July 2014 NPD Thread! PS4: 187k, XBO: 131k, Wii U: 81k

in Sales Discussion 6 days ago

It's looking like PS4 will be about 1m below where Wii & PS2 were after two US holidays, 15 months for PS2, 14 months for Wii & PS4. Xbox 1 is selling pretty horribly actually, it's just obscured by the fact that Wii U is selling even worse somehow. X1 is probably going to end up at 2.2-2.8m or something for the year, vs. maybe 1.5-1.7m for Wii U.  For 30 weeks we have average...

July 2014 NPD Thread! PS4: 187k, XBO: 131k, Wii U: 81k

It's pretty minor. Wii jumped from 400k to 700k in Feb 08 to March 08 with Smash, and then stayed at 700k+ a month. Then from March to April Wii went from over 700k in five weeks (over 140k / week) to over 700k in four weeks (over 175k / week).  Wii U went from 15k / week in May to 28k / week in June. The Mario Kart boost is essentially 40% of what it was on Wii....

Mario Kart had some impact...but I think it's more along the lines of a big spike in week one, and then MK adding 5,000-8,000 a week to the Wii U baseline in the weeks after week one. The Wii U being bundled / "more of a value" proposition is a large part of why it's up this year vs. last year. Having more games always helps too....
