the Wii numbers just make the other numbers feel unimportant.

It really does.  I'm awestruck by that number.  I mean Wii sold more in December U.S. alone than PS3 did around the world in the entire holiday season in its biggest holidays ever.  I mean that's just amazing even for the market leader.  Then DS continues to have better December despite almost all of them proclaiming to be record breaking.  Then software wise, well I need not say more haha. 

Just kinda in shock about this.  I mean what Wii did in December 2009 in the US alone may be something we talk about for years to come.  But knowing the expanding market, maybe we'll see it broken this year.  Either way it is incredible.

I think MS will take it this Christmas. They basically played Sony to a draw, where Sony had a $100 price drop + system redesign.

Next year MS will likely have their own 360 Slim to go with the Natal launch.


...but it isn't the slim that boosted sales. its the price cut...

LOL,  do you want me to get your quotes.

Let me repeat : THE PS3 BEAT THE 360 IN AMERICA IN DECEMBER.

that's huge.

December was a massive success for all companies in 2009. Nintendo managed to move tons of hardware and software, while Sony and Microsoft had a very successful end of the year bang with hardware sales. New Super Mario Bros. Wii was the biggest selling title on Wii in December, with sales likely to stay strong well into 2010.

Wii:3.81M,
PS3, 1.36M
Xbox 360 1.31M

Ps3 BEATS 360 OMGGGGGGG!

Not really.

1.36 vs 1.31 is a statistical tie.

I really wouldn't call it beating it based on how NPD numbers are calculated.

 

You wouldn't but I would

PS3 BEAT 360!! (by around 50K too)

This was a shocker to me, but less so after the SONY internal reports said 1.35 Million were sold

Well i'll put it this way.

Anyone who knows anything about statistics and the kind of thing NPD does wouldn't say the PS3 beat the 360.

It's well within the margin of error.


As for the Wii numbers... seems unbeleivable to me.

So what?

seriously are you really getting this deep into me just saying "PS3 beat 360" (which no-one was expecting), in pure numbers that did happen, chill out

It didn't though.  Because of the "margin of error."  The PS3 didn't sell 1.36 and the 360 didn't sell 1.31.


The Ps3 sold ~1.36 and the 360 sold ~1.31.

It's a big difference.


It's also not "getting into you." 

It's stating a fact for people who don't know much about statistics.



Simply amazing numbers by Nintendo and PS3 deserves their numbers for sure. They had a load of great games out recently.

I wonder how Microsoft will react to being last in all regions. No wonder we did not hear from them today ;)

So how were the numbers year over year?

Statistical tie and all that....lol unless 360 beats PS3 then its news.



Why everyone is trying to say XBOX and PS3 is a statistical tie.??? i mean 50k is not that much meager either.. its 1.5 million dollar sales for PS3. :$ and we can also say maybe PS3 had 100k lead and NPD is showing it less.. it should be taken as +/-25k for each console instead of only +25k for XBOX and -25k for PS3 to make it a tie. :$..

i think XBOX has even won by 900 units.. it was something like 287.1k and 288k.. So it was a win for XBOX so this is a win for PS3



I am really still amazed by how much Nintendo sold in one month I know the word is overused but it's completely CRAZY !!!

Today I really believe that the Wii will probably become the best selling home console system ever if it has one more year like this and Nintendo not being stupid and pull the plug on it early (but with these numbers I don't think this will happen for a looooooong time)

As for DS .... nothing needs to be said really
