Wii still #1 In Video Game Sales in January despite Huge decline

The Nintendo Wii has been again the bestselling console in the United States in January of 2010 according to new numbers released by the NPD Group.
During January, U.S. consumers purchased more than 465,000 Wii systems and more than 422,000 systems in the Nintendo DS franchise, which includes Nintendo DS Lite and Nintendo DSi.

"Holiday shoppers depleted our supplies even after our fourth holiday season," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "We appreciate the nearly 900,000 consumers who turned to Nintendo to get a great value for their entertainment dollars."

Of course overall video game sales fell in January compared to the record breaking December 2009 video game sales. In the December Nintendo sold 3.8 million Wii consoles. The Wii sale number dropped by about 3.3m in January. The Wii is still on top as the Xbox 360 and PS3 also fell in the same way.

Six of the top 10 best-selling games of January play on Nintendo systems. These include New Super Mario Bros. Wii at No. 1 with more than 656,000 sold, Wii Fit Plus with the Wii Balance Board accessory at No. 3 with more than 368,000 sold, Mario Kart Wii with the Wii Wheel accessory at No. 5 with more than 310,000 sold, Wii Sports Resort with the Wii MotionPlus accessory at No. 6 with more than 294,000 sold, Just Dance by Ubisoft at No. 9 with more than 191,000 sold and the Wii Fit Plus disc at No. 10 with more than 186,000 sold.

The Nintendo Wii is actually out of stock right now on Amazon.

About the Geek Mind

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.
