I'm still saying we undertracked Pokemon, we have lower numbers for it in America than NPD on the US

Bet between Slimbeast and Arius Dion about Wii sales 2009:


If the Wii sells less than 20 million in 2009 (as defined by VGC sales between week ending 3d Jan 2009 to week ending 4th Jan 2010) Slimebeast wins and get to control Arius Dion's sig for 1 month.

If the Wii sells more than 20 million in 2009 (as defined above) Arius Dion wins and gets to control Slimebeast's sig for 1 month.

I'm expecting PS3 to be slightly undertracked and come around 230k...
MLB The show 2010 will make the top 30 too...



PS3-Xbox360 gap : 1.5 millions and going up in PS3 favor !

PS3-Wii gap : 20 millions and going down !

soon?

**** All numbers are fake!



Just to be clear. The numbers in the OP are VGC estimates of USA only sales. i.e. they are not a straight regurgitation of the "Americas" numbers. So they are directly comparable to NPD data.
