U.S. sales of video game consoles during March – Wii still #1


The Nintendo Wii was the #1 selling next-gen video game console in the U.S. during the month of March.  Following the Wii were Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Sony’s Playstation 3.

The specific sales numbers were:

  1. Wii: 259,000
  2. Xbox 360: 199,000
  3. PS3: 130,000

Interestingly, the PS2 outsold all next-gen consoles by selling 280,000 units.

Total dollar sales for video game consoles in March was $257 million.

So, we see the PS3 being outsold by the Wii and Xbox 360 – nice!  🙂
