Wii Takes Over January
Checking out Kotaku today and I find out that the Wii was the best selling console for the month of January.
“According to preliminary NPD numbers released by Microsoft, January’s console sales in North America were dominated by the Nintendo Wii. While Microsoft was pleased as punch selling approximately 294,000 systems, beating out the PS3 with 244,000, the figures show Nintendo pushed 436,000 units. That’s 33% more than their closest competitor for those too lazy to pull up their calculator program.”
This does not suprise me. I have gone to Best Buy, Target, and EB Games and I have not seen a Wii on the shelves. I was starting to think that it didn’t exist. But I am surprised that the PS3 is even selling that many consoles.
