December NPD Results
Everybody is a winner!
next_generation_consoles_141105.jpg

This month is generally reserved for the biggest numbers of the year, but this year is now officially reserved for the biggest numbers of the decade so far! The Wii, selling an unprecedented 2 million units last month, has officially been topped by the DS selling an even more impressive 3 million units. While the DS may dominate the hardware chart, Wii dominates the software top 10 with half of top 10 selling games on the Wii platform.

Sony and Microsoft aren't left out of the limelight entirely, however. The XBOX 360 just barely loses the top spot on the software list by only 113,000 units (Call of Duty World At War, with 1.33 million units), and a very respectable 2.7+ million sales figure overall, just in the top 10 alone. Sony sold over 2.1 million hardware units over all 3 platforms, which is definitely nothing to scoff at, especially considering one of those platforms is over 8 years old. They also managed to get a spot in the top 10, with Call of Duty: World At War for PS3 selling 533,000 units.

Hardware

DS - 3.04m
Wii - 2.15m

I'm surprised 540K+ of people don't know what a flash card is.

Well, the majority of people don't like to steal games.

Really? I'm pretty sure people wouldn't mind saving over $500 dollars on games. Not only that, but we get the games before there out in stores, worldwide.

Well yeah, if there's a legal alternative that's free, then yes, I'm sure they would. However, if you tell people to import a flash card from some internet site, and then go on irc and grab some roms illegally, the majority of people would either say "huh? I don't understand" or go "no, because that's against the law".

Plus, there are those that generally like a big collection of games with the cases and the manuals and stuff.
