Anyways does anybody know if in the guitar hero sales do they count the number of optical discs sold or the discs+guitar. Because if they count the bundle and Vgchartz uses the optical disc sales there could be some difference. Anybody knows?

If your post is accurate, they count both, separately. Notice the "w/" (with) vs. "w/o" (without).

Wow at Wii numbers, that really is a huge increase compared to last month. 360 is actually pretty good, although it is over tracked by this site quite a bit. Still they did over 90k a week and including the other parts of the Americas it must be above 100k per week for October. PS3 numbers are once again far from impressive, although on a weekly basis it is up by around 25% compared to last month. But the numbers don't support the earlier claim from Sony about selling 75k units in the last week of this NPD period.

PS3 still seems to hold the Guitar Hero III crown, considering both versions combined sold around 500k. Halo 3 dropped faster than I had expected, Orange Box sales are lower than expected based on this sites numbers and Brain Age 2 is already showing its legs.

?

edit : ok now I know you mean PS2. Ok my bad



R& C numbers are only from one day .

I knew 360 was massively overtracked .

We still lack the Canada numbers though ,those can put some plattforms quite close to the vgcartz number (PS3 ,PSP ) .

 You're right, I just copy pasted it. That means that the PS2 was undertracked and the Xbox360 was overtracked. So it was PS2>Xbox360>Wii after all (according to NPD)



Thesimexchange has total GH III sales for 360 on 490.8k and for PS3 at 105.8k
Neogaf has Metroid Prime 3 at 45.2k and Ace Combat 6 at 92.5k

Hardware isn't bad.  Still going through the software.

I'll have my comparison article up in a few hours



People are difficult to govern because they have too much knowledge.

When there are more laws, there are more criminals.

- Lao Tzu

-These do not include Canada sales
-Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron is a pack in
-DS hardware is intentionally 10% or so higher
-Guitar Hero III on 360 presumably has a stand alone version as well, so not as different as it first looks.

I believe NPD have been undertracking Xbox360 for the last few months so I'm pretty happy with the comparisons - we are intentionally tracking higher than NPD on 360.

Note - I WILL NOT be making any major alterations to our figures in light of NPDs information. Most software is actually almost identical and it is 360 software we disagree most on.

 Ratchet and clank hat over a week!



hmm 360 numbers are most likely 150-250k off
(got to include canadian data)
Also doesnt NPD not include walmart, which means they are always a bit lower for all 3 consoles?



                 With regard to Call of Duty 4 having an ultra short single player campaign, I guess it may well have been due to the size limitations of DVD on the XBox 360, one of various limitations multi-platform game designers will have to take into consideration-Mike B   

Proud supporter of all 3 console companys

Proud owner of 360wii and DS/psp              

Game trailers-Halo 3 only dissapointed the people who wanted to be dissapointed.

Bet with Harvey Birdman that Lost Odyssey will sell more then Blue dragon did.

Last month TheSource made a prediction of 360k for the 360 in October. I laughed at that thinking it was way too low. It turns out it was right on the money (366k). Good job Source!
