I think Wii will do alot higher than 300k since Wii U will be nowhere to be found on store shelves during Black Friday sales, and also because of all the people still confused as to whether or not Wii U is a brand new console or yet another peripheral for the Wii.

Other than that, everything else in OP seems right on the money... maybe the original DS sales will be a bit lower but that's about it.

When is Black Friday? ? :)
2 friends of mine want to buy the PS3 Super Slim soon, especially. Because the One Piece and RPG Tales of Graces F Ni No Kuni, and because (the prettiest and most amazing RPG this generation, quite objectively ^ ^) in January comes to Black Friday offers perfectly.

the best RPG's are coming 2013 !!!! oh my god, this is perfect for RPG-GAMER = ) Ni No Kuni - 25 january, Time and Eternity, tales of xillia (PS3) and the maybe best game ever: metal gear solid ground zero

November 23rd, just two weeks after halo4 and a week after COD BO 2.  November will be a huge month for 360, enormous.



I'm not really here!

360 will decimate this holiday season in the US. I didn't realize the gap was so high last year. Maybe the 3ds can give it worthy competition with the new xl model and NSMB 2, but even then, the 3ds has been underselling the 360 in the US for some while. 3ds could very well win worldwide this year though. I want to see what bundles are offered for 360 and 3ds this year.

You skipped Wii U in your predictions.

Since pre-orders are through the roof already as it is and they are hoping for another pre-order allowance before then end I would say that the Wii u, if there is enough shipments, will be on top. 3DS will be huge as well.

This year the economy seems to be on its way back. Every night at Walmart they say their sales are up over last year.

Wii 350,000 ( pending price drop or bundles)

PS3 550,000

3DS 1,000,000

DS 220,000

PSP15,000

Vita 130,000

360   1,000,000

Wii U 1,200,000

ipad   2,000,000



 

Every time a new console launches, it still gets beaten by the current gen. Possibly due to shortages. Possibly due to the lack of an established library. Anyway, Black Friday is always huge in North America and this is 360 territory. I suspect that, in terms of home consoles sales it will go:

360 ( 800,000 with Kinect hype dying down)
PS3 (510,000)
Wii U (500,000)
Wii (100,000)

And with portables:

3DS (500,000-800,000)
PSV (70,000)
DS (60,000)
PSP (30,000)

Now would be a good time for me to say that I'm REALLY bad at this and that I just pulled these numbers out of my ass.
