So after the recent confusion surrounding Sony’s claims of shifting 100 000 units the official NPD stats and we can see what difference the US price cut has had in the states.
Now remember these only include 2 weeks of price cuts and don’t include the 40GB sales as that only got released in November.
So the Halo hardware effect is pretty much over with the 360’s sales dropping by 160 000 units, the Wii sales increased by 18 000 and the PS3’s sales increased by 2 000 from the previous month.
To be honest I expected better figures from the PS3 and I think it is quite worrying that there was not a Haloish spike after the price drop. The only thing left to see now is whether or not the majority of consumers are waiting for the 40GB model.
