The Wii was thought to break the December record for most units sold, but it appears there wasn't enough supply. Instead, another Nintendo platform, the DS, broke the PS2's December record selling more than three million units total for the last month of 2008. Who would have thunk that an exclusively video game company would lead the industry in America?
