I guess it was a glitch in my computer it had said the psp had sold only 13 million, well in any case, I live in miami, florida one of the most populated areas in the states, I am serious the nintendo wii is being sold at the best buy there were like 20 of them dude, australia and korea are not part of europe region so dolla can be quite, yes the nintendo wii is being sold at best buy in miami and I went there 2 months ago there were around six and last week there were 20, and around 50 boxes of 360, with about 30 boxes of ps3's. Besisdes I can believe the wii has sold 8 million, but i dont beleive the ps3 has sold only 3.4 million.

 you're free to believe what you want.  just be patient, listen us out bear with us for a few weeks and you'll change your opinion!  i guarantee it.

ps. if you find the wii's in plentiful supply you can scoop them up and sell them at a profit on ebay, and you're more than welcome to do so to take advantage of such opportunities! 



the Wii is an epidemic.

Plz tell me where that BestBuy is, becoz last month, a friends dad checked stores`in Miami during 3 DAYS and he didn´t found a single Wii.



Back on topic..

I think vgcharts will be within -5% to +15% for hardware and software...

The PS3 hasn't sold over 4 million. That's wishful thinking.

Here is what I got from multiplying Canadian numbers by the % Canadian data was out of US & Canada combined data...obviously the ratio of Canada's sales in USA+Canada sales changes month to month..

Still, as a rough estimate for NPD:

MayPachter (USA)May USMay CanMay totalVgc May
DS475,000507,15035,900549,000
Wii400,000396,80937,300397,000
Xbox 360225,000175,71412,300237,000

PSP175,000241,93515,000163,000
PS3100,00082,2786,50073,000
In my mind three current consoles are about 10% lower than that in the USA, but that is what you would get using last month's ratios.

Bump for Bunkum



Is may NPD a "4-week month"? If so, I predict the US-sales to be:

Wii - 368 k
360 - 214 k
PS2 - 187 k
PS3 - 66 k
