This past February, Nintendo sure felt the love by the consumers. Selling over seven hundred fifty thousand Wiis, a seventy-four percent increase over the Wii’s 2008 February. The DS reached slightly above five hundred eighty handhelds.
Following the ambiguous duo is the Xbox 360 with almost four hundred thousand units, the PlayStation 3 with two hundred seventy-six thousand, and the PlayStation Portable and PlayStation 2 selling under than two hundred thousand units. It seems like they’ve got quite a few bridges to cross to become recession-proof.
On a personal note, this makes me wonder what games these newcomers are going to get. I foresee quite a few more copies of Wii Play selling. Not to mention when Nintendo is going to settle down with the sales, not that I want them to slow down or anything.
Hopefully things look this good, or better, in March!
