Nice chart showing revenue for the month. 360 going strong.
I have my doubt that hardware chart is completely right. For this to be correct Xbox 360 needs to have an average price of almost twice that of a Wii and PS3 even needs an average price of over 2.5 times that of the Wii.
that's what I'm wondering too. I think it mentioned in the article that the average selling price for 360 is $290 which means average selling price for Wii is almost $150 for the month. Wii was sold at $50 discount of MSRP for the whole month?
Lets do some Algebra to figure out avg sales prices of the 3 consoles.
We know that total hardware revenue is $1.08 billion.
We know that X360 avg price was $290.
We know that between the 3 consoles the revenue split was X360 46%, PS3 29%, Wii 24%.
X360 revenue is $290*1,370,000 = 397,300,000
Formula for total revenue is X*.46=397,300,000 solve for X.
So revenue per console
Avg price of console
Wii = $177 = $207,286,956 / 1,170,000
PS3 = $472 = $250,471,739 / 530,000 - This doesnt seem right
360 = $290 = $397,300,000 / 1,370,000
Everything seems right except the PS3 avg price. No way was the PS3 avg price was $472. Did I calculate something wrong. Wii avg price was heavily effected by special pricing.
