Pretty funny how 360 and Wii beat PS3 the last 14 months in a row (not a joke, actually 14 months in a row) and these NPD threads averaged 2-3 pages during that time. Suddenly Sony wins and it's 13 pages long.

Seems some people like to ignore the NPD's when they're not winning I guess..

well its because people got used to that now that this is somthing different they discuss it alot


 The numbers are different every month, as well as the order of the various systems. Sometimes PS2 beats PSP, sometimes not.

 

So that isn't it.

@ Sharky

I wholeheartedly agree. This is the longest NPD thread to date. And the first time the PS3 hasn't came in dead last, and was within 6k of the Wii. But that's not the reason why this thread is so long (So much sarcasm in that last sentence, I can hardly breathe).



Why not trust NPD numbers ? Don't tell me vgchartz estimates are more accurate than NPD figures...

 NPD does the same thing VGC does, except with a larger sample, but both are estimates based on their samples, however sample size isn't the only decider in accuracy



 

Predictions:Sales of Wii Fit will surpass the combined sales of the Grand Theft Auto franchiseLifetime sales of Wii will surpass the combined sales of the entire Playstation family of consoles by 12/31/2015 Wii hardware sales will surpass the total hardware sales of the PS2 by 12/31/2010 Wii will have 50% marketshare or more by the end of 2008 (I was wrong!!  It was a little over 48% only)Wii will surpass 45 Million in lifetime sales by the end of 2008 (I was wrong!!  Nintendo Financials showed it fell slightly short of 45 million shipped by end of 2008)Wii will surpass 80 Million in lifetime sales by the end of 2009 (I was wrong!! Wii didn't even get to 70 Million)

Well NPD is considered publicly as the most accurate, by Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft. So why not trust their report ?



Because ps3 couldn`t outsell x360 in Usa, even though x360 had shortages. That is unreal. lol. =))
