Down, down , down, that’s where this months console sales went compared to December, but that’s no surprise at all as December obviously is when Christmas is. Overall, this month looked pretty slow for all consoles really, seeming slightly lower than what they usually are but people were probably a little strapped for cash after Christmas. Anyway, the top selling console this month is… you guessed it… the Wii with 466,000 sold, in second is the DS with 422,000 sold, in third is the 360 with 333,000 sold and finally in fourth was the PS3 with 277,000 sold.
