Nintendo came out on top once again throughout December hardware sales

The holiday season is undoubtedly the most important selling period for console makers, and it’s easy to see why after examining the NPD sales data for December 2007.

The Nintendo DS was by far the best selling system for the month with 2.47 million sold. With the lowest price point for hardware and large selection of software that appeals to the casual market, it’s not surprising to see Nintendo’s handheld system at the top of the charts.

 

Nintendo also reigns supreme in the living room too, with the Wii selling the most of all home console systems at 1.35 million units.

"By the end of 2007 we were sold out of virtually all hardware, and much of our stock of software and accessories was sold out as well, thanks to the broad appeal of Wii and Nintendo DS to core gamers, women, families, grandparents - and seemingly everyone in between," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of sales & marketing. "And that momentum continues here in the early weeks of 2008."
