The week of Thanksgiving marks one of the most important retail milestones for sellers of things. We've got a ballpark figure for how many people brought the new Wii U. (Around 400,000.) And Microsoft bragged about all the Xbox 360 units they shifted into people homes, too. (750,000 for those guys.) So, what about Sony? They're right in the middle.
The consumer electronics giant divulged that they sold more than half a million units of their home console, owed largely to the attractively priced bundles on offer.
As for the Vita, the gaming handheld sold 160,000 units. That's a lot less than the 275,000 DS units Nintendo said that consumers bought last week. When another company's least-shiny, most outdated portable outdoes your shiny new one, you might have a problem on your hands, Sony.
[Update: As noted in the comments below, the DS also outsold Nintendo's newer 3DS too.]
