    1 Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (Xbox 360) 330,900
    2 Wii Play (Wii) 298,100
    3 Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock (Wii) 239,600

    9 Mario Party (DS) 138,500
    10 Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games (DS) 133,000
    Video game hardware sales in January were below the market's expectations. Total hardware units came in at 1.227 million units, 23.86% below the market's expected 1.611 million units. The disappointing total hardware sales were largely due to surprising supply constraints with the Nintendo consoles. Nintendo Wii only sold 274,000 units, well below the market's 396,900 expectation. The Nintendo DS was even futher constrained, with only 251,000 units sold compared to the expected 483,700 units.
    For the first time in the United States, the PS3 outsold the Xbox 360 with 269,000 units and 230,000 units respectively. The PS3 outperformed expectations by 28.5% while the Xbox 360 underperformed by 20.3%.
    Sony PSP sales were exactly inline with 230,000 units. The prediction market expected 233,000 units.
    Growth in video game sales were well ahead of expectations for January, traditionally a slower month following the strong holiday season. Total video game software sales grew 11% from $549.5 million in January 2007 to $610.6 million.
    The month's big winner was once again Activision's Call of Duty 4. The Xbox 360 SKU sold 330,900 units compared to an expectation of 359,700 units.
    Sales of Super Mario Galaxy (Wii) slowed much faster than expected, dropping to 172,000 units. The prediction market expected the game to continue with 391,800 units sold.
    Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock (Wii) crushed expectations with 239,600 units sold, 36% over the forecasted 175,900 units. This beats Rock Band (Xbox 360), which sold 183,800 units, just 6.84% below the expected 197,300 units.
    The following tables compare market expectations on the simExchange and actual results as reported by the NPD Group.

      All anecdotal evidence suggests that the X360, was indeed, supply constrained for all of January. That's still on Microsoft though. No excuse for that to happen 2+ years into its life cycle.

        I predict this same trend will continue for this month as well - wii dropping in units sold, PS3 increasing - UNTIL Brawl comes out then there'll be a wii surge

                    What that teaches me is that PS3 isn't selling much Software really...No surprise as they have no really big exclusives yet.

                      Not the case worldwide.

                      Major third-party multiplatform titles that sell better worldwide on PS3 than on X360 despite the userbase difference:

                      Burnout Paradise
                      Assassin's Creed
                      DMC4
                      Fifa/PES/etc

                        What the hell are you talking about? Wii has not dropped in units sold. It is selling out still.... Microsoft and Nintendo have been facing hardware shortages. Smash Bros Brawl comes out next month and I doubt it will create any change in Wii units sold at all. Same with Wii Fit after that. If you are selling to your maximum capacity, you can not sell more than you put on shelves. Logic dictates this.

                          If nobody minds I'd like to sticky this and rename it so we have all the NPD numbers in one thread, rather than a new one each month? Let me know your thoughts.

                            I'm glad GH: III wii is selling well, Need good 2nd party third party support and games that "aren't tradionatlly nintendo type" to come over. Hoping Bully: Scholarship Edition is good.
