“When we make some new announcement and if there is no positive initial reaction from the market, I try to think of it as a good sign because that can be interpreted as people reacting to something groundbreaking. ...if the employees were always minding themselves to do whatever the market is requiring at any moment, and if they were always focusing on something we can sell right now for the short term, it would be very limiting. We are trying to think outside the box.” - Satoru Iwata - This is why corporate multinationals will never truly understand, or risk doing, what Nintendo does.

Even with the drops the Wii is still outselling the compettion.Whoever kept saying that Wii needs a price cut should shut up once and for all.

Kinect didn't pushed consoles. Not even the price cut and new model helped that much to MS. It had improvements yes but is still in 3d place.

Move is forsaken and no surprises for PS3 here. Poor GT5.

Haven't you just been banned for comments like this? Trolling anything that isn't Nintendo?

You used to actually be a decent poster... What happened? The last few Months of the Wii in 2nd/3rd place Weekly get to you or something?

Please those were just a few months and it wasn't that big deal.

I am just pointing about the numbers. How is that trolling?  I admit that the last post was too much but this? Gimme a break! No need to be so sensitive seriously.



Got a quick question :

I remember a poster / mod saying that NPD only tracks certain retailers in the US. Is that true ?



Who's the best Pac, Nas, and Big. Just leave it to that.

what was Vgchartz number for GT5 this month? NPD has it at 560k..........


~695k I think.

You think? more like you know!  About 695k is correct. 

I saw it originally in the first post but didn't feel like going back to check and just put down what I thought I saw.

I was right.



iPhone = Great gaming device. Don't agree? Who cares, because you're wrong.

No offense but this just gives nintendo fans a bad name. While you made one valid point, you cannot deny the sucess of Microsoft brand this Christmas.  Kinect did push consoles, not as much as originally shown, but still moved consoles. Also it is not in third place. 

Yes it is:

DS        2,500,000       

Wii       2,360,000        

X360    1,860,000

And I know it sold on xmas but is obvious that is slowing down. Look at the numbers.



Funny thing, I expected Dance Central to be huge, but Kinect has more than one big game at once which is amazing to me.

when it comes to PS3, it's so hard to talk about the games sales, they just meh but keeps selling i guess.

You do know xbox360 is up YoY? To deny that kinect had no hand in that, is like to deny nintendo fan from nintendo games. You just don't. 

Wii won, but 360 did well man. 



 

Numbers as i expected. Wii won the holidays though i thought 360 would have sold more.

GT5 Epic Bomb.

Incredible DKCR numbers. And WOW @ Epic Mickey! People thought that game would flop.
