Quantcast
The OFFICIAL Apr 2007 NPD Thread

Forums - Sales Discussion - The OFFICIAL Apr 2007 NPD Thread

Here we go again boys and girls, it's the official April 2007 NPD thread. The numbers are due tonight at the normal time, I will edit this post when we get them.

Let's make this the biggest build up thread yet. How much will DS and Wii manage to sell - did they get big shipments in? Will PS3 be below 100k? How will 360 elite and PSP price cut get on? Will Pokemon be number 1 (has to be a cert) - how about Paper Mario, Spider-Man 3?

How close will VG Chartz be this month?

What are your expectations, fears, worries, what would be a success / failure, will Bunkum arrive and spill the goods here first, will there be tears, tantrums, arguments and fights?

This is your last chance to enter any predictions before the numbers are out so go for it and may the force be with you all !!!!!!



I think VGChartz will be pretty close, but still off by 10% or so. Games that could certainly be off: Pokemon (could be a bit higher, upto 15%) Guitar Hero 2 X360 (higher, upto 10%) Super Paper Mario (again, higher by 10-20%) Wii Play could be slightly too high, but I could be wrong. Overall, should be pretty close.



Back from the dead, I'm afraid.

The PSP could have been so much higher if they had bothered to have tied in the price reduction with a few new exciting games....but reckon that 200k will be about right



Prediction (June 12th 2017)

Permanent pricedrop for both PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro in October.

PS4 Slim $249 (October 2017)

PS4 Pro $349 (October 2017)

Anybody knows when the data is coming?

 Don't forget that NPD only accounts for US numbers, so VGCharts numbers should be above NPD numbers



Hang on... so are the VGChartz figures (US weekly) for North America, or for the USA? Wedbush is trying to predict NPD figures... right? Waiting to see if the PS3 slips under 100k...

The sampled time frame is a bit shorter for NPD too, isn't it?

Because even though Sony only has one foot in the grave doesn't mean we can't start dancing on it.

Seriously though, I'll say it'll be VGChartz + or - 20%, which is good enough for me.
