January 07 NPD: Complete Hardware Sales
Sales of obsolete hardware such as the GBA, Xbox and GameCube were made available, as well. The GameBoy Advance continues to sell well in North America, as NPD reports 179k units sold. Nintendo's GameCube is depleting its last remaining stock with 34k sold. And NPD reports 800 sold for the discontinued Xbox.
Incidentally, while the PlayStation 3 is selling marginally less than the X360, at the moment - it is actually Sony who is receiving the largest gross revenue, overall. Reports surfaced that the average price per PS3 sold is close to $580. That's a little over $141M in revenue for Sony. The average price per X360 sold is $390, which brings Microsoft's January revenue to nearly $115M. And because the Wii only has one price point of $250, Nintendo's revenue is $109M.
Playstation 2 299k
Xbox 360 294k
Playstation 3 244k
Nintendo DS 239k
Note: It is important to know that the NPD does not calculate 100% of sales, but closer to 75%. Sales in/from Canada, Mexico, Wal-Mart, Amazon.com, Sam's Club, a variety of retail stores and privately owned electronics/game stores do not get accounted for. These numbers are not concrete and are only used to illustrate a rough estimate of sales performance.
