January NPD: Precipitous

The good news this month is that yet again, the DS Lite occupies the top spot on an NPD list. The bad news: that's only true if you organize the list by the percentage in which sales dropped since December. Keep in mind that Christmas is over -- a phenomenal success of a Christmas, at that -- and we're back to normal sales levels. In fact, we're not even back to normal sales levels yet, thanks to hardware shortages.

Still, there's no way we can make a 90% drop look good. Speaking of not good (for us), the software sales are after the break. The DS brings up the rear in software sales as well, with the top 10 showing attributable entirely to Mario's leisure time.
  • Wii: 274K 1.08m (80%)
  • PS3: 269K 528K (66%)
  • PS2: 264K 836K (76%)
  • DS Lite: 251K 2.22m (90%)
  • PSP: 230K 830K (78%)
  • Xbox 360: 230K 1.03m (82%)
