Forums - Sales Discussion - The Offical October 2009 NPD Thread (4 weeks ending Oct 31)

NPD data will be out in 3.5 hours from this post. It covers the four weeks ending October 31, 2009 - so no Modern Warfare 2 or anything but we do get to see how PS3/360 performed against Wii at $200.

Brett has a preview of the data up here.  You can see how systems are performing via VGC US estimates below.

Monthly highlights:

  • 25 titles have sold over 100,000 units
  • Total sales for the top ten titles comes in at around 3.5m units
  • Uncharted 2: Among Thieves was the top selling software with 570,000 units sold
  • Wii Fit Plus came in at number two with over 460,000 units sold
  • Borderlands sold over 370,000 units across Xbox360 and PS3
  • Halo 3: ODST sold a further 275,000 units taking total sales to over 2 million

All hail the KING, Andrespetmonkey

This would be the first year on year monthly drop for the 360 if true.

Cool.



Bet between Slimbeast and Arius Dion about Wii sales 2009:


If the Wii sells less than 20 million in 2009 (as defined by VGC sales between week ending 3d Jan 2009 to week ending 4th Jan 2010) Slimebeast wins and get to control Arius Dion's sig for 1 month.

If the Wii sells more than 20 million in 2009 (as defined above) Arius Dion wins and gets to control Slimebeast's sig for 1 month.

I want to see what DJ hero did I'm thinking bomba.

Hope Demon's Souls makes it to the top ten although I'm not holding my breath :(

Do we still get VGC numbers for the week today?



 

Predictions:Sales of Wii Fit will surpass the combined sales of the Grand Theft Auto franchiseLifetime sales of Wii will surpass the combined sales of the entire Playstation family of consoles by 12/31/2015 Wii hardware sales will surpass the total hardware sales of the PS2 by 12/31/2010 Wii will have 50% marketshare or more by the end of 2008 (I was wrong!!  It was a little over 48% only)Wii will surpass 45 Million in lifetime sales by the end of 2008 (I was wrong!!  Nintendo Financials showed it fell slightly short of 45 million shipped by end of 2008)Wii will surpass 80 Million in lifetime sales by the end of 2009 (I was wrong!! Wii didn't even get to 70 Million)

Can't wait to see Demon's souls number. Even if it doesn't make the top ten, the number will be out for sure.

We will get VGC numbers but I'm a bit behind with all the Modern Warfare stuff etc so it will not be until later...

Yeah I wouldn't blame you. Trying to track such a huge release worldwide and make the numbers as close to reality as possible is no easy thing.



I predict meltdowns.
