US console sales soar over thanksgiving

Console sales figures are in for Thanksgiving week in the grand old US of A and the Playstation 3 has set an all time record of almost half a million units sold (440,000). The Wii has sold around 525,000 units and when we tried to get details from Microsoft about the Xbox 360 we were told “it is our biggest so far this year” – our industry insiders told us that the sales were around 350,000 which while still impressive – puts them in last place.

The sales figures were assuredly helped by the great bundle deals across the USA over the holiday season which often included a couple of free games at the standard retail price. The Xbox 360 Elite for instance was being sold at Best Buy with six games for the same price as the two game bundle deal.

Nintendo did very well with their portable sales with over 1 million units of the DS and DSi sold which certainly helped boost their sales figures in conjunction with the Wii.

The success story in this case however falls on the PS3 – it has struggled in the past a little and these figures over the holiday week are very encouraging for Sony.
