October 07 NPD: Hardware Sales

October wasn't a particularly impressive month for Sony, as the Xbox 360 was still hot off the heels of the Halo 3 release, and Sony stupidly announced a cheaper console/price-cut that wouldn't take effect immediately. The three week wait that would follow the announcement of the 40GB PlayStation 3 put a major stop on sales of the console. Despite the 80GB unit marked down $100, it seems like the public was clearly anticipating the $399 40GB PS3, even though it doesn't allow for backwards compatibility with PS2 games.

The PlayStation 3 took in a meager 121k consoles in October, and none of those sales include the 40GB PS3 that launched early in November. The PSP continues to do fairly well, as it shifted another 286k handhelds. The Xbox 360 also performed well with 366k. But the true bread-makers here are the Nintendo Wii, with an immense 519k sold, and the Nintendo DS with an equally impressive 458k. And for a console with a seven year old ticker, the PS2 is still bringing in good sales, with 184k consoles purchased.
