Forums - Sales Discussion - June 2015 NPD Thread! PS4, WiiU, XBO, 3DS up

You see why I say that NPD is not correct nintendo already confirmed that splatoon had sold 476k in June and we don't know if that's for the whole month, that's why I believe more vgc that npd almost 20k under tracked no way I don't trust these guys

Marso, dont forget digital sales, Splatoon has a lot of those in Japan, and probably too in the USA.
It is nice to have multiplayer games installed instead of having to put in a disc.

Nintendo need to stop using NPD then and start using VGC.

Microsoft:

“Xbox One and Xbox Live continue to see strong growth in sales and engagement. Xbox One sales in the U.S. were up 51 percent over June 2014 and active global Xbox Live users (Xbox One and Xbox 360) grew 22 percent.”

Should we automatically assume that 'up 51 percent' is refering to hardware sales?  Could sales refer to Xbox One revenue?

Man I would make a great PR lawyer. 

If revenue is up 51% and the unit price is down $50, that would make hardware sales up over 51% by quite a lot. I doubt MS would talk revenue is revenue increase is a lower % than hardware numbers increase. It's only if MS is counting software + hardware revenue that the revenue % would be > hardware 5. But I don;t think they are doing that.

You are assuming that Xbox One sales means hardware alone.   If you are correct, then I would be forced to concede.  However, it is an assumption.  Granted, you could still be absolutely right.  If you are wrong, then I would still make a great PR lawyer.

Yeah, I know, but NPD says that it has sold 455k including digital. And nintendo confirmed like late june that it had sold 476k, and it has always been that way with alot of titles. like Bayonetta 2, NPD says that it only has sold 153k until march or may i forgot, but it's not, I don't believe the vgchartz but i don't believe even less NPD. The proof is there 20k undertracked

We never got NPD sales for Splatoon. They always came from Nintendo themselves which included digital sales. That 476k was for all of the Americas while 455k is for the US alone.



According to VGChartz the Xbox One sold 130,000+ in the last week of June.

Now something tells me that's not what happened.

Yet again more evidence that VGChartz is not an accurate source to use.

Yeah, at this rate the Sega Saturn will end up with quite a few more games than the Wii U.


I meant first party games. Saturn had a lot of support in Japan, especially great arcade ports of fighting games.


No chance. Sega Saturn had more first party games than the N64.
