The OFFICIAL Jan 2007 NPD Thread

Forums - Sales Discussion - The OFFICIAL Jan 2007 NPD Thread

If the numbers a) are Legit and b) were just released... Wouldn't every major industry trade site have the numbers? Websites like...www.gamasutra.com, www.gamesindustry.biz, www.gamedaily.biz, nextgeneration...not to mention Gamespot...Kotaku and the rest... So far, the data is not on anything other than where bunkum(s) is/are mentioned in forums

the numbers are legit and that fuckin mods being a dumbass. Why the fuck would you ban bunkum? The numbers are legit, you stupid ass. They're just leaked, which we should be happy about, not ban him. Somebody needs to punch that mod,. I will do it if I can. ioi, ban that mod. Your forum finally gets some publicity and the mod bans him.



Hi everyone. Basically the situation is that we do not have official, finalised figures yet as NPD are witholding them until next week now. Bunkum's ban is just a temporary ban to prevent any more confusion by posting non-official figures. Hope this clears things up. Broshnat VGCharts



If it's the real bunkum, and every indication is it is, then those numbers are probably true. Now you've banned him and he wont come back to your forum. He was just trying to get back at GAF by helping you. So you go and ban him. You verify the figures yourself by calling them "non-finalized" and "unnoficial". That is basically just comfirmation they are true, just the finals may be different by a small amount. We know you probably have inside contacts with NPD, so you know the numbers are true.



bunkum has been unbanned.

Wow, only fanboys could be so worked up over a bunch of numbers! Chill out everyone - its not like the numbers change the world or anything (they just add fuel to flamewars :>).

Well ,after the format and the fact that it was bunkum those were probably near-final and leaked data .We have been fortunate to hear of those here .Bunkum didnt say anytime those were the final NPD numbers ,not even that those were NPD numbers .I think mod overreacted but well it is of wise people to rectify and they did it very quickly so we shouldnt jump to their neck .

Thought Bunkum said those were NPD numbers. By the way, you´ve said at Meri that Bunkum was readmited after been benned, What´s the matter of his expulsion?. Out of this What do we know about the veracity of this numbers?. Anyway, on Tuesday we´ll know more. Un saludo Diomedes.



Ack-hem... well, since no other member has done it yet... Sony will reign supreme (I dare you to challenge me. I've got Gwaad on my side!) Microsoft will come at a close second (Gears and LP help here) Nintendo will have sold no Wii units, in spite of reports of them 'flying off shelves.' I see a 66% increase in Nintendo sales loss, causing a recall in all markets, including the foreign child-labor industry. Black market organs will take a hit, followed my the inevitible decline of MAC computer usage due to liver cancer. The online porn industry will continue to flourish, though third party fishermen will have to work twice as hard to meet their quota. Nyko will sell no wireless Wii sensor bars, and Xbox Live will continue to lose to Sony's superior online service.



Things and stuff.

Kwaad said: We will see if Nintendo can raise the sales for febuary. If the sales for March remain that high. I'll give 2007 to nintendo. But as it stands... the PS3 is higher than expected. and the Wii... is lower than I expected... and the 360 is lower than expected.
I'm surprised you felt this way being that according to your walmart ps3 should have outsold all else 4 to 1.
