Hummmmm...

My prediction this time

360: 420k (on spot or a little over VGC shows)
PS3: 320k (a little over VGC shows)
Wii: 250k (a little under VGC shows)

The others I don't know... 3DS is the hardest do say.



10 hours? then why did you post it now, you couldnt have waited till there was an hour or two to go?

you posted just to say that? 

we always start a NPD thread well in advance...

ignore it for 9 hours if it makes you feel better.

Because people here love to make predictions and speculate a bit. Some numbers are released before too.

hopefully 3DS won't be overtracked again

If Pachter predicts 265k, then wouldn't that be "lower" than the VGC estimate of 290k?




starcraft: "I and every PS3 fanboy alive are waiting for Versus more than FFXIII.
Me since the games were revealed, the fanboys since E3."

Skeeuk: "playstation 3 is the ultimate in gaming acceleration"

me think 360 at 430K, PS3 at 311K and Wii 174K,  I expect 3DS to be over tracked too by a tidy amount.
