Quarter 3, 2012 Sales Update (VGC Exclusive Special)

Forums - Sales Discussion - Quarter 3, 2012 Sales Update (VGC Exclusive Special)

Introduction



Hey guys, and thank you for reading (or glancing at) my Quarterly Sales Blog. This is my Quarter 3, 2012 end special.

For those unfamiliar with this (and most will be) I joined VGC because I was interested in Video Games sales, particularly the PS3/360 battle. I started making this quartly sales updates to reflect trends in game sales.

What these are, are simply tables listing the best selling video games and consoles. In BOLD are games which have increased their position (e.g. 75Th -> 73rd) from my last edition (usually the last quarter).

What this does is show you what games are selling well with respect to others. It shows you where the latest games (usually bold since new games sell well) are in respect to other games on a sales level, and it shows you how well old games are carrying out.

Most of you will be unfamiliar with my Quarterly updates because I've only posted 1 on VGC in the past. However I have done this type of analysis since January 2008 on GameTrailers. So older editions are here

Q2 2012

Q3 2010

GameTrailers Archive

I will keep posting these exclusively on VGC since I have basically abandoned my Gametrailers account. So expect these every quarter.

For the Q3 special I will be attaching weekly sales graphs after work today (they are done, I just need access to paint to convert them from excel graphs to images - I use linex on my daily computer). At the end of the year I will also include annual sales graphs, both from an aligned launch perspective (cool for Wii/PS2), and from a yearly perspective (cool for PS3/360)

Data updated to October 6th, 2012

P.S. Sales data for older generation games will look different in my Q3 Update over my Q2 update. This is because VGC updated their database giving many PS1 games about 0.5 million extra sales. I also forgot to update PS2 software in my Q2 update (and I think I forgot to do it in my previous Q4 update as well) so some PS2 games got a decent jump in sales. I put PS1/PS2 games with large software changes in italics.

Enjoy!!

General Information

There are
5 tables. The first table lists every video game selling over 5 million units, on all platforms. The second table lists every current generation video game selling over 3 million units. The third table lists current gen software sales for platforms specifically. The fourth table lists the best selling console’s of all time section, and the fifth table shows regional sales of consoles which have been listed in the VGC weekly sales database at some point (So I still have PS2 data).

Remember
bolded games or systems increased in rank since last edition.

VGC has PS2 sales at 153.68 million as of 2011 end, with 2.25 million units sold in that year. Sony claims 154.5 million units shipped by this point, with 4.7 million shipped in that year. So this puts approximately 720k units on shelves. Since FYQ3 2011, Sony has been shipping less then 50% of PS2 systems from the prior year, so far all simple estimation purposes, I will assume for Quarters not given that PS2 shipments are 60% of what they were in 2011 (So I'm being optimistic). Also I'm going to assume Sony sells everything they ship except for 1/3rd the previous years shipment. (which would put PS2 at 700k units sold less then shipped as VGC had it).

Sony claims 0.6 million units shipped in Q1 of this year (Q4FY 2011). 60% of Q1/Q2 FY 2011 sales (April 1st-Sept 31st) give PS2 0.7 and 0.6 million units shipped respectively, and assuming everything is sold except for 1/3rd the last shipment. This would put PS2 at 0.6 million shipped for Q1, 0.84 million shipped for Q2, 0.72 million shipped for Q3, and 0.54 million shipped for the future Q4.

What this gives:     This would give Sony 0.94 million units sold for Q1, 0.78 million units for Q2, 0.78 million units for Q3 and 0.54 million for the future Q4. This leaves a gap between units shipped and sold of 0.38 million for Q3 and 0.20 million for Q4. This puts PS2 sales at 2.50 million for this Q3 report, and it will end at 2.88 million sold.

So 2.5 million sold for 2.16 million shipped, yes it is selling more then it shipped, but it's shipping significantly less then it used to and....well PS2 should phase out soon. I have no clue when it will, maybe in 2 years, but wow, 12 years and it's still selling nearly as much as phasing out current gen systems.

Now this means that PS2 will be selling 0.58 million better then in 2011 if we use VGC's PS2 sales data (selling 2.25 million in 2011), but when you look at how much PS2 has been shipping in the last 3 years, if we trusted VGC data, PS2 sales should be 5 million behind the shipped value, but even VGC's own PS2 total isn't that far off. Clearly VGC can't track PS2, and that's why they stopped sharing PS2 data (although they still give PS2 software sales in Japan).

For regional sales, I am going to assume 60% of PS2 sales are in the Middle East, South America, Africa, Canada, etc. I'm going to assume 25% of PS2 sales are from Europe, and 12.5% are from the US. About 2.5% are attributed by Japan (Media Create). So if this quarter PS2 sold 0.78 million, this means that 0.195 million sales are gained in Europe, and 0.0975 sales are gained in USA. I estimate that PS2 sales in USA are 48.72 at end of 2011 (53.65 million sales in North America x (10/11) since Mexico sales are minor, and Canada is 1/10th the US population)

PS2 hardware sales data in Japan is obtained using Media Create information, while software sales data is supplied by VGC.

P.S. 0.78 million sales for Q3 is quite high for PS2. It's more then the DS, Wii, PSP and PSV for the quarter, and 2.5 million is more then the DS and PSP for the year. However this is not unusual, and it doesn't mean PS2 will outsell any of those systems during the year. PS2 does not get a large boost in sales in Q4 like most consoles, and it's sales are fairly evenly spread during the year. Still impressive though. - Thank ethomaz for pointing this out to me, and helping me with my PS2 algorithm. If you guys disagree with my estimations, please feel free to comment, I put a lot of time into this, and I want to get it right.

Reserved for Graphs - I had no internet last week, so I didn't have a chance to post these, but I will post them either Monday or Tuesday. Expect weekly hardware and software sales for the last 4 months for all 3 major regions (USA, Europe, and Japan) as well as global trends. VGC give global trends in their weekly analysis's, but not regional, which are just as interesting.

Around the Network

Wow this is a very impressive thread. Can't imagine how long it had to take to make.

BTW I can't believe MW3 is already almost to 15 million. What's even more insane is BO2 has a chance to perform better than it.



Glad to see you did adjustments to the PS2 numbers.

Will be exciting to see where the new games this holiday season land.



Awesome thread.

Nice to see PS2 still going strong. Almost makes me want to plug it in again...
It's about time people start getting bored by shooters, they've taken the fun out of these lists.



So much data...

Just for fun, let's see what "matches" we have for DS and 3DS games and PSP and Vita games.

DS

New Super Mario Bros --> NSMB2
Nintendogs --> Nintendogs+ cats
Mario Kart DS --> Mario Kart 7
Animal Crossing: Wild World --> Animal Crossing: New Leaf
Super Mario 64 DS --> Super Mario 3D Land
Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies --> Dragon Quest XI?
Cooking Mama --> Cooking Mama 4
Professor Layton and the Curious Village --> Professor Layton 5
Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games --> Mario & Sonic at London
The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglgaass --> Ocarina of Time 3D
Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time/Darkness --> Pkmn Mystery Dungeon 3
LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga --> Various Lego games
Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box --> Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney
Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story --> Paper Mario: Sticker Star

So far, the 3DS has replaced or is about to replace 14 of their killer apps! Let's see the PSP...

Oh... darn.

Maybe that's one the the PSP's bigger problems?



Love and tolerate.

Oh, but Super Mario 3D Land will far outsell Super Mario 64 DS, and don't forget 3DS also has Tales of the Abyss (never had a localized Tales game on the DS before), Resident Evil Revelations (Maybe replaced Metroid Prime Hunters as an early First Person/high graphic title), and has Fire Emblem Awakening coming out, which is looking to be the best selling Fire Emblem yet.

PSV does have a few:

Resistance: Retribution --->Resistance
Persona 1-3 --> Persona 4
LittleBigPlanet --> LittleBigPlanet
Disgaea 1 & 2 --> Disgaea 3

And Uncharted: Golden Abyss is real nice too.

However Nintendo has Monster Hunter now, which cripples the PSV in Japan, it's main region, and Sony in general is in trouble.
