April NPD Thread

Forums - Sales Discussion - April NPD Thread

Didn't see one here yet but today the NPD comes out.

So far we know according to Major Nelson and Greenberg that the 360 was top selling console in April and up 60% compared to last year.

This also probably means the DS or 3DS was overall #1.

#NPD just released April sales & Xbox 360 continues to be best selling console of 2011 up 60% over last year

 

may 2010. ( 194k)

 

so around 300k for 360.

Also if 360 is top selling console at less than 300k, it's going to be ugly for the other consoles including 3ds.

Bump - this is good enough as a thread since we're 40 minutes away now from whatever gets released. Up 60% would be around 300,000 units for X360.

Should it not be the April 2010 figures, which are 185.4k? Negligible difference really, still around the 280-300k mark, just curious



I have 194k for May not April. In April 2010 X360 was 185,400.

185.4k * 1.6 = 297,000 (thereabouts)

Given March sales, thats a drop from about 87,000 per week to 75,000 per week in the USA.

10k difference anyway, and I think you are right.
