January 07 NPD: Wii, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 Sales
Bloomberg did manage to score January 2007 sales numbers for the Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360, though. The numbers were handed to Bloomberg from Credit Suisse, who got their numbers from NPD. Overall, for a console that had absolutely no software released in all of January and most of December, the PS3 fared decently, taking in 244,000 consoles. Surprisingly, the Xbox 360 didn't take in significantly more - it came in with 294,000. But it was the inexpensive Nintendo Wii that took in 436,000 units in sales. We have no idea where the other consoles, including handhelds, stand - but as soon as we do, we'll be on it.
