The Official Dec 2009 NPD Thread (Data for 5 weeks ending Jan 2 in 5 hrs)

Forums - Sales Discussion - The Official Dec 2009 NPD Thread (Data for 5 weeks ending Jan 2 in 5 hrs)

NPD will release its data for the USA video game market over the five weeks ending January 2, 2010 at about 6:30 PM EST (a little less than five hours from now). We should also get some stats for the year 2009 as a whole.

Nintendo and Sony have already issued some press-releases for the period.

Nintendo

" We think we sold over 3m Wiis in December" (probably 3.1m/3.2m)

" DS set an all time yearly record for a hardware system in the USA (i.e. it sold at least 2.2m to get the record, but less than 3.0m since you'd have to think Nintendo would issue a different statement for DS if it was above Wii or 3m again)"

Sony

" PS3 had its best month ever in the USA. We sold 90% more than last December" (~1.35m ish is likely)

It was also an excellent month for software - we estimate that over 160 games sold over 100,000 units in the United States.

Our preview is here.

You don't like then don't buy it

 

A market actually likes those games.

 

So your saying the games you play that kill things are so much better?
