Man I'm starting to really buy in the whole VGChart.org sucks thing. According to them Sonic and the Secret Rings and New Super Mario Bros sold less in North American than they did in the United States according to NPD. WTF? And some games only have a slight difference from NPD sales, while some are off by a lot. Are we supposed to believe sales patterns are that much off in Canada from where they are in the US?



Thanks again Bunkum, as usual you are as reliable as the night following the day. Anyone that doubts you should be banned, & his source morons is the NPD. How that has eluded some of you is truly mindboggling, or you have no knowledge of his past legendary exploits on GAF. When kind sir will you be taking sw requests? Also, can someone give a ltd. total numbers on Wii specific titles? (Madden Wii included, no other PS2 shovelware pls.)

Okay Chris, listen up. ioi has gone over the formula of how he arrives at his data numerous times. Any data tracking service incorpoates extrapolations, meaning they can never be 100% accurate as they can never be comprehensive enough to track all retailers. Nor even account for every single copy sold at even tracked channels, but these (the NPD) are very, very well informed numbers. ioi usually accounts for & adjusts his numbers accordingly iirc. Though you must understand that there will always be a %-tile difference, what you see listed at the NPD is not without its innaccuracies, these are not exactly what each title sold in essence.

Mr. Sega was referring to specific titles, like Hotel Dusk, EBA, Trauma Center, (Wii) Okami, MGS3, Halo 2, FE:PoR, SSB:M, FFIII, RE4, etc.

If is possible, I want complete numbers of PS3 and Wii software in february and some X360 software numbers. In the last months, he post that stuff.

I await the fufillment of requests as well. Bunkum used to give complete publisher sw numbers PER CONSOLE! Sony, Activision, Konami, Take Two, Nintendo, MS, Ubi Soft, EA, etc. I used to drool like Homer Simpson, but I believe that's what got him into trouble iirc as someone ratted him out. I'm simply grateful he does requests, as greedy as I am I do not want him getting into any type of trouble for our sake.

Bad month for Sony, but people are going a little overboard. I mean 360 sold under 200k in its first February. I wouldn't consider paying $500/$600 for a console, but it amazes me that 2 million have. Sony will finish the year with close to XBOX 360 first year numbers in the end, maybe 8 million. On the pace currently (roughly 500k/month), without a single sale in Europe. If Sony sells only 125K in March then we will know they have a problem.



Lifetime Sales Prediction - 6/29/2013
Wii U - 38 million
XBOX One - 88 million
Playstation 4 - 145 million
