The Wii was seriously undertracked. The Wii isn't dead yet. It outsold the PS3 by 50K. I knew the 360 was undertracked. Guess i was wrong about the PS3 being overtracked.

Microsoft needs to rehire Ed Fries and get rid of Shane Kim,

Wait a minute. Looks like I'm too late. Kim has already retired.

Ok, good. Not hire Ed Fries back. lol!! The two guys who are overseeing Microsoft Game Studios and the XBox 360 software are doing a terrible job.

I'm talking about over the last 2 yrs. In the first 2 years of the XBox 360 they always had a slew of exclusives throughout the year. At least 1-2 games every 1-2 months, and a bunch 3-5 in Nov & Dec. Lately M$ software overseers  have been slacking off. Shane Kim honestly didn't do much. Yeah, he did acquire some games that were exclusive only to PS3 & Nintendo (DMC, FF, Tekken, Banjo Kazooie, Ace Combat, Perfect Dark etc..). He also got some great exclusives in Gears, Halo, Left 4 Dead, Morrowind, Dead Rising, Kameo, Comdemned, DOA4, etc... That was all great for the first 2 years, but now, in the last 2 years, we haven't seen the plethora or exclusives we once had. Sure we have Gears and Halo still. We're getting Kingdoms and about 7-8 Kinect exclusives, but there definitely should be more exclusives earlier in the year for the XBox 360. Why not make another Crimson Skies, Conkers, Killer Instinct, MecAssault, Perfect Dark, Links or Shenmue 3  (Yu Suzuki has already stated he wants to make Shenmue 3, whynot fund that?). I love my XBox 360, but if Microsoft wants to move forward and push the 360 for the 10yrs, they are going to need more then 3-4 exclusives for the XBox 360 (I'm not talking about Kinect exclusives) each year. They are going to need at least 10-12 , every year. I'll wait for the E3, but Microsoft better have a huge, huge lineup of exclusives for the next 6 months. There's no 360 Slim or Kinect to launch this time, so they must concentrate on the games now.

That's funny - Wii = DS to the nearest thousand.

Oh, and PSP was undertracked 8k. That's huge, like over 10%, xD.

Wonder if we'll find leaked PS2 numbers for recent/upcoming months anytime soon.

Also, seems MVC3 sold more on 360 than PS3.  A bit of a surprise after SF4.


Not really.
