Next-gen console sales healthy at HMV

All three next-generation home consoles are performing well at retailer HMV, with the PlayStation 3, Wii and Xbox 360 contributing to healthy sales at the start of the traditionally quiet summer months.

Nintendo's Wii is still one of the hottest items in stores, and HMV has praised the format holder for good management during the well-publicised supply shortages.

And the Xbox 360 isn't stuttering despite having been on the market for 18 months now - with Ellis confident in Microsoft's pricing policies.

All 3 consoles are playing nice with each other, HMV has established peace among the rival factions and thus the world is in harmony. [cue annoying singing] -lol, nah but seriously I would like to see all 3 have a healthy share of the market, of course there will always be 1st, 2nd and 3rd but really I don't care which console is first as long as they all deliver great games.
