Now that the holiday shopping season of 2007 is a couple of weeks behind us it is time to look at the sales numbers of the videogame consoles.
The numbers below were released last week by the market research company NPD Group.
Nintendo took the first two spots with the DS and the Wii, by a huge margin. Surprising is that almost 4 million Sony PS2s were sold - outselling the Sony PS3 by 1.5 million.
If Nintendo would have been able to step up the Wii production they would have surely sold considerably more than the 6,290,000 million consoles they did. In case you wondered, there are still no $249 Wii consoles available online.
All three new generation video game consoles still have a very long way to go to catch the 40 million mark of the Sony PS2, especially when the PS2 is still selling in the millions.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
