All hail the KING, Andrespetmonkey

Am i reading it right? VGC has it at:
360 805k
PS3 840k

So the PS3 is 130k overtracked?



Last month I think there was over tracking if you say so for both 360 (very small around 30k higher than NPD) and the Wii (big one around 130k-140k higher than NPD) and ioi said there weren't gonna be any adjustments in one of the comments. Will there be one this month ?

Ahh, I love NPD. The one time of the month where people show their true colors. It's funny to see the facade erased, and have everyone let their inner fanboys out. It's truly pathetic.

Way more entertaining than the numbers though.

And great performance for Modern Warfare 2! Forget the haters, it deserves ever copy sold.

I wasn't the only one to notice that then?

OT: Anyone else REALLY impressed at MK Wii being in there... Despite all the new releases and being "old"?


wow....  you nearly exploded black friday week. lol

Nerve = Touched?

lol.. yeah ok.  whatever you say.  you were beside yourself that week.  we both know you cant resist a dig at me and seece, never brave enough to actually say it though.

Well, nobody named names... Must have a guilty conscience

And didn't i tell you a while back, when you were hating on mike every day possible? I think so...

As for Seece, we make sure to have a weekly arguement.


you comparing me to mike?

Comparisons could be made, but as for then... No, i wasn't.

The margin between DS and PSP is epic! 1,7 million vs 294,000, that´s a difference in favor of DS at almost 1,4 million. Has DS ever owned PSP to such a large degree? I think it´s probably time for the PSP2 to be released next year.

No, the PS3 is about right because those numbers include Canada+Mexico which is about 10%.

forget npd im a member of vgc i like iois preview better hope he doesnt change his #s now cause of this


I would predict an adjustment.  this is too large a difference... maybe not a full adjustment, but a tweak.


same. i thnk people are 4getting the 360 outsold the ps3 a few times, just not a 110,000 scale lol.!

Well aside for blatant disagreements, we usually don't adjust just because NPD puts out different numbers.  Although sometimes we will make minor adjustments based off of it, NPD is just a comparison not a final word haha.  VGC is pretty confident in its American numbers.  Although we did seem to take MS, Ninty, and Sony BF week sales pretty strongly although its quite obvious NPD internal numbers aren't necessarily agreeing with them.  But hey that's not for me to decide. 

I do expect some minor adjustments but this happens all the time and not just because of NPD but we do compare though.

When doing comparisons to 2008, remember that last November for NPD was a five week month vs. a four week month this year.


yep 360 up on last year massive sales.

360 HW in November:

2008 - 836k

2009 - 819.5k

Down YOY.

On topic, I'm very surprised by the margin of victory. 100k is a lot, considering BF.

5 week v 4 weeks.  go figure.

Apologies, read Inigo's post the wrong way around.

Huge 360 sales; 4 weeks for the price of 5 weeks.

NPD, BF, VGC... it's oscillating so much... I wonder how America will settle post-holiday season.



Why is it so amazing the 360 could beat the PS3 in the US? if it wasn't for that whole BF thing, it was an easy prediction. What most are forgetting especially ps3 FANS, 710k for the PS3 in America, I don't think they've done that well ever.

PS3 is doing fine Leo, better than ever before.
