Nintendo Tops Canadian NPD Sales Numbers

Canadians bought a lot of games too, enough to put them over $1 billion total for the year to date.

November wasn't just a big sales month in the USA, but up north as well. According to estimates released by the NPD Group, Canadian game sales reached $209.1 million Canadian (US $205.6 million), enough to put Canada over a cool billion dollars Canadian in sales for the year 2007 with the month of December still to go.

Just like in the USA, Nintendo figured prominently at the top of the charts. On the hardware side, the DS and Wii delivered a one-two punch with approximately 120,000 and 82,000 units sold respectively. Additionally, Nintendo had two titles in the top 10 software charts. Mario Galaxy took the premier spot after having moved 94,000 copies and Wii Play came in at number five with 51,000 units sold.

Despite selling the most hardware units in the month, no DS title made it into the top 10.

Talkback

Exactly why is that anyways? The DS always sells the most hardware, but it's rare to ever see a software title in the top 10.... pokemon maybe, zelda or mario for a bit... but seriously!

I really hope the next president can bring the U.S dollar back to 2x the candian dollar. No offense to canadians.

It's probably because there are just so many damn DS titles out there.

Then that president will have to get out of Iraq, and sabotage the strong Canadian economy.

Naw, a nuclear strike on Canada will do the job.

Wait, isn't Canadian the country that subsides its largest industry...

He's German. Also, Ceric, your first sentence makes no sense.
