NDP sales numbers for video game consoles in August show another pretty picture for Nintendo. Nintendo sold more than 448,000 Wii consoles in the United States, bringing the lifetime U.S. total to nearly 12 million.
DS console sales even reached 514,000 for last month bringing the total to 22 million units.
Five games made for Nintendo systems placed in the top 10 best-selling games of the month, including Wii Fit at No. 4 with nearly 395,000 sold, Mario Kart Wii at No. 5 with nearly 329,000 sold, Wii Play at No. 6 with more than 200,000 sold, Madden NFL 09 All-Play for Wii at No. 9 with nearly 116,000 sold and Guitar Hero: On Tour for Nintendo DS at No. 10 with more than 111,000 sold.
It is pretty amazing that Nintendo manages to sell about half a million consoles each month during summer. For fall I expect that to reach a million per month, if Nintendo can manage to bring enough inventory to the U.S.
