PopSci just received NDP's video game industry sales results for 2007, meaning we finally have the data to close two New Year's stocks: MADDEN and WIISALES. Both pay out at $0. Madden Football didn't even break the top five, let alone hit number one (that honor went to Halo 3). Trading halted at $7.75; most saw this coming. As for WIISALES, it was a closer call. The Wii didn't outsell PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 combined for the month of December—1.35 million units v. 2.06 million—but it wasn't far off. If supply hadn't lagged, Nintendo surely would have been the winner. Trading was halted on this one at $33.
Thanks for playing, and, as always, happy trading!
