May 07 NPD: Hardware Sales

After April's staggering hardware numbers, especially for Nintendo, we didn't think that it could get any better for the company that's brought us Mario and Zelda. Between April and May, Nintendo saw a drop of sales for both the Nintendo DS and Nintendo Wii. But, both units still went on to sell fifty boat loads each, with the Nintendo DS racking in 423k systems and the Wii pulling in 338k. The biggest winner of May was the PSP. Fueled by its $30 price drop, the PSP went on to sell a highly respectable 221k systems - up 27k from the month before.

The PlayStation 2 is still selling at brisk pace, despite its age and without even a $99 price-tag. The PS2 sold 188k consoles, a marginal drop of 6k between April and May. Arguably, the biggest loser of the month is the Xbox 360 which failed to see any boost in performance with its all new Elite SKU launching late April. Performance of the Xbox 360 dropped by nearly 20k. The PS3 saw no virtually no difference in sales, as it pulled it yet another 82k sold, coming it nearly dead last. The console, and public, are clearly waiting for a price-drop.

Nintendo DS 423k
Nintendo Wii 338k
Sony PSP 221k
Sony PS2 188k
Xbox 360 155k
