September is 5 weeks.

Oh okay, thanks for the info! I thought wiiU was mega overtracked i n August thinking we still had one more week of sale to add up. 


There have been adjustments made, before the data for the week ending 30 Aug was released WiiU had already sold over 60k in the first three weeks of the month, which if uncorrected would have ended with WiiU selling ~80k instead of 73k on VGC (compared to NPD's 59.7k). Small adjustment, but as a percentage overtrack from NPD its still pretty large (34% pre-adjustment, 22% post adjustment).

I assume a similar thing has occurred to the other consoles, which is why VGC is fairly close, because when I was looking at the numbers a few days ago there was some pretty large delta's (3DS was another one thats been corrected a lot). 

 


Funnier than VGC being off even adjusting their numbers after NPD was revealed is that they downcut the PS4 by 110k (as reported here) when they were still 250k downtracking even when they corrected to reflect Sony 10M report. Go figure why they do these witchcrafties.

I don't know why the people think that this 60K for Wii U is so bad... yeah, isn't much good, i agree, but fuck, is increase of 100% by last year without
without game: 60K
with Pikmin: 30K !!!

Mario Kart is coming 3 month ago...
And Wii U have sold good for 2 month only with this game, so, isn't a succes, but isn't "doom", next month will even back +100K costant for rest of year.



Sorry, double post.

It isn't "so bad" just "bad" because it is dropping from previous summer months, meaning MK8 effect is slowing down... already at bellow 50k weekly. Sure it is a incredible growth over last year, but still is bad news.

Both 60k or 30k for a month are both horrible numbers. Happy? 

Wii U has had Mario 3D World, Zelda WWHD, Wii Party U, $299.99 NSMBU bundle, DKC, Mario Kart 8, Rayman, etc. launched from last year to this year, so I dunno, they've spent a lot of their "big guns" and all they have to show for it is an extremely mediocre baseline that's well below 100k and GameCube level sales. 

In fact Gamecube Aug 2003 is 100k, that's more than Wii U's Aug 2013 and 2014 combined and Aug 2003 was a really weak month for the GameCube (Nintendo cut the price the following month).

Because 60k IS a bad figure. No matter what the circumstances, a console isn't going anywhere (sales wise) on 60k a month. And it's dropping month over month.

It illustrates the old adage of "lies, damned lies, and statistics." Those figures are terrible. They were horrific. The increase isn't big in absolute figures. Ergo, "ouch."



+30k for PS4 in August, much much more for september npd
