Nintendo’s video-game console topped Microsoft’s Xbox 360 in U.S. video-game console sales for the key month of December, according to numbers released this afternoon by the NPD Group research firm. But the short supply of the Wii helped make the race relatively close. Meanwhile, the PlayStation 3 was bested by its predecessor, the PS2, for the month.
Here are the U.S. console unit sales for the month:
Nintendo Wii: 1.35 million
Xbox 360: 1.26 million
PlayStation 2: 1.12 million
PlayStation 3: 797,600
