According to NPD Group here are the top selling gaming system of 2007:
- Nintendo DS – 8.5 million
- Nintendo Wii – 6.3 million
- Xbox 360 – 4.6 million
- Sony PS3 – 2.6 million
Imagine what the numbers would have been had the Nintendo Wii been widely available. They are still very difficult to find even a year after launch. I wonder how many people went looking for a Wii, couldn’t find one, and decided to buy a 360 or PS3 instead?
Nintendo has proven once again that quality game play is king. Xbox 360 had the top selling game in Halo 3, but what must-have game was available on the PS3 that wasn’t available on other platforms?
Nice job, Nintendo. Now when can we expect the next Zelda game?
