Nintendo responds to NPD data (official press release)

Equaling its status on a worldwide basis, Wii has become the best-selling video game console in the United States. According to independent sales tracking information from the NPD Group, more than 666,000 Wii consoles sold for the month of June, and nearly 10.9 million Wii consoles have been sold in the United States in the 20 months following its November 2006 launch. The system is credited with breaking down the psychological barriers between gamers and non-gamers.

"Wii was created with the goal of expanding the gaming universe through its intuitive motion-sensing controller," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "As we have demonstrated this week during the E3 Media & Business Summit, Wii continues to pioneer new ways for people to interact with their video games and with one another."

Hmm, I haven't seen an spontaneous kumbaya singing by gamers and non-gamers while holding hands ...

That said, after buying a 360 this week, I now have all systems. I bought the 360 because the Wii just wasn't doing anything for me. But it was free from the GF, so I'll check out some titles. SMG was fun though.

BTW, where the hell is the NPD? Two articles regarding NPD for nintendo, but no numbers?

Even with MGS and GTA the HD consoles cannot compete. Nintendo rocks
