Well ,now we have the official NPD numbers and the X360 hastn sold 1.5 million but 1.1 in december and the total cumulated tally is around 4.5 ,with some 2.3 for Europe and 0.3 for Japan ....we could add some 0.45 for the rest of NA for a total of some 7.5 million sold .....7.65 adding Australia if you want . This page ,if everything ,was being extremely optimistic about the X360 sales ,Monty . Now ,I expect them to put down its numbers in the graph in the main page . Also the other consoles ones ....Wii isnt anywhere around 1.8 million sold in NA but 1.1 at 31 dec 1.2 counting rest of NA and a total of 3 not 4 millions sold and PS3 counting the rest of NA should be at around 750 000 and a total of 1.25 million at 31 dec. worldwide . Will you stop now Monty ?
Well ,this show us thatwe have to wait some month and a half if we want to have reliable data and all the other is just guesswork .The numbers of all the consoles were inflated something ,especially the Wii ones . But right now ,either you put yourself above NPD and Media Create and everybody or you must admit the total tally of X360 sold worldwide doesnt exceed 7.6 million by too much .
Monty, NPD data cited here says that these are the top selling games of 2006: http://www.next-gen.biz/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=4525&Itemid=2 Top 10 videogames for 2006 overall (platform specific): The PS2 had five games in this category, the Xbox 360 had three and the DS claimed two. Madden NFL 07, PS2, EAâ2.8 million New Super Mario Bros., DS, Nintendoâ2 million Gears of War, Xbox 360, Microsoftâ1.8 million Kingdom Hearts II, PS2, Square Enixâ1.7 million Guitar Hero II, PS2, Activisionâ1.3 million Final Fantasy XII, PS2, Square Enixâ1.3 million Brain Age: Train Your Brain, DS, Nintendoâ1.1 million Madden NFL 07, Xbox 360, EAâ1.1 million Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter, Xbox 360, Ubisoftâ1 million NCAA Football 07, PS2, EAâ1 million Microsoft has said 2.7 million copies of Gears of War sold (check out www.vgcharts.org...oh wait) It all comes down to timing, and whether the data is presented. But considering Gears sold 800 k in all of December, it seems unlikely (using logic) that the discrepency of 900k could be mostly accounted for in the 11 days of January since December ended. In other words, something has to give. Same is true for hardware sales.

This is in Responce to the Xbox Vs 360 WW sales 360 is even with xbox in America and Japan, but in Europe/Australia it is Way ahead the original xbox did not launch until March in these places, PS2 dominated Europe etc and xbox sales were very slow in Europe, however 360 has sold 900k in UK (Xbox has only sold 2m LTD), it has sold 150k in Australia (360 was fastest console to 100k here). so in other words it has made alot of ground outside of NA and Japan to be ahead WW.
