GameFreaks365, January 10th:
Despite what Microsoft has repeatedly called "the greatest holiday lineup in videogame history" with the Games of the Year lineup, the Xbox 360 struggled in 2007 to outpace PS3. Xbox 360 shipments declined 18 percent from 8.9 million in 2006 to 7.3 million in 2007.
On the other hand, Sony PS3 appears to be on the rebound, according to preliminary numbers from Sony's PR department in Foster City. Worldwide totals are estimated to be in the range of 5-6 million for PS3 in 2007.
While exact numbers for Wii in 2007 will not be known until NPD reports in mid-January 2008, Nintendo estimates nearly as many Wiis will be sold in the console's first year and three months (17.5 million) as Microsoft has shipped Xbox 360 in its first two years.
GameFreaks365 notes that two weeks after Christmas, the Nintendo Wii and DS are still sold out in all of the local retailers they contacted: four GameStops, two Game Crazys, a Circuit City, two Wal-Marts, Toys R Us, Meijer and Target.
