Next Xmas season, Nintendo should bundle NSMBWii and mario galaxy with black wii and knock off $10 the usual price to have another outstanding performance, and should easily have a shot at 83 M WW.

Note: The LA Times has said Mario & Sonic Winter Games combined to hit 1m units. All versions of Madden totalled 1.6m for the month. Zelda has been confirmed to be over 600k

so I'd say:

11) Zelda  - 620k

12) NSMB DS - 580k

13) Mario & Sonic DS - 530k

14) Mario & Sonic Wii - 470k

15) Madden NFL 10 X360 - 460k

16) Scribblenauts  DS - 450k

17) Mario Kart DS - 440k

18) Assassin's Creed II - 435k

19) Madden NFL 10 PS3 - 415k

20) Just Dance Wii - 400k

AC2 PS3 is confirmed to be 417k.

You kidding? With all the AAA software coming from Nintendo this year andthe additiona l selling power os NSMBW the Wii will most certainly be at least flat with YOY sales. I'm expecting sales to be more in the 86-87 million Area.



If i lose access to this profile as well....I'm done with this site.....You've been warned!!.....whoever you are...

Happy Wii60 user. Me and my family are a perfect example of where hardcore meets casual and together mutate into something awesome.

December was a massive success for all companies in 2009. Nintendo managed to move tons of hardware and software, while Sony and Microsoft had a very successful end of the year bang with hardware sales. New Super Mario Bros. Wii was the biggest selling title on Wii in December, with sales likely to stay strong well into 2010.

Wii:3.81M,
PS3, 1.36M
Xbox 360 1.31M

Ps3 BEATS 360 OMGGGGGGG!

Not really.

1.36 vs 1.31 is a statistical tie.

I really wouldn't call it beating it based on how NPD numbers are calculated.

 

You wouldn't but I would

PS3 BEAT 360!! (by around 50K too)

This was a shocker to me, but less so after the SONY internal reports said 1.35 Million were sold

Well i'll put it this way.

Anyone who knows anything about statistics and the kind of thing NPD does wouldn't say the PS3 beat the 360.

It's well within the margin of error.


As for the Wii numbers... seems unbeleivable to me.

So what?

seriously are you really getting this deep into me just saying "PS3 beat 360" (which no-one was expecting), in pure numbers that did happen, chill out

It didn't though.  Because of the "margin of error."  The PS3 didn't sell 1.36 and the 360 didn't sell 1.31.


The Ps3 sold ~1.36 and the 360 sold ~1.31.

It's a big difference.


It's also not "getting into you."

It's stating a fact for people who don't know much about statistics.

So, this means the PS3 could actually have outsold the 360 by even more then 50k?  60k maybe? 80? 100?

Or less.  Or even been outsold.  It's too unknown to call anything statistically.

When you consider the VGchartz data as well... it seems more likely it either won by a lower margin or it lost outright.

Though still not definitive in anyway.

Wow people really went at it... Ps3 won by nothing, it was a tie... this, that... supply constrained.... OMG!!!!Pay attention to Nintendo numbers hahaha those are some really numbers. Almost 4 million... US alone? What about canada and mexico?? This shit is amazing. Super Mario Bros Wii.... :O

Another take for X360 & Ps3.... Does it really matter? Looking it as a whole, Microsoft already won. It doesn't matter if at the end Ps3 sells more (which is gonna happen, at the end of this gen ps3>X360). But Microsoft has already taken a big chunk of what Sony had. I believe that Sony lost this gen. Just look at the ps2, completely dominated. But now we have that the wii is shattering everything, and that the X360 is fighting neck to neck vs Ps3, even though PS3 has something the X360 will never have.... Japan. So, when I look at the sales right now, MS already won. Yeah, ps3 won December by... 50k? (R u serious?) but at then end, Sony is the one that has lost the most.

MS has done well, Xbox is now recognize as a big competitor in both US and Europe, and has taken a lot from what Sony used to have. Competition is good for everyone.

Now, on another note.... Damn Nintendo, you have done it well. I wonder if they are gonna have a bigger year in 2010? Bigger Holidays? Just bring the black wii, and a few bundles and this year will be awesome... once again.

 I agree. This was definitely a big shift, MS went from 25 million to 39 million which is a big win for them. But most importantly they've actually been making money on their gaming division for more than two years now and have continued to dominate the software charts. Pretty big feat for the underdog in the industry. I would put Sony's biggest accomplishment in getting blu-ray to become the standard. However the PS3 have made them lose a lot of money and they're continuously forced to reduce price in order to keep in the market share race thus making them lose more money still. Nintendo is of course the biggest winner, selling Wiis at high margins in big quantities is a definite business success.

I'm glad you think that but If I feel sony wand and natal wouldn't do next to overwhelming results then I would very much agree with you.  But with a lower price and high budget titles Wi should do close to 90 Million late this year, meaning 85 Million+
