This is simple domination on Nintendo’s front. All added up, Nintendo has 3,994,987 sales of hardware in 2007 alone, and it’s early May. That is compared to only 1,608,438 for all other companies combined. That gives Nintendo a total of 71% of the total market share for all gaming devices in the first half of 2007. And, judging by the previous week, these are trends that will continue through the end of the this week. I fear that with the upcoming holiday season, which will see games like Metroid Prime 3, Mario Galaxy, and Super Smash Brawl, this could be the year of Nintendo.
