I have and will continue to have a place in my heart for Nintendo. In fact, my first console was a Super Nintendo. The video game market has changed drastically since the early '90s and it seems like what once was platinum is more so along the lines of silver now. Nintendo has always been...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Xbox 360 and Wii Each Double PS3 in December Console Sales

Posted on Monday, January 10 @ 09:40:26 Eastern by


The PS3 has been in dead-last this entire console generation, but has picked up considerable steam recently. Lately, the Wii's sales and software offering have been dwindling, despite being the clear-cut leader thanks to mainstream acceptance and astronomical sales since launch. The Xbox 360 found its second wind with the Kinect motion-sensor, and has once again been able to remain a hot sell. So how did the big three perform during the crucial holiday sales-month of December? The Wii and 360 sold extremely well according to industry analysts Wedbush Morgan and EEDAR. The PS3? Not so much.

Prior to the official NPD Group sales figures for the month of December being published, analysts from Webush Morgan and EEDAR have offered up their sales performance predictions for each console. These estimates have the Wii and the 360 neck and neck, while more than doubling the PS3 in units sold.  Even the Nintendo DS has doubled the PS3 in sales if these figures are to be believed. Check out their estimates below:

Wedbush / EEDAR (year-over-year change)
DS: 2,550,000 (-23%) / 2,400,000 (-27%)
Wii: 2,600,000 (-32%) / 2,200,000 (-42%)
360: 2,500,000 (91%) / 1,900,000 (45%)
PS3: 1,200,000 (-12%) / 1,100,000 (-19%)
PS2: 2 00,000 (-40%) / NA
PSP: 4,50,000 (-31%) / 5,00,000 (-24%)
Industry: 9,500,000 (-12%) / 8,100,000 (-25%)

While these are only "estimates", they are a good indication of the current sales climate for each console. With that said, it seems the PS3 is destined to stay in last place this generation, even with 2011 being the console's best software lineup yet.

What, if anything, do you think Sony could do to turn things around?
