Forums - Sales Discussion - The Official March 2010 NPD Thread (Data for 5 weeks ending Apr 3 2010)

Data is coming in six hours from the time of this post...

It covers the five weeks ending April 3 2010, February was four weeks. March 2009 was also five weeks.

Our preview is here...

Our USA HW estimates are above, USA SW estimates are below.

Looks like a good month for Nintendo, Square-Enix, EA, and Sony in terms of software sales.

Waiting...



Wow, 1 million for Bad Company 2 on the X360 alone. I hope and do believe that NPD will 'confirm' that number.



I'm wondering...

Do NPD seperate the Pokemon games numbers?



I think they do, yes.



Gonna be a good month for everybody, and I can't to see who was the best...hehe



Interested to know how Vgc have done in comparison to NPD over the past 12 months?

Well here is the info! I would put it in one of those fancy graphs but i don't know how to do it :(

Please note this is just showing you the results, this is not opinion, this is not saying VGC are wrong or NPD are right.It is just showing results and %. And that is what this website is about right?

So based on the last 12 months results how has each console done in terms of numbers on here compared to NPD's numbers? I only did the main three consoles as to be fair i don't think many care about the handhelds. If they do then by all means do those :)

So here we are

Feb 2010
ps3 - undertracked
360 - undertracked
wii - overtracked

Jan 2010
ps3 - overtracked
360 - undertracked
wii - overtracked


Dec 2009
ps3 - undertracked
360 - overtracked
wii - undertracked


Nov 2009
ps3 - overtracked
360 - undertracked
wii - undertracked


Oct 2009
ps3 - overtracked
360 - overtracked
wii - overtracked


Sept 2009
ps3 - undertracked
360 - undertracked
wii - undertracked

August 2009
ps3 - undertracked
360 - undertracked
wii - overtracked

July 2009
ps3 - overtracked
360 - undertracked
wii - overtracked

June 2009
ps3 - overtracked
360 - undertracked
wii - overtracked

May 2009
ps3 - overtracked
360 - undertracked
wii - overtracked

April 2009
ps3 - overtracked
360 - overtracked
wii - overtracked

March 2009
ps3 - overtracked
360 - overtracked
wii - overtracked

Some %

Based on past 12 months
PS3 overtracked 8 out of 12 months. = 66% chance of overtracking
360 overtracked 4 out of 12 months = 33% chance of overtracking
wii overtracked 9 of 12 months = 75% chance of overtracking


ps3 undertracked 4 of 12 months = 33% chance of undertracking
360 undertracked 8 of 12 months = 66% chance of undertracking
wii undertracked 3 of 12 months = 25% chance of undertracking

Making 360 twice as likely to be undertracked then the other two consoles
and making PS3 and Wii twice as likely to be overtracked then the 360.

Again these are just numbers in comparison to NPD numbers. Neither one is right or wrong, just a comparison.



Should prove interesting. Shortages came to an end this month.

I doubt it, but don't quote me on that.



themanwithnoname's law: As an America's sales or NPD thread grows longer, the probabilty of the comment "America = World" [sarcasticly] being made approaches 1.

I predict meltdowns.
