NPD hardware reports for June 2007 have come out slightly
ahead of schedule. While the results aren't very surprising, Sony
has made a few strides here and there. First off, the Nintendo DS
has sold a staggering 561k handhelds – a truly mind boggling
number. The Nintendo Wii is easing from production constraints,
and thus selling an equally phenomenal 382k units. And fresh off
its price-drop, the PSP went on to sell an impressive 290k
systems. Meanwhile, the seven year old PlayStation 2 took in
another 270k for Sony.

Performance of the Xbox 360 improved with 198k sold. The GameBoy
Advance saw some spark and went on to sell 114k. And the
PlayStation 3 saw a boost of 16k in sales, with 98k consoles
sold. With Sony cutting the price two weeks ago by $100, claiming
doubled sales and retailers announcing sell outs – the July NPD
should be very interesting.
