The Nintendo Wii was the best-selling home console in the US during 2010 according to new NPD data.
The system sold 2.36 million units in the month of December spurred on by strong software support from Donkey Kong Country Returns and Just Dance 2.
Microsoft’s Xbox 360 took second place with 1.86 million sales and the PlayStation 3 was caught third with 1.21 million units sold.
Overall year sales for the DS and Wii systems in the US come out at over 8.5 million and 7 million units respectively.
"Nintendo has sold more game systems than anyone else for five years running," said Nintendo of America’s senior director of corporate communications Charlie Scibetta.
"Of the quarter billion hardware systems sold in the United States during the past 10 years, Nintendo sold more than half. We look forward to bringing fun new experiences to consumers when Nintendo 3DS launches in March."
2011 is already lining up to be another great year for Nintendo with Pokemon Black & White, The Nintendo 3DS and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword all launching throughout the year.
