Forums - Sales Discussion - April 2012 NPD 360 HW 236k, PS3 175k, Wii 91k

So 360 under 40K and the rest over ?

what a shitty month



Prototype 2 sold under 236k.

Okay either chartz is WAY out or that image from gamebiz is way off. It has prototype 2 above kinect star wars.

Chartz has Prototype 2 (360+Ps3) at 264k.
While Star wars is at 382k.

Yet that image has Prototype above Kinect SW. What's going on there?

The new guy doing the US figures is still learning...but based on what Anita said, I don't think anything topped 250,000 in the US for sw or hw. Consoles overall are down like 30% in units (more with PS2) - which means portables are down a lot too for instance.

X360 is still leading the US market, but its down 20% on 2011 so far - on pace for 5.7m at the moment if you take last year's total and subtract 20%...As a coincidence, the Jan-Apr 2012 figure is also almost exactly the same as Jan-Apr 2010 / Jan-April 2009 when X360 sold 6.7m / 4.7m respectively...which makes quite a bit of sense for 5.7m in 2012 barring a big time change in the coming months.

VGchartz estimates:

X360: 88,726 + 67,761 + 67,468 + 64,001 = 287,956
PS3: 54,974 + 52,351 + 54,403 + 59,818 = 221,546
3DS: 52,501 + 49,139 + 45,897 + 43,556 = 191,093
Wii: 35,822 + 33,795 + 32,659 + 32,034 = 134,310
PSV: 27,986 + 25,443 + 26,182 + 24,945 = 104,556
DS: 17,393 + 18,603 + 17,888 + 16,658 = 70,542



Prototype 1 launch numbers = 599,100
Prototype 2 launch numbers apparently > 236K (yet still #1 for the month)



Hang on, there's still hope!

From Eurogamer:

"Acclaimed Wii RPG Xenoblade Chronicles was a retailer exclusive, so is excluded from NPD's monthly report."

 

Edit:

99% chance for being totally not true...



I don't think that the SW HW bundles have been counted by NPD, so 360 might be or less on target with the NPD. PS3 looks to be slightly overtracked unless Wii dropped below 100k.



Disconnect and self destruct, one bullet a time.

Eh? NPD track HW bundles but doesnt count SW for it.

Aww Beat me to it.

Anyway here are the totals for hardware according to VGchartz (excluding PSP, and DS )

Home Console Total ( Wii, 360, PS3 )

643,812

Handheld Total ( 3DS, PSV,  )

295,649

Looks like the Home conoles are overtracked.

I have a feeling that the handlhelds are overtracked as well.
