August 07 NPD: Hardware Sales

With the price-drop of the PlayStation 3 behind it, the anticipation of August's NPD results hasn't been nearly as tense as was the wait for July's. Nevertheless, they are here, and the results are both shocking and disappointing. We start off with the shock. Fueled by a slight drop in price, the Xbox 360 actually saw over a 100k increase in sales, with 277k consoles sold. The Nintendo Wii continues to sell above everyone's expectations, moving another 404k units of stock. The Nintendo DS trails right behind it with 383k units sold.

And now the bad...sales for Sony fell across the board. The PlayStation 2 dropped 20k units to 202k. The PSP sharply slides down to 151k sold after selling a fantastic 214k last month. And the PlayStation 3 loses 30k in sales, with only 130k systems sold. Surprisingly, for the month of August, only the Xbox 360 saw an increase in sales, as even Nintendo lost sales across the board (as minimal as they were). The holidays are up and coming, and with rumors of another price-cut for the PlayStation 3 looming, things should surely get interesting.
