The NPD released the hard- and software sales from April yesterday and today we have the German hardware sales from April 2007. Just like in America, Canada and Japan the Nintendo Wii is outselling both the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 in April.
Hardware sales April 2007:
1. Nintendo Wii - 20,000
2. Playstation 3 -16,000
3. Xbox 360 - 9,500
We also have the total hardware sales from all three next-gen systems since launch. The Xbox 360 is still leading, but with a year headstart on the Nintendo Wii, which is gaining fast. The Playstation 3 is also doing well with over 70,000 systems in 2 months. Though the Xbox 360 isn't selling well because AAA games like Gears of War, Dead Rising, Saints Row, Crackdown & C&3 have been banned in Germany because they are to violant.
Total hardware sales:
1. Xbox 360 - 262,000 (Since December 2005)
2. Nintendo Wii - 222,000 (Since December 2006)
3. Playstation 3 - 70,500 (Since March 2007)
