Jan 09 to Jan 2010 just for comparison’s sake…

Wii: 679,200 / 465,800
NDS: 510,800 / 422,200
X360: 309,000 / 332,800
PS3: 203,200 / 276,900
PSP: 172,300 / 100,100
PS2: 101,200 / 41,600



So what do we learn?  The Wii is still ahead, but demand has slowed considerably.  360 and PS3 demand is up though, so that can't be blamed on a slow economy.  PS2 demand is waaaaay down.  I think last year was the PS2's last gasp, and we'll see new systems off the shelf shortly.

Also, people, I'm begging you: Stop buying Just Dance.  Please.
