Overall and 2007 Video Game Console Sales Numbers in the U.S.
 
 

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 video game 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.

Video Game Console Sales 2007:

  • Nintendo DS - 8,500,000
  • Wii - 6,290,000
  • Xbox 360 - 4,620,000
  • PlayStation 2 - 3,970,000
  • PSP - 3,820,000
  • PlayStation 3 - 2,560,000
  • Game Boy Advance - 1,120,000

Overall Video Game Console Sale Stats:
  • PlayStation 2 - 41,120,000
  • Game Boy Advance - 36,240,000
  • Nintendo DS - 17,650,000
  • PSP - 10,470,000
  • Xbox 360 - 9,150,000
  • Wii - 7,380,000
