    360 Numbers don't add up!

    in Sales Discussion on 20 January 2007

    @ Erik: I distinctly see a post above where people are taking the NPD data and adding in 15% to account for NA. If I'm wrong, what is the 15% for? Either way, vgcharts is adding in 15% off the NPD totals. Something I got poo-pooed for when I tried to go above 10%, and it was repeatedly beat into my head here that EVERYBODY knows this imaginary 10% rule. So, why the difference? Why is...

    360 Numbers don't add up!

    in Sales Discussion on 20 January 2007

    @robjoh They're roughly estimating 2.5 million in extra stock here at vgcharts (10.4 million shipped/7.9 million sold at the end of 2006). 2.5 million is a LOT of stock. That's 25% of all Xbox 360s ever made. I somehow have trouble believeing that 1 out of ever 4 360s to ever roll off the assembly line is now sitting on a store shelf. Go around to each store and see if it looks like if...

    Wow... it's nice to see you guys missed me! (y) I got accused a lot for keeping this conversation afloat and people said they wanted me to leave, but apparently my being gone for a week hasn't slowed things down a bit! I'm not sure I can answer all of your questions, comments, and ideas... but I'd like to start by clarifying a couple things. First off, I originally took on the NA...

    NPD December numbers

    [quote][b]nickg said:[/b] [b]Firelore said:[/b] I think you guys need to rework your Wii numbers. They don't seem feasible based off of the numbers NPD released. Agreed. Your numbers seem too high for certain systems now that we have NPD data for December. I fail to understand why speculated numbers are so easily added for the Wii and PS3, but when it comes the 360, increments are...

I'm not even certain that Nintendo is projecting they'll make 14-15 million units by then (where the 360 is projected). Worldwide yes. It's not going to be that hard for Nintendo to get production up. They...

    [quote][b]catofellow said:[/b] I would agree that the Xbox 360 totals looks a little too low, and that Wii appears a little high, but that is my guess. This debate would be more interesting if it was 2012 and the systems the systems were tied, but now there is still a significant gap between the two systems. It just doesn't matter if there is 4 or 5 million seperating the systems, this site...

Some experts say it is not as good as you say. 1 thing they point out is the Xbox had really good sellling considering it was going up against the PS2 which dominated the entire market. Their reasoning (not mine by the way, these are...

    in Sales Discussion on 11 January 2007

    Also, since I'm feeling nice tonight, I'll let you in on what you're doing wrong, Stromprophet... the Xbox 1 did not do a WW launch. It's why the 360 is so far ahead. However, I think at this point it is clearly outpacing the Xbox 1, and that's why the figures are so far ahead for the 360, and projected to stay well ahead. You're making the mistake of comparing region by region, which look...

Looking at the previoius few post, there is a significant premium above what NPD reports for the NA total on this site.

The Xbox 360 shipped 10 million in 13 months, the Xbox 1 did so in 19 months. Actually, upon checking it was closer to 21 months... they announced in July 2003 they had sold (shipped) 9.4 million units of the...

    [quote][b]Stromprophet said:[/b] [b]Monty said:[/b] While it's a little off topic... just to hammer home HOW much better the 360 is doing than the Xbox1... the Xbox 1 reached 14.5 million on about July of 2004 (the 2 year, 20 month mark). The 360 is on pace to reach that same figure by July of 2007 (the 1 year, 20 month mark). Meaning, by July the 360 will likely be a full year ahead of the...
