Drake said: LOL this bunkum is trying to make fun of two (or more) gaming boards at once with his numbers. He posted a fake last week here, he claimed on GAF that the bunkum here was an impostor while it was really him, now he's giving new numbers (a new fake?) but it's clear that the numbers aren't out yet (othwerwise we would see other sources like gamedaily.biz, gamespot and the guys at GAF who have a deal with NPD reporting). So just wait.
I didn't know bunkum said that on gaf, actually i thought quite the opposite for some reason. I feel incredibly stupid now, lol.



http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601204&sid=aeP6KYaQ4o_k&refer=technology Feb. 20 (Bloomberg) -- Nintendo Co.'s Wii outsold Sony Corp.'s PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox 360 during January as consumers bought 436,000 of the video-game consoles. Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox 360 was the second-most purchased machine with sales of 294,000, followed by PlayStation 3 with 244,000, Credit Suisse analyst Heath Terry said today in a report, citing NPD Group Inc. data. Wii is outselling PlayStation 3 by almost 2-to-1, the report said. Consumers have been attracted to Wii's price, at half the cost of the least-expensive PlayStation 3, and a wireless controller that can be swung like a bat or tennis racquet during play. Both Wii and PlayStation 3 were introduced in November as competitors to the Xbox 360, which was released in 2005. Wii's $250 price tag compares to $499 and $599 for the PlayStation 3. The Xbox 360 sells for $299 and $399. Wii sales fell from 604,000 units in December, the smallest drop of the three consoles, Terry wrote. The Xbox 360 had the biggest decline, dropping from 1.13 million units while PlayStation 3 sales declined from 491,000. PlayStation 3 includes a Blu-ray DVD player that allows users to watch movies in a high-definition format, in addition to playing games. Production snags with the player created supply problems during the holiday shopping season, forcing Sony to concede market share to Wii.



Good source, dreamcast, but I have this no so fresh feeling that they might be following this thread, too. Oh yeah, your signature hates Wii Opera :(

So bunkum was telling the truth (second time round) ?

Oh, man, I guess that Bloomberg is a trustworthy source...



I AM THE EGGMAN, THEY ARE THE EGGMAN... I AM THE WALRUS, GOO-GOO-G'JOB! ("I am the walrus", The Beatles)

Haha, this thread is comedy gold!! GAF is such a joke, they talk about their "exclusivity" deal with NPD and all that bullsh*t and the numbers are leaked all over the net!! sonycowboy is a waste of time VG Charts >> GAF



Well, on the other hand, if these numbers are just rumours, it would be very funny, just like the ones that Cocadaboa does in Brazil (including a famous one about a site called Sexkut, hehe).

These software numbers are not right, anyone want the real ones?



All you bunkum haters need to seriously bow down before him. He was nice enough to post the CORRECT NUMBERS hours before anyone else and they were spot on. BTW he gets the NPD data himself (or gets to look at it) thats how hes knows.
