Pikmin 3 should actually have decent sales, all relative to the Wii U's userbase of course. Early estimates place it at 185k which is great for only 1.3 million US Wii U's sold lol

Mario Dream Team should be at 120k.

3DS should be the best selling console on the market as well.

Do you think the PSV is going to rise with it's new price-cut in early august?

Is this month 4 or 5 weeks?
I'm not expecting good 3DS sales.
Wii U between abysmal and non-existent numbers.

August ending on a Saturday, so 5 weeks

Thanks. All pray for Pikmin 3.

August is a four weeks month.

The five weeks months are always the last in any given quarter, so March, June, September and December. Also, every few years NPD adds a fifth week to January, because 52 weeks equate 364 days, so eventually there are enough excess days to make it necessary to have a longer reporting period for the month of January.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I see, thanks.

It could be a potential disaster, then, if it's only 4 weeks. Let's see how much Pikmin did for the console and for itself.

This should be an interesting month. As even though the generation is clearly dieing their was still a lot of noise with pricecuts for like 1 week and various other announcements. I think this month will not be too good though, might have a stellar september due to GTAV.

I think Pikmin 3 released early in the month, so a fifth week for August would hardly have a positive impact, but rather make it look worse overall. 120k (retail) for Pikmin 3 and 50k hardware is my guess. Should beat Vita hardware which saw a price cut.
