Forums - Nintendo Discussion - WiiU Overtracked on VGC? ioi (Confirmed Overtracked)

A Dedicated thread for this rather than derailing threads any further

As others have pointed out the Wii U is tracking is unusually close to the last known shipped numbers.

Wii U

Nintendo global numbers through June 30: 6.68 million
VGC global numbers through June 28: 6.60 million

end of June we have a difference of 60k between shipped and sold, from Mediatecreate/Famitsu we know that 40k of that is in Japan. Leaves 20k for the rest of the entire world.


This would be 80k Units on shelves which is highly unlikely. So the question is, is it overtracked?  If so, by how much?  

ioi, if you're reading this, it should be fixed

Another thread that makes a point about WiiU Sales - http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=189405&page=1#

Updated:  As of today 10/29/2014 it has been confirmed that WiiU is indeed overtracked with  Nintendo Shipping 0.61 for the quarter.  As of this moment VGC has WiiU Sold more than it has Shipped.

Nintendo global numbers through June 30: 6.68 million

Weren't these the global numbers shipped as of the FY2013 close? As in, on June 30, they reported their global shipments as of FY2013 close, which happens at the end of march.

Gen 8 Hardware Predictions (After 6 years)

PS4 -- 110 million , X1 50 million, Wii U 35 million

Currently playing: Rayman Legends, New Super Luigi U

Current backlog: Batman Arkham City, Metroid Prime Trilogy, Pikmin 3

Next games for purchase: Super Smash Bros Wii U, Project CARS, Guacamelee! STCE, Lego City Undercover, Hyrule Warriors

Yep, but not more than 100,000-150,000.

 

Hype level: over 9,000!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! D: D: D:

This is why I just wait to hear about their financial reports to get a good idea at where they are standing.

No, these are numbers through June 30.  They were reported on July 30.

The difference is actually more like 60k (June 28 vs. 30), most of which is in Japan alone...So we're maybe looking at 10k on shelves globally minus Japan, with a console selling 50-60k a week...



The One and Only

VizionEck.com

wi u :80k on shelves in over 50 territories
xb1: over 1m on shelves in just 13 territories


im i doing it right?


seems legit

 

i lost my bet with der Nebel

after 10m worldwide ps4 sales announcement at gamescom, while vgc was at 9, and the 538k npd september, there is no chance ps4 will sell less than 15m units unitl end of 2014

It seems possible that the numbers are not completely far off, because prior to this quarter there was a lot of unsold U's in stores and in warehouses. Retailers may be getting rid of accumulated excess stock over the previous months.

Also, for the record, your first line in OP is unnecessary. Not all aspects of another thread MUST be made into their own thread.

However I like the thread, I just think you're wrong to say that discussing shipments in a U vs XB thread is off topic.



I bet with DD_Bwest that the PS4 will not outsell the WiiU by 4 million or more by the end of 2014 globally, lifetime. I win if it's true, he wins if it's not.

I'm just waiting for their next financial reports. I find it tiring arguing over something that cannot be proven for a long time.


I don't think it is, if so, not by much and the Ninty reports will give a great number anyway.


Wii U is very very sad. Show some love please. ~ Predicted correctly how 3DS will sell 260K N3DS Launch Week in Japan!
