Nintendo Pulls Ahead
Mark the date!
According to VG Charts, the Wii has just exceeded the market share of the released-a-year-earlier Xbox 360. As of today, VG charts reports 10.57 million Wiis in the hands of consumers, compared to 10.51 million 360s.
The DS, of course, has been ahead for a long time, with more than 48 million units sold (two in my house).
VG Charts attempts to track actual worldwide sales to consumers rather than shipments to retailers. This explains why their numbers are a little lower than the manufacturer's announced numbers, and also why Nintendo is doing a bit better than other numbers might suggest. Microsoft and Sony consoles sit in warehouses and store shelves for some time before landing in a living room.
Expecting another Merry Christmas for NTDOY.Posted by David at August 23, 2007 11:05 AM
