5. Just 188,000 Xbox 360s and a shade over 187,000 PS3s were sold in the mostly April period, down from 262,000 and 257,000, respectively, in March.
Bottom line. The Nintendo Wii outsells both the X-Box 360 and PS3 sales combined. Plus it does it quite handily. 🙂
