Some people seem to look at the Wii declining massively YoY and see that as troubling for the Wii, but really it's troubling for the HD consoles, that the Wii is down so drastically and STILL keeping pace with the HD consoles :P

Anyway, I can't say I feel bad about the Wii decline. It simply needs games. If Nintendo won't realease them, then that means they must not care much about the Wii's decline either, so why should I? Basically, Nintendo will be in charge of their own fate from here on out.

They've clearly shifted focus to 3DS. Though Zelda and DQX will still be huge, and I expect some announcements of more motion plus games soon. Then there is still the possibility of Vitality Sensor, although the lack of talk about it lately is suspicious, and I wouldn't be surprised if they delayed it for their next console, or scrapped it all together.

I 100% agree with the bold as Wii isn't doing bad at all...I never really get why people seem to think Wii is doing terrible and the PS3 and 360 is doing great as Wii is ahead of PS3 and 3K away from 360. Yes, I understand that it is doing bad compared to its older #'s but its still doing great!

@ The underlined and Italicized: I personally think and hope that it will be at Iwata's GDC conference since it is about the future...IMO it would be the perfect place to show it but if its not shown there then I agree its been delayed or canceled.

Kinect games are doing really good. Move not so much.

Less than 3% between the 3 home consoles...

and 360 wins!!  statistical tie my arse.  

I know that your kind of kidding(due to that winking face) but I actually agree with you. I hate it when people say under-tracked or Over-tracked or statistical tie...I don't even own a 360 and though it only won by 3K it still won IMO...statistical ties are annoying as crap and as far as I am concerned don't exist LOL!

For example, uDraw Studio apparently has sold 1.2 Million but VGC has it at 970K or so...I am a fan of uDraw but I am not considering it as under-tracked until VGC says it is...who knows? THQ could have meant shipped and not sold so as of now 970K is what I am going by.

I know I got kind of off topic but I hate when people say that stuff LOL.

Anyway...where is Mario Sports Mix? Mario Sports Mix came out in Australia on the 28th didn't it? I know the U.K isn't until February 4th but Australian sales count as Others right? Is VGC just going to combine the 1st week of sales for Australia and the U.K and just call it week 1 or is it not being tracked?

well the reason people say things like that is because there has on many ocasion been adjustments.  Last year when the 360 had been on top for a very long time sudenly it turned out it had been switiching off many weeks with the 360. 

So when the margin of difference is smaller than the margin of error it's very possible that things could reverse but they could widen as well. 

What's anoying is when some people say it's a tie when there consule is down but then say it's a win when it's up.

LOL...that is even more annoying. 

I know why people say it but its still annoying...how do they know its over or under tracked? They just seem to say it every week. It also seems that people tend to say it when there system or game isn't doing as well as they have hoped. I don't mind people stating adjustments when they have already been made but I find it annoying when people say it so much before it even happens. For example, If a game or system I enjoy does get adjusted up I may post about it too because I like it but I don't like when people post adjustments that are not even official. Also, IMO statistical ties still don't exist...somebody wins every week in my book even if its by a single unit sold.



I think the most important part of this data is.

 

1.) Kinect Adventures will be the best selling Xbox game ever if they continue to bundle it.

2.) Alan Wake is at .95 million! Add in digital sales I think it is safe to say it has passed the million mark. Word of mouth really helped this game.

You have to understand what a statistical tie is - consider the margin of error. With that, it IS a statistical tie between the Wii/PS3/360. 

Edit: What's happening is (and all sides have done it), people are hung up on the word "tie". The consoles aren't "tied" in exact numbers, but are statistically tied within the margin of error.

I do understand that VGC is guesstimating but its still annoying...I say 360>Wii>PS3 for this week and you can't say I am biased at all because I don't own a 360 and I like Wii and PS3 better. Its just my opinion anyway so nobody has to agree with me.

Also, do you know the answer to my M.S.M question? Does VGC always just wait when a game comes out in Australia before the U.K?

Can't wait for the likely suspects to come in

"a tie, great stuff" because PS3 didn't come first lol

The damage control for even if a console gets outsold by a few k is hilarious.

edit - LOL, damn wish I got this in before psrock

I like how the PS3 fans are supposedly the only ones that do it.

Edit: Saying console would be less controversial and for each crowd less hypocritical.



The damage control in this thread fails to cover up the fact that.........360 basicly did this to ps3

You're probably gonna get in trouble for this post.

All I will say is that a difference of 7k is not what I'd use to justify such a picture.



Rockstar: Announce Bully 2 already and make gamers proud!

Kojima: Come out with Project S already!
