Xbox 360 nabs top sales through holidays

While some see it as a surprise and others see it as expected, the Xbox 360 sold the most consoles during the holiday season.

Market analysts NPD have suggested that the Xbox 360 was the best-selling console in the US over Christmas – with the Nintendo Wii trailing by just 200,000 units.

Overall, the Xbox 360 sold 2 million consoles, the Wii came in with 1.8 million, and the PS3 sold 750,000. That’s a lot of sales.

That’s fairly expected, considering the 360 was available in large numbers this past holiday season. The Wii and PS3 were sold out everywhere, and just now are PS3s starting to be freely available.

  1. Surprise! You actually covered this subject well. Are there other alternatives that i am going to have to verify out?

    When I not too long ago noticed your weblog and have been following along, I was thinking I would leave my 1st remark. I do not know what to mention other than I relished reading. Nice blog. I most certainly will keep coming to this journal more frequently.

  3. Hi there, I discovered this blog once, then lost it. Took me forever to occur back and find it. I wanted to view what comments you got. Very good blog by the way.

  4. Wow! I can’t believe I have found your blog. Very useful information.

  5. Darci Layo says:

    Howdy. Very good design you have there. I am looking for a fresh theme for my blog – where did you get this template? is it free or paid? Thx.

  6. I am not gonna lie, you have lost me here. I realize that you just meant well and you clearly know what you’re talking about, but I cant say that I get where youre coming from. In case you want men and women to understand your ideas, you must think of the other side of the discussion, too. Youve got a lot of know-how, Ill give you that. But, rather frankly, you turned me off with your tone.
