Forums - Sales Discussion - The Official January 2010 NPD Thread (Data = 4 weeks ending Jan 30)

what's with the MAG discussion people? NPD numbers = less than 171k...do you think it's overtracked here in VGC, shame, because NPD doesn't count canada and latin america numbers!
what? are you saying that Jack Tretton is a liar? why? the game sold 300k first week, and we're right now in the 3rd week of this game, it doesn't look CRAZY to say that this game already sold 500k...hell it could sell 200k the second week due to the pre-order shortages in Europe....
AND!
i'm a little bit intrigued by the fanboys looking at the PS3 numbers and saying that they'll not catch up the 2nd place (i'm looking at you Gif in the 2nd page and the people mocking about it.)...do you know that AMERICA, it's the BIGGEST console seller for the 360, and yet they outsold the ps3 by just...55k? we just have to add the Japanese Sales to make the ps3 outsell the 360...and yet we've to add the Europe numbers...and we know that those numbers belongs to the ps3.
SO!
i think the ps3 is catching up the 2nd place don't you think?

Wait, then what was the point of the Bayonetta (PS3)>Bayonetta 360 >Tatsunoko vs. Capcom > No More Heroes 2 analogy?

One multiplatform game was out for 4 weeks as opposed to two games that were out for 4 days.



Leatherhat on July 6th, 2012 3pm. Vita sales:"3 mil for COD 2 mil for AC. Maybe more. "  thehusbo on July 6th, 2012 5pm. Vita sales:"5 mil for COD 2.2 mil for AC."

That means Madworld outsold Bayonetta PS3 it's first NPD btw, even with 1 week less of sales.

AAAUGH

I wish these guys would make a game that could sell. I'm half afraid that publishers will look at NPD numbers and go "Nope, not touching this"

Well, at least retailers bought it up. I mean, those 1.1 million copies will have to go one way or another.


I just wonder how they convinced retailers to stock that much. Crazy.

I'm surprised MadWorld outsold Bayonetta PS3 and got close-ish to the 360 version.

Capcom expected Dark Void to sell 600k in NA + EU. I thought they were crazy.

Boobies are very distracting.

They can send them back and get their money if they got a huge stock that's not moving you know.

Not all the time, the contract when ordering stock isn't uniform between retailers and publishers.
