Console sales numbers for the week ending December 25th are in, and as we all expected Nintendo came out the undisputed champion with another spectacular holiday performance. The Wii sold 4.9 million consoles in the three weeks leading up to Christmas, while the DS sold about 4.45 million handheld units. On the games side, Wii Sports, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Wii Sports Resort, Super Mario All-Stars, and Wii Fit Plus all made the top ten this December, with New Super Mario Bros. DS, Mario Kart for both Wii and DS, Wii Party, and Super Mario Galaxy 2 pulling great numbers as well.
I’m normally not a sales guy, but it’s good to see Nintendo’s still firmly on top of the industry despite “competition” from the PlayStation Move and Xbox 360 Kinect. Here’s to 2010, and another good year to come in 2011! Happy New Year, Zelda Informer!
