The latest American sales figures are in and it’s another good week for the PS3 in the land of the free…

However the Wii shortage seemed to have come to an end for this week, just look at that percentage increase. Microsoft are still claiming a shortage and to be honest I have seen it here as well so I have to believe them.

Also no major sites have reported seeing a lot of 360’s in stores either

Hardware
clip_image002 166,547 (+122%)  10,258,533
clip_image004 143,579 (+12%)    21,899,209
clip_image006   87,826 (+14%)    12,282,679
clip_image008   60,074 (-16%)       4,526,142
clip_image010   56,539 (-17%)      11,435,929

So the Nintendo juggernaut is still top of the pile in the console and handheld market… While the PS3 is slightly ahead of the 360 this week in the also ran department.

When we get to the software sales it becomes apparent that the 360’s attachment rate is still fantastic. To put this into context, COD4 on the 360 has sold a total of 3.9m in the States, it’s PS3 counterpart has only managed to shift 1.3m.

In total sales the Wii still pips the 360 but only just..

Software
clip_image002[4] 994,309
clip_image004[4] 981,337
clip_image006[4] 753,922
clip_image008[4] 476,176
clip_image010[4] 291,507

I think the PSP sales also points to the amount of piracy in that industry…
