Wedbush/Pachter

Xbox 360 is likely to be the top selling console in the U.S. June NPD sales report releasing this Thursday, according to Wedbush Securities. Analyst Michael Pachter has forecast 355,000 units sold (down 21%), compared to 325,000 Wii units (down 23%), 290,000 DS units (down 43%), 240,000 PS3 units (down 21%) and 165,000 3DS units.

Overall, the month of June didn't appear to treat the U.S. games industry well, as Wedbush estimates that software sales dipped 6% to $500 million while hardware dropped 21%. It was a very light release schedule likely driven by Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D (3DS), Take-Two’s Duke Nukem Forever (PS3, 360, PC), and Sony’s Infamous 2(PS3) with continued strong sales of Take-Two’s L.A. Noire.

Someone is going to be a way off here...... Not sure who yet. But I sense vgc has wii to high.



I'm not really here!

Nintendo hardware will be so over the place, on one side I think VGC might have overtracked the Wii by 100-50k, on the other side I think they might have done the opposite for the DS family.



 

good numbers



My guess?

Wii- Over 50k
PS3- Over 10k
360- About right
3DS- Under 15k
PSP- Under 20k
DS- Under 30k

I feel more confident about the consoles than the handhelds.



 

Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

..one of these days i wish the source would learn how to put together a proper chart. sourcing, titles (and accurate titles at that), significant figures, and alignment are important concepts.

Hey, we can dream, right?

Personally I don't think it looks TOO bad, but it could look better. Maybe I'm just used to it by now

 

@Seece- Will that thread title be updated hourly? So, what time can we expect these numbers over here in the UK? I guess...11PM?

"NPD will be releasing totals for the USA video game market this Thursday at 6:30 PM EST, covering the five weeks ending July 2, 2011.  ..."  followed by:

..if NPD hasn't released their data for june yet why are we reporting NPD numbers for June?  Is this chart expected NPD data?  Is this a mix of NPD data and VGC data?  Is this only VGC numbers? Why do I have to follow VGC for years in order to know the answers?
