January 07 NPD: Wii, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 Sales

  The past 7 days have been terribly annoying. It's bad enough that the NPD's January hardware sales results were delayed by default, because January is a 5-week sales period. But last week we had to suffer another delay for the numbers, as NPD decided to not release them last Thursday. Allegedly the release of the numbers was to happen today...and it's 10:20PM EST as I write this, and nothing. Likewise, because NPD Fungroup's offices are located just a few miles away from our office here, we don't expect an announcement for another 12 hours, if even.

   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.

   Quick recap:

   Nintendo Wii: 436,000

   Xbox 360: 294,000

   PlayStation 3: 244,000
