Nintendo Consoles Wrap December Around Their Finger
December was a good months for Nintendo's Wii and DS consoles. The duo ended the year as the top selling video game platforms of the month, with a combined result of over 3.75 million.

In the PlayStation 3 department it was sort of a good news/bad news situation. The total of 796,600 sold units is far from pleasing any CEO hoping to turn the expensive device into a hit. Then again, November saw less than 500,000 PS3 consoles leaving the shelves, so the December figure was actually one step further. In the mean time,PlayStation 2 was happy to report sales of 1.1 million units.
Still, all such figures have been basically crushed by the DS' sales results. Nintendo's handheld console has December 2007 as one of its peaks, with 2.47 million units sold. The PSP only managed to go past the one million units milestone, which is less than half of what the DS sold.
