PlayStation 3 - 364,000-374,000 (estimate based on Sony claiming a 20% rise in sales)
Xbox 360 - 438,000
Wii - 240,000
3DS - 360,000
DS - 145,000

Alone, those figures are expected. But what's surprising is the change in growth. According to NeoGAF, the PS3 is catching up with the Xbox 360, despite the 360's 40% dominance of the market share, and the 3DS is finally giving Nintendo the momentum they need with the drop in Wii and DS console sales:

PlayStation 3: +16.7-19.8%
Xbox 360: -9.5%
Wii: -5.5%
3DS: +10%
DS: -64%
