Galaxy 2 sells a mil in the US

According a press release issued by Nintendo this morning, sales of Super Mario Galaxy 2 have crossed the 1 million mark in North America.

Also in June, Nintendo systems sold a combined 933,000 units, accounting for 50 percent of all gaming hardware units sold in the US. The Nintendo DS family systems topped the charts with more than 510,000 handhelds sold, bringing life-to-date unit sales to nearly 42 million.

Wii system sales totaled more than 422,000, closing in on a cumulative milestone of 30 million units sold in the US alone.

"Consumers continue to look to Nintendo for exceptional value and one-of-a-kind gaming experiences. Between games like Super Mario Galaxy 2, the pioneering motion controls of the Wii system and the portable fun of Nintendo DS systems, Nintendo offers something for everyone. As we prepare to launch a remarkable lineup of new games in the second half of the year, we are grateful that consumers are supporting Nintendo consoles to continue their run as the nation?s most popular game systems."
Cammie Dunaway, NoA VP of Sales & Marketing.

X360slim had its impact that will phaze away just like ps3 slim did, ps3 remains in 3rd place where it belongs. Wii remains the most stable and DS just keeps on kicking ass, to think by years end we could have DS, DSi, 3DS and Wii vs ps3 x360 and the dead psp is funny in itself. These huge games coming to Wii, some of witch could be system sellers, like donkey kong, zelda and metroid, kirby's epic yarn also could do very well. I think the must have 3DS will eat into kinect and move sales. Sony are in a hard place right now.
