Wii sales in June continue to lead the pack

Posted by Benjamin J. Romano

NPD has released its June U.S. video game sales report and the Nintendo Wii continues to outpace Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Sony's PlayStation 3 in U.S. unit sales:

Wii: 381,800 units
Xbox 360: 198,400 units
PS3: 98,500 units

Sony's PR firm sent out a note last night citing preliminary data that shows the impact of its recent console price cut:

"PS3 sales have increased by more than 135 percent at the company's top five retailers since the new $499 price was announced two weeks ago on July 9. During this same two-week period, total PlayStation hardware sales have increased by 161 percent, software by 15 percent and peripherals by 60 percent."

In addition to strong console sales, games for Nintendo's systems are topping the chart. The company had six of the 10 best-selling software SKUs in June (four for the Wii and two for the hand-held Nintendo DS). Microsoft had three titles in the top 10 and Sony had one, but it was a title for the PlayStation 2.
