According to NPD data, US sales of video game consoles were fairly strong in July.
The Sony (SNE) PS3 sold 159,000 units, well up from previous months. SNE has just cut the price for the product by $100.
The industry-leading Nintendo Wii stayed out in front with 425,000 units.
Microsoft Xbox 360 sold 170,000 units. That was down 18% from the same period a year ago, but, as CNET points out, it’s not bad given the quality problems that the product has faced.
