NPD October: 360 371k, PS3 190k, Wii 803k

From gamasutra.com:


As usual, Nintendo's two current hardware platforms took the top hardware slot -- and while most platforms stayed in roughly the same sales ballpark as last month, Wii sales jumped well over 100,000 units to 803,000 units.
Meanwhile, Microsoft missed its claimed two-to-one sales dominance over the PS3, but only by a slim 9,000 units, with the Xbox 360 at 371,000 and the PlayStation at 190,000 units sold.

This month's hardware sales chart is as follows:
Wii - 803,000
Nintendo DS - 491,000
Xbox 360 - 371,000
PSP - 193,000
PlayStation 3 - 190,000
PlayStation 2 - 136,000

You never see one at the store because it's shelf life is next to nothing. The minute they come in they are sold. My son works at gamestop and he tells me the Wii's come in the back door and within an hour they are all gone out the front door. He also says the PS3 is very slow seller hardware and software wise. Most of the preorders at his store are all for 360. It's about a 3 to 1 margin between 360 and PS3 preorders.
