GameDaily a second chart to set the "record straight" that third-party titles do sell on the Wii -- when comparing all consoles for the first 19 months. We contacted NPD to get a little more objective perspective on the matter and the company broke down some data and answered our questions about the true impact of Wii Play.
For the first 20-months at market, which is pretty much what the above graph shows, this is the breakdown:
- Wii: 60 million software units total, 56% are third-party units or 33 million (Nov. '06 through June '08)
- Xbox 360: 35 million software units, 84% third-party or 29 million (Nov. '05 through June '07)
- PS3: 25 million software units, 82% third-party or 20 million (Nov. '06 through June '08)
