Last month was December 2009, which served big sales for video game consoles and games themselves. Nintendo dominated the sales chart as usual in December selling over 3.8 million Wii’s and 3.3 million sales for the DS. Even though Nintendo had very strong sales, every other console has a significant boost in sales, both the PS3 and the 360 sold over 1.3 consoles with PS3 in third place behind Nintendo and the 360 barely in fourth, PSP and even the PS2 had a significant boost in sales. As for game sales… Well you can probably guess what sold the most this month.
