The Kindle and the iPod touch seems dominated gadget sales – but what about game consoles? They were not mentioned, but the best-selling product ranks give an initial idea who won the season.
The best-selling video game hardware, the PS3 Blu-ray remote control # 2, followed by the Nintendo controller bundle to # 8 and # 10 Kinect sensor. Looking at the line, we find the Wii Fit bundle # 12 on the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller # 15, the Wii Wheel beam # 16, the black Wii Remote Plus # 20, Black Wii Nunchuk controller # 22 and the PS3 Wireless Controller # 24.
The first real game console is listed at # 30 – the black Wii bundle. Nintendo came in ahead of the Xbox 360 250 GB Kinect beam # 34, the 250 GB Xbox 360, the 160 GB PS3 at # 49, # 57 on the Wii red, white Wii at # 73, the 320 GB PS3 bundle Move at # 152 and the least popular game console – the PS3 to 320 GB # 435.
If these results, to be taken with a grain of salt to interpret as they do not represent the entire holiday season, we would tend to say that video game sales on all accessories and controllers of this season. The Wii may be the best selling game console again, despite the renewed appeal of the PS3 and Xbox 360. Move the PS3 starter bundle is listed at # 44 by Amazon, well before the regular PS3 and the PS3 bundle.
The best-selling games seem to have played Call of Duty: Black Ops for Xbox 360 (# 1), followed by the PS3 version (# 3) and Just Dance for Wii (# 4). Sony’s Gran Turismo 5 came in at # 23. Central dance was the most popular game for Kinect (# 5). Move the most popular PS3 games (other than the supplied sports game Champions Sports) NBA 2K11 was at # 64.
