Wii-markable!!!

Here’s some gamer trivia….  November, 2006 was the first time all three new home systems would be available to consumers, along with three established portable game devices.  And which company wont the month hands down????  I’m not gloating, but you can’t say I didn’t say so….

The month belonged to……..wait for it…….Nintendo!!!

According to NPD, who keeps track of this kind of stuff, Nintendo sold 55 percent of all video game systems in November, led by the launch of the Wii(TM) home system and the incredible continuing success of the Nintendo DS(TM) portable.  While the Wii sold an average of 70,000 per day during the first 7 days,  the biggest sellers for the month were the Nintendo DS, at almost 920,000 units, and Game Boy® Advance, with nearly 642,000 portables sold.  With Wii and Nintendo GameCube(TM) totals included, Nintendo sold through more than 2.1 million of the 3.9 million systems purchased for the month.

The data also reveals that the Wii title The Legend of Zelda®: Twilight Princess achieved sales of 412,000, representing 87 percent of all Wii purchasers, the highest industry rate of sale for any launch title since introduction of Super Mario® 64 with the Nintendo® 64 a decade ago.

In addition, despite the inclusion of Wii Sports software with every system sale, Wii buyers also purchased an average of two additional games, compared to approximately one game per system for the installed bases of either competing new home system.

Now tell me again what’s so great about the PS3???
