Over 1 million units sold for just the month of March.. wonder how many in total sales now.. hmm x]

there’s also a breakdown list for number of gaming platforms (consoles/handhelds) sold, which i guess also accumulates into that 6% increase:

Retail console unit sales for March 2010 are as follows:

1. Nintendo DS: 700,800
2. Wii: 557,500
3. Xbox 360: 338,400
4. PlayStation 3: 313,900
5. PSP: 119,900
6. PlayStation 2: 118,300


These hardware sales are most interesting to me..for example it shows that there’s like an average of 300,000 new homes to purchase a PS3 each month! More and more families are having the gaming console at home, which means a constantly growing community, which means more love for the gaming industry! :D

and just look at the number of people now with a Wii in thier homes…550,000 more in just a single month of March.. wow. o-o
