NPD ranking (VGC) Game NPD numbers VGC numbers difference
8 (5) Killzone 3 280K 205k 75k (37% undertracked)

Killzone 3 was more undertracked because NPD does't track units sold with hardware bundles while VGC does.

"NPD’s February numbers illustrate continued growth of the entire PlayStation 3 ecosystem, including increases in hardware, software and peripheral sales. PlayStation’s exclusive titles, combined with stereoscopic 3D and precision motion controlled gaming, continue to resonate with consumers, and we look forward to furthering the momentum with MotorStorm Apocalypse and SOCOM 4 next month," said Patrick Seybold, Sr. Director of Corporate Communications at SCEA.

 

 

 

At least one of those won't be at the next NPD report.

I think both wont be.

Don't they both have April release dates?



Disconnect and self destruct, one bullet a time.

So Killzone 3 sold at least 650k first week with bundles.

EDIT: NVM, thought you meant U.S. only lol

actually it doesn't look like it.

The Source wrote PS3 sold 328k this month, which is 87% of the Americas sales
He also wrote Killzone 3 sold 205k, which is only 81% of the Americas sales (87% would be 221k)

so unless he uses a different percentage specifically for PS3 games (which I didn't check and I doubt since he uses the same one for the PS3 consoles) he either made a mistake or took off 16k that were sold as bundles, thus making it undertracked by 75k.

And 87% is the usual marketshare of the US in the Americas.



Black Ops is undertracked by 3 million. NPD has both versions at 13.7m while VGC has them at 10.73m.

NPD has ALL versions at 13.7m
VGC has ALL versions at 11.5m

 

Still undertracked - true. Over 400k this month alone.



So PS3 was on top for the whole of February WW? Where is this guy that told me to wait for NPD numbers because he thought PS3 was being way overtracked?

lol, forgot about the Wii and PC versions.



Black Ops (PS3) must be majorly undertracked. First, Activision announces it's PS3's best selling game ever and then this...

we really don't know the ps3 numbers (only microsoft and nintendo revealed their numbers). all we know it sold better than last month (more than 267,000)



Just want to play good games
