Console Sales of First Party IPs released in 2015

Forums - Sales Discussion - Console Sales of First Party IPs released in 2015

So Nintendo won and only with the Wii U, against the paper juggernaut of PS4, if 3DS sales were there... Great year for Nintendo's software! I'm sure this year with Zelda U and the possible release of the NX it will be another great year for the great N.

2016 is going to be a really interesting year for 1st parties. With Sony bringing their big guns for the PS4 and Nintendo releasing the last big games for the WiiU (and possibly a NX release), a lot of things could happen.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

what's your point?

..because mine is that vgchartz software tracking is massively off as evidence by them reporting larger sell-in numbers for splatoon than nintendo shipped thus making the comparision as flawed as vgchartz tracking wild guesses algorithum.

The point is that sales in 2016 are included in the numbers posted in the OP. For Splatoon specifically, it means that VGC numbers didn't exceed Nintendo's shipments.

Granted, VGC is only a few thousand units below shipment numbers, so their numbers are definitely too high. But your evidence is not what you believed it to be, and it would have looked worse for you if VGC had already posted numbers for more weeks in 2016 than only the two that are there.



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

Vgchartz software numbers? Ha. Nothing to see here. Haven't been accurate for years so by now they will be miles off.

Kilter is right.



I'm not really here!

Uncharted NDC is way high. The number include's bundling, which is shouldn't.



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

i'll take it that these are vgchartz numbers as that splatoon sold-in number is greater than the splatoon shipped number...

Yeah just seen that.  You should probably adjust to the most accurate numbers

It's the same for Nintendo and Microsoft.  Splatoon and Mario maker sold many copies bundled and it's the same for the likes of gears of war,  tomb raider,  halo and forza.  Should they also not be counted?

Should we go with Nintendo's report for their numbers? 

Splatoon was 4.06 million, Mario Maker 3.34 million, Mario Party 10 - 1.65 million

 

If they showed more than their top 10 we could find out D:



Sony sales are sad, just 3.66 Uncharted and 2 million Bloodborne sold on 36 million install base.



Nintendo making a ton of money from software as always.
